Nothing wrong about this place but nothing great idea. The service was good, the food average. Choice of typical Brazilian food on a big buffet, only one fish and loads of starch and meat, not untypical for the srea

Everything was good, not execptional, but good enough to anyone try once! Good atmosphere and service. Do not forget to try the pork with "rapadura" sauce ... something new and unique at this place.

Typical brazilian buffet with Mineiras specialties. Stuff pretty good but not excellent. Personnel nice but, beware, nobody speaks English.

Everything about this restaurant is charming, the surroundings, the staff, the atmosphere. Very family orientated (we went on a Sunday afternoon) and the Caipirinhas were excellent !!

First, the restaurant itself is not new for me. There is one in my home town, Sao Paulo. Minas Gerais culinary isn´t new for me either, as my... More

The place supposed to be the best place for trying the traditional "Comida Mineria". The food is too seasoned for my taste; however, the desserts and the free homemade liquor shoots compensate for it.

Went for lunch with understanding that is supposedly a popular spot. Seated promptly in the upstairs room. No AC but this seems to be common in this region. Buffet style. None of the wait staff could speak any sort of broken English or Spanish. Surprised since it was full of foreigners for the World Cup. At least there were signs... More
