This was our second time at Preto in Kingston. The food is excellent and the staff are fantastic. We would definitely visit again.
Outstanding meats and buffet selection. Good and discreet service.
Very tasty food. Very friendly and helpful staff. I recommend 100% to meat lovers :)
Typical and affodable brazilian restaurant. The service is awesome and food delicious
Food is amazing, really good prices. Will definitely go back! :))
Very help with the good this was my first time I will visit again
Our whole experience was very enjoyable and very worth every penny! The food was lovely and the staff were very friendly. We will be recommending Preto and will certainly return.
Very nice food and good, friendly service. Highly recommended :-)
Great lunch with views over River Thames, good value
Meat was chewy, fatty and salty. Sides were ok I guess, chicken was edible. Al the meats were terrible though, very disappointed
Lovely staff very attentive but not over the top and very relaxing evening. Meat came out regularly but not majorly fast which was a good pace
Lovely food - meat to die for, service fabulous and all staff were friendly and very smiley! Great atmosphere - I wouldn’t hesitate in going again.
TERRIBLE, in fact non existent service from the moment myself and my dining partner entered the restaurant. We were left waiting at the entrance for about 5 minutes upon entry, several members of staff walked past us, none acknowledged leading us to have to call for service, and this was the tone for the entire time at this restaurant.
After being seated, we were left for 50 minutes with no service, despite many obvious attempts to get attention including eye contact and hand signals which were ignored, before my friend got up and sought someone at the bar to place our food and drinks order. We had to ask for cutlery etc and seek any attention after our food was brought, some items including the fried banana were not received so had to be reordered.
Once we had finished our meal and were ready to leave, again, obvious attempts at getting service were ignored and my friend physically had to get up to go and find someone AGAIN.
Honestly this experience has been one of the worst customer service experiences I have ever received and there is absolutely no way I would waste my time in returning to this restaurant or recommending it.
Harsh to judge service given these difficult times but restaurant felt under staffed. But food was excellent.
Very unorganised, arrived at 7.05 for booking at 7.15 and still got seated only at 7.20 then it took almost 25 mins for a waiter to take our order even though other people who were seated after us had already ordered but at least he was attentive.
Place was busy so they should have had more staff instead of 1 girl who was hostess, table cleaner & order taker. Also, while we & other people kept waiting for service, waiters preffered cleaning tables & kept ignoring us. I've been to Preto Leatherhead which I think sadly closed recently & I would easily say to go there instead but no longer can.
Food was decent but not the same quality as at Leatherhead. The feijoada was watery with barely any beans in it. Luckily feijoa was much better. I liked how you could choose your sides as at Leatherhead they just gave you whatever without asking you & if you happened to ask them to bring feijoa they would otherwise you wouldn't even know they were serving it. Pao de queiso was nice, but the banana fritters' taste was spoiled by too much oil & breadcrumbs. In regards to the meat selection I was sadly dissaponted. The beef on the day was very medium done (I don't like blood on my plate) but I guess they were in a rush & didn't taste fresh. No matter how much seasoning & marinate you put on beef if it's not fresh it will still leave a bad taste in your mouth. Luckily the gammon was as good as ever & helped to remove the beef taste from my mouth. For desserts we had brigadeiro (delicious as ever) & a flan which was very good. Unfortunately desserts took forever & when we asked the waiter when they would come he thought we were joking it hasn't arrived yet. That's how long it took. He was sorry & luckily we were patient & desserts were yummy. Finally when asking for the bill we had to ask to amend it as they didn't include the 50% discount. Normally I'd pay and support the business in such times but it just wasn't worth ir. I won't return to Kingston & try my luck at other Pretos.
very slow service considering there were not much customer at the time. waited 25 minutea for the sides to come and waited 15 mins for the bill to pay.
Thought all the staff were great and the food was fabulous
My first time here. It was absolutely brilliant. I would recommend it to any meat lover.
Probably our 8th visit here and 2nd since covid-19. This was an "after rugby training" treat for our very hungry and meat-loving 13yo son. He absolutely loved it!
AMBIENCE/SERVICE - We were seated near 3 tables of friends/family celebrating a young boy's birthday. Several kids running around tables. Very noisy conversation and occasional shouting/singing. On this particular night this did not bother us at all, but if you were planning a quiet/romantic meal, you'd definitely ask to be seated in another part of the restaurant. The service was confused and very slow at the start - no plates/cutlery for a long time! Our son became very upset with all the meat the waiters were walking past our table while he was very hungry. Eventually 2-3 different staff apologised in turn, plates, cutlery, napkins and water all suddenly appeared, and from then on the service was very good/attentive.
