Great food but very pricey for Brazil

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.

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.

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!

Porcao is one of the best meat houses in Rio. For some reasons they might think that Belo Horizonte people are tasteless and don't enjoy good food. That's why having tried it several times i verified that the food they serve is not aligned whith Porcao's standards. May be that restaurant is a franchisee not cery much scrutinized by the... More

The meat is simply great, with lots of different options. The price is high, undeniable fact, but if this is not a big problem for you, the place is a right choice to be delighted by the experience of tasting the most delicious meat in town. Besides, the staff is very kind and professional.

The meat at this Churrasicaria was average, certainly not the quality encountered at places like Montana's in Sao Paulo. The real disappointment was the fish, sushi and salad bar, little selection, food certainly was sitting out for many hours or from the day before, it was tastless and old. The ambiance was nice, but certainly not worth the visit. When... More

Sometimes the service is not 100% but, the food is always 110%, lots of kinds of meats and cuts, sushi, cheese and salads. The best experience for the Brazilian Churrasco
