The lavish salad and vegetable selection could be a meal in itself. Then there is sashimi and sushi which is quite decently prepared. Not the best, but definitely above average and better than other places which are served buffet style. The beef and lamb barbecues are quite extensive. Some cuts such as the Picanha are better suited to the Brazilian... More

Laid back place with Brazilian flavor! Nice evening with friends . The place was full and we enjoyed the meats, from steak to ribs, great Carmenere wine from Chile, try Vinia Veramonte! Easy, relaxed atmosphere . We will be back!

Porcao is good option for have a Brazilian BBQ, but it is not great BBQ restaurant, quite pricey. The buffet is very good. The meats are good but they are better in some of the competitors. Noisy environment and the service needs improve.

One of the best all you can eat BBQ places in Brazil but it is a little snooty. The clientele are obviously the more privileged of BH, but this is understandable as the prices are high in Brazilian standards. Highly recommend for view, service and food.

Probably the best steakhouse brand in Brazil. The buffet was great and ranged from sushi to very fresh vegetables and greens, and obviously the steak selection was amazing. Bang for the buck, one of the best restaurants in Belo Horizonte!
