Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Much like Brazil, the country that inspires it, Fadenza is a busy, atmospheric place with a wonderful, lively feel. The concept is simple: pay the set price for lunch or dinner, then sit back and get ready to sample a huge array of meats cooked in a multitude of ways, delivered to your table by welcoming and attentive staff who keep the whole experience from feeling conveyor-belt impersonal. With eight cuts available for lunch and a gluttonous fifteen for dinner, it can be tough to keep up the pace, but if you turn your handy card from green to red the servers will give you a break while your stomach catches up. Meat is cooked medium rare as standard, but you can request that some cuts are cooked to your preference. Sides are served buffet-style and range from cured meats to salad to feijoada, making a welcome contrast to all that meat – but don’t overload as the skewers are definitely the main event. Brilliant for groups (a set price makes the end of meal bill-wrangling a dream) they have convincing veggie and vegan options too. The wine list is full of accessible choices, and desserts (if you have room) are mostly light and refreshing.

Centrally located on the highly reputable George Street, Fazenda Edinburgh sits at the foot of Edinburgh Castle. Surrounded by iconic landmarks and luxurious retailers, the 175-cover rodizio restaurant is one of the many lavish establishments in this flourishing district.

Fazenda offers an amalgam of Scotland’s heritage and South American tradition by blending the sophistication and style of their modern interior and authentic rodizio experience with their fervour for finest service experience and passion for sharing their South American roots.

The Fazenda journey begins with a sharing board of Picada; a selection of cured meats, cheese and pão de queijo. Guests are then invited to continue their experience with a selection of Brazilian and Argentinian side accompaniments. These sides were created by Fazenda’s very own Executive Chef Fran Martinez and were curated ensuring to pay tribute to the roots of their heritage. Here, you will find dishes such as purê de bata doce; a sweet potato dish infused with feta cheese and mint, the Brazilian classic Feijoada - bean and meat stew, and many more. Guests of Fazenda are then invited to indulge in the freshly grilled meats, ‘churrascaria’-style (‘from the barbecue’) carved from succulent joints at the table by the passadores with exceptional standards of service.

With a driven passion for exquisite wines, this rodizio restaurant showcases a carefully selected wine list; a key ingredient for the ultimate Fazenda experience. From old world to new world styles, inclusive of a comprehensive selection of Argentinian and Brazilian wines, there is an offer for all palates. Fazenda's brilliance for the finest food and drink extends to their selection of world-renowned spirits such as cachaças, premium whiskies and an array of outstanding cocktails curated with the South American culture in mind. Fazenda Edinburgh also boasts its own Taste of Scotland menu, with cocktails, spirits and more featuring local distillers and producers.

Open for lunch and evening service, guests can enjoy Fazenda Rodizio Bar & Grill anytime throughout the week.
