Description: Brazil is the largest and most populous country in South America. Almost as if to complement its exciting geographical contrasts, from wetlands to tropical forest to beaches, it also boasts an incredible multi-ethnic mix, which is mirrored in its cuisine.The indigenous Tupi Indians had already mastered the art of preserving meats through smoking and drying by the time the Portuguese colonised Brazil in 1533. They had developed the use and processing of Corn (in particular Corn Porridge) as well as the use of many root vegetables such as sweet potato and manioc (also known as yucca or cassava ).Not only did the Portuguese bring with them their own culinary customs (heavily influenced by 300 years of Moorish occupation) but they also imported slaves from West Africa with their cooking traditions. The use of coconut milk, peppers and dende (palm oil) are amongst the many ideas introduced by the slaves, all of which are prevalent in Brazilian cooking.Many more immigrants followed later, including Western Europeans, peoples from the Middle East and Asia, but unlike the Portuguese and African traditions, their culinary contributions were absorbed rather than evolved.As with many other large countries, Brazilian cuisine has its regional differences, although staple ingredients throughout Brazil today include beans, rice and manioc meal. To the North (includes Amazonas, Rondônia and Pará), the diet is mainly fish, root vegetables and fruit as opposed to the Southeast where the use of corn, pork and beans is traditional. Our restaurant is based in a small baroque city of Ouro Preto (from Portuguese, Black Gold) is a city in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, a former colonial mining town located in the Serra do Espinhaço mountains and designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO because of its outstanding Baroque architecture. A different and enjoyable option for a FINE DINING Brazilian Restaurant. A cozy atmosphere for pleasant moments with friends and partners. Excellent food and proud to show our diverse culinary dishes to europeans.

Waited months to get in, understandable for a busy restaurant, but the food was mediocre and the service disinterested, the wines are so over priced it was ridiculous, it took an eternity to get fed, just like getting a table. Never again.

Visited last Saturday week with my wife. Having booked in March and having to wait until August for a Saturday night sitting, expectations were high. The #1 ranking on tripadvisor also set the bar high! The food was lovingly prepared and presented but for me, few, if any, of the dishes, were at the level I was expecting given the... More

this was a rare night out for husband and I as we have young kids. Fantastic service and lovely food. Felt very relaxed and welcomed. Excellent attention to detail and with only 1 sitting a night and 2 waiters per table, we felt special and cared for. ironically the only let down for me was the waiter's very poor English... More

The concept is interesting - a seven course tasting menu - so you don't get to chose your own food. The food was very tasty and different. The waiting staff were very helpful in explaining the dishes. I couldn't fault the food on any level. However, €35 for cheapest bottle of wine was very expensive. And cocktails were €13 -... More

I came here with my boyfriend using the voucher of 100 euro for two. Everything about the place/meal was an experience. The waiters are highly knowledgeable and professional. Every course was excellent and was explained in detail. I am vegetarian and a separate menu was provided for me with no trouble. The voucher stated that it was a 7 course... More

I bought one of the vouchers for my husbands birthday back in January but we were unable to get a Saturday night booking until late August! WOW was it worth the wait. Everything was simply perfect. When we first sat down I was a little conscious of how "cosy" it was, it is on the small side but once you... More
