Brazilian steakhouses outside Brazil is a big deal. We usually over-expect-frustrate in the end. I had lunch there with my family and was busy. Although the options of meat is not good the food itself was really tasting (typically from “comida mineira” ). Friendly Staff...More

I have spent more than a year in Brazil, so I am spoiled and my expectations are very high. Despite that, the meat was very well done, some nice options. Salad bar was pretty small, and the meat types was very limited. The staff was...More

Description
MINAS Brazilian Steakhouse is named after the southern Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, where executive chef and owner Jose Montes hails from. This state is known all over the country as the heart of the most authentic Brazilian cuisine, such as feijoada, pão de queijo, and feijão tropeiro. During a traditional dining experience at MINAS, the barbecue is served tableside on skewers, in the classic rodizio style by our passadores (carvers) and accompanied by the most traditional Brazilian dishes. MINAS provides great service by qualified and willing staff, presented in a lively ambience. We serve satisfying portions that never leave our guests hungry. Most of the food is cooked in our open kitchen (the latest trend in the dining experience) with high quality meats prepared fresh and in front of guests. Our Iguarías (hot and cold gourmet sides) offers tasty, instant, and varied options. We cook and serve in traditional dishes, such as handmade soap stone pots, brought from Ouro Preto in Minas Gerais. Chef Montes has brought his Brazilian pride, training, and generational knowledge of cuisine and barbecue right to downtown Calgary. Over the last 25 years, he has honed his skills in preparing high-quality meats and food in the traditional Brazilian style. He has successfully built the reputation of several restaurants in five different countries, on three different continents: Brazil, Japan, China, the United States, and Canada. He now uses that extensive experience at his own Brazilian restaurant.
