I ordered a medium-rare Bife the Chorizo and got two tiny slices of overly done filet instead. Price is not justified either by service nor by food quality

This is a modern, refined restaurant with an eye for detail. The patio is wonderful for beer/wine with a few appetizers. The menu was exciting and the food lived up to expectations. There is a cool vibe, and a young hip crowd. Fun.

It's a busy restaurant, recommended by locals, so worth making a reservation. They were quick with the wine list (a good selection but not cheap) but had run out of the wine we chose; our second choice came quickly and was good. We were not offered a menu (maybe they didn't want us to feel rushed) but once we had... More

The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere and during my visit in a Thursday night it was a very friendly place. The food was honest that means good but not a gourmet experience. The "prato da boa lembrança" option was below my expectations but several starts were very nice including its "dobradinha".If you are looking a nice place to talk... More

A favorite indeed in Belo Horizonte. Go early or reserve otherwise you may not get a table. I went with a Brazilan colleague and it is one of the preferred restaurants to take his wife. A place for the beautiful people so dress smart.

Enjoyed the food but we arrived on a busy night and found ourselves in an ugly room at the back whose major function seemed to be the route to the men's washroom.

I could stay there forever! That's really what I mean. The place is so charming, that one simply don't want to leave. From starters to dessert, everything was perfect. The wine list is a separate attraction. It is a little bit expensive and employees are also a little arrogant, but as long as they keep doing their job well and... More
