I was trying to reduce my actual daily meat consume...then I had to travel to Brazil. Like the common diet - it has always to start on the following monday - also my sacrifice has been postponed.

Not for vegetarians but if you love meat it is tasty, with quick service and comfortable and clean dining area.

Good food including meat and starters. The service is quick. The restaurant is clean but without charm.

I ate may way across Brazil at these barbecues during the world and this was the best but most expensive. The meat offerings and salad bar were 102 reals from memory but the water was quite expensive and the bills for me alone came to 135 euros. The meat quality and service was second to none.

The restaurant has different rooms for meetings and small conferences. Before the beginning, small portions of different kinds of meats and good variety of fruit juices and beverages are served. The salads and the steaks are great! Polite staff, good deserts also.

This was a great experience for me, a first time visitor to Belo Horizonte. I have been to similar restaurants in Argentina but not in Brazil. The salad bar was amazing and the meat which kept coming (one uses a red and green marker to say if you want more or not), was excellent. The atmosphere was jolly. It helped... More

Fogo is great, but I've eaten at this location for the last ten years and it is always amazing. There was a way a meat was previously that is no longer served, yet they brought it to our table within ten minutes. Going beyond expectations. Highly recommend!

The taxi driver recommended this restaurant, and he was right, it is wonderful. First it was packed, we had a 45 minute wait, but it was raining so we sat at the outside (covered) tables and waited our turn. The food was amazing, as most Churrasquerias in Brazil, but my friend and I only had dinner, no dessert and no... More
