In Brazil, Picanha is the very best cut of meat, famed for its succulent texture and exceptional flavour. It’s from this celebrated cut that the authentic Brazilian restaurant takes its name.

Set in a city steeped in history and boastful of its cultural heritage, Picanha by Fazenda brings a taste of South America amongst decadent surroundings in an atmosphere that depicts the modernity of true 'churrascaria' dining; offering guests a truly unique experience.

Fusing the traditional gaúcho-style cooking and rodizio dining that has become increasingly popular in the UK, Picanha by Fazenda offers guests a selection of up to eleven grilled meats of the finest quality. Alongside the signature Picanha (pronounced pee-can-ya), other tender cuts of meat include sirloin (contra-filé), gammon and pineapple (presunto com abacaxi) and the firm favourite lamb (cordeiro).

Rodizio, meaning 'to rotate', derives from the tradition whereby Passadores offer continuous tableside service, expertly carving each cut as and when you prefer. Guests can use a small double-sided card to control the flow of their meats, requesting their particularly preferred cuts if desired.

The journey, however, extends beyond the succulent selection of meats. Guests can indulge in freshly prepared salads, cured meats and cheeses as well as the traditional Brazilian dish Feijoada (black bean and meat stew) from Picanha's salad bar.
