This is a typical "mineira" food place. We spent almost 3 hours at this place and attention was great. Luciano (Head waiter) treated us like royalty.

This restaurant is famous in Bh but i have some doubt. They start with bringing you a sausage which will be destroy your stomach. Then all the food is a buffet, like all you can eat, so if you are hungry you could be satisfied...but if you search quality it is not the best option. Even the dessert have no... More

If you are looking for "mineairo cuisine" this is the place. The buffet is offered at fixed price and the choice of food is really great. It is tasty, full of flavor, typical local dishes. The selection of sweets is also greta. Wine would go with this food, but this is problem everywhere in Brazil, either not good list, either... More

We went with our group and had great time. The buffet was very good. Loved the desserts. When visiting Minas Gerais, you will want to try the local cuisine at its best. The food in Minas Gerais is great.

This is a down to earth restaurant which doesn't pretend to offer fine dining. The food is good home cooking from the region of Minas Gerais - a style which is heavy and solid (so not to everyone's taste) and full of flavour. The choice of wine is very limited but it goes well with the food. Don't eat a... More

The Minas Gerais cuisine is famous in Brazil for its taste, tradition, ways of cooking chicken and pork, beans plates that are celestial and regional sweets that everybody adores. Dona Lucinha has always a place where you could taste the best of it. With two addresses in Belo Horizonte and one in São Paulo, it would show the guest the... More

I just love to go back to this place. Great selection of "Mineira Kitchen". You will fall in love with "Tutu de Feijao com Linguica". Service could be better.

Very good restaurant. It's a buffet with all sorts of regional food (galinha caipira, frango ao molho pardo, feijoada, pão de queijo, feijão tropeiro, linguiça, canjiquinha, just to nem a few) with reasonable price. The "feijoada" was amazing. It's simple, bur tasty. No frills. Deserts were included and the cocada (coconut sweet) was delicious. Service was very good. The restaurant... More

This was the first restaurant in Belo Horizonte to offer the real typical food of Minas Gerais. The two exisying restauants in Belo Horizonte are great. I once went to Dona Lucinha in Sao Paulo but it do not equal the ones in Belo Hoprizonte.

Food was just OK (warm and flat), worse than other "comida mineira" restaurants in Belo Horizonte or even in Sao Paulo. Service was nice, though. At about 40 USD per person, there are better options. Unfortunately, it seems that the glorious days that gained fame to this restaurant are gone. Not recommended.