FOOD - EXCELLENT meat! Several different cuts of beef, lamb, chicken, chicken wings/hearts, etc., all deliciously seasoned and skilfully prepared. Great taste! If we were to rate Preto on meat alone, they would get 5-plus stars!!! And the meat kept coming, even our son couldn't keep up at one stage. If you are a meat lover, this is your place!
Unfortunately, the side dishes were sub-standard. Fries were tasteless and seemed mass/cheaply produced. Side "salad" was a few slices of cucumber/tomato and rocket, with no seasoning or dressing. A real let down. Before covid-19, there was a self-service starter/salad/side bar, but obviously now this is not in service.
VALUE - Reasonable, just over £100 for 3, with a bottle of wine, soft drinks and one dessert - but this was AFTER the £30 EOTHO deduction.
SUMMARY - GOOD overall and an excellent choice for meat lovers. But PRETO - please improve the quality of your fries and side dishes!
HOT TIP - Definitely try a bottle of the Beefsteak Club Malbec Mendoza – it really does complement the steaks!
It was my first time going to this style of restaurant, and I can’t wait to go back! The food was delicious and the staff friendly, we had the voucher for £10 off and I felt bad using them as the quality and quantity of food was great. It’s perfect for someone like me that can never decide what I want from the menu, I could have a little bit (or a lot!!) of everything!
Very enjoyable meal, food was great ! Friendly staff and good service.
They were great, good food and excellent service. Would highly recommend.
Hope you are well.
We have been there last Sunday, as they still offering the 50% eat out to help out, however when we arrived at home and my partner show me the bill, they took the full payment without any discount applied.
Fantastic place to celebrate any occasions.
Staff makes you feel welcome from the moment you step in.
Had a great time at Preto. Would definitely go again. Plenty of lovely fresh food. Staff were attentive, quick. All had masks on throughout.
Very good experience in general
Food was good (especially if you like meat)... service was slow - but we were in no hurry!
Preto Kingston never lets us down! Food is always fantastic, fresh and delicious. Can never fault the service as everyone is always very friendly and attentive. Delicious range of meats to enjoy from and even with implementing new social distancing measure re: the buffet (you now order it from a menu but it is is still unlimited) everything is still high quality. It's a must-eat spot in Kingston and totally worth the price.
Excellent and really good value for the money a little hard to hear the waitress through the mark but she was brilliant
Had booking for 12.30 outside he said sorry not available I insisted because I’d purposely booked this for the last warm day before the cold sets in he did make space but said we would be better of inside for the food which defeated the object even though people behind us were all eating so we stayed outside it took 30 min before our drinks turned up and an hour and ten min before we were given plates and cutlery then they came and gave us our first cuts of meat but we had no chips veg or salad so meat on its own the chips etc arrived then more meat came about 5 min later then they kept coming with meat but veg and chips now stone cold asked for some condiments but they never turned up asked for bill waited 10 min then gave up and went in. It was 50% of so we only had to basically pay for drinks we may have just been unlucky because we’d nearly finished and people sat behind us and were served instantly and a friend said it was brilliant the week before but it did spoil the treat for my partner
I love Preto Kingston, so far the best Preto I've been in London. Great food, great courtyard, excellent customer service.
The food choice and variety were not the best.. too many typical Brazilian dishes missing on the menu on a Sunday for lunch!
I also didn’t appreciate they charged me 17% table service!!! Way too much!!!!! They don’t apply the eat out help scheme to the kids menu... that’s a let down too!
Very good restaurant. Fresh food, lots of meat served on the table and friendly staff.
The meat was delicious, service from waiters a bit slow but the guys serving the meat was outstanding.
Very clean and the side orders was very nice too.
The meat offered was lovely. Choice of salad and cold dishes disappointing. Outside tables where very shabby and needed replacing.
Over service was very good.
Food delicious but drinks very slow to come out. Staff lovely and food delicious
I have an amazing time and food very tasty and delicious and also worth for the money. I will visit more and recommend all my family and friend to visit Preto Restaurant.
Meat was nice but all extras were absolutely terrible shocking service good job I had a discount code cause the the 56 pound bill was disgusting
We was waiting ages for them to bring our sides and we was only brought four meats in the space of two hours!!!!!! two of them was the same meat
