good choice if you like to eat a lot of meat

A nice restaurant in the center of Belo Horizonte, nice atmosphere and well furnished. They have a rich buffet for starters, clearly the main course is based on any kind of grilled meat. They bring meat until you say stop. Wine list is wide with special focus on south America wines, the... read more

Meats are above average, no doubt, and service proved efficient, considering that our was a 21 people party. However, prices are on the high side and the atmosphere was a bit too noisy. Fairly varied wine chart. Front door host was impatient, almost hostile.

After the previous night Dinner at Fago de Chao Sao Paulo being a disappointing one I still hoped for it to be a one off experience! But no it was a similar salad bar, lacking flavour and choice with only a couple of medicore sauces..... Okay the meats had to be better after all this restaurant was not as crowded... More

I visited the place last night as a solo woman. I was shown to my table and left there. This is where the problems began. I was given no instructions as to how to order. I was asked after 15 minutes what I would like to drink. After another 15 minutes I asked if I was suppose to just go... More

It's not that it's bad, but I think the place is overpriced for a barbecue place. The customer service is good.

The meet is excellent (pick out the ones you really like), the caipirinha is excellent and ample choice in wines. The choice of salads and appetizer food is very good. The service is outstanding - after only two or three serving the waiters remember the cooking you prefer for the meat. It is indeed the best place for meat in... More

I live in Belo Horizonte and this restaurant has the best barbecue there. It`s indicate for business meetings or when you receive people the another country, because it`s has a original barbecue and other brazilians food. The price is expensive, but the service and the food are amazing.
