Viva Brazil Newcastle


Viva Brazil Churrascaria is an award winning, authentic, Brazilian style Steakhouse. For how hyped it seemed ans lovely to looks and sound I don’t really think it worth it simply because the meat took long time to come and it was quite small in portion.  In addition to this the restaurant itself overall is very noisy.

They were alot going on at once making it quite hard to just enjoy your food the way one would like to enjoy it.
