good old days

Where are the good old days when this place was the best in town? All was good from the breads to the deserts and the service Nowadays the place has lost its charm- and may be also the will to be excellent So it is just average. The terrace remains an attractive point.

It is a nice restaurant that serve a variety of Brazilian and international plates. I came back for more of an special cheese that they serve with the couvert. I had a nice fish with risotto. The caipirinhas (of many flavors) are nice !!! The baked Alaska was great !!!

Surprisingly, Belo Horizonte - off the beaten tourism track - does really well with its restaurants and food. My and my family really enjoyed this place. 2 different seating areas - one more formal, the other less formal but still stylish. The wine menu is very extensive and good and we all had great meals. My dad said the best... More

Excellent restaurant for lunch, dinner and even take a wine evening, as it has sidewalk tables and is a very quiet street. Excellent service, extensive wine list and delicious desserts. The cost is high, but worth it.

The food is pricy and very small portion. The waiters needs training, they were not polite. It is a normal food , nothing special or made in a different way.

Whenever we visit my wife's hometown of BH we try to make time for a visit to Favorita. Have never been disappointed. Always consistent. Portions are quite large, so easy to split an app or pasta course. Great wine list, but given the international depth certainly not a bargain. If you bring your own bottle corkage will set you back... More

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
