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.

Incredible experience. The place is fantastic and service excellent. Fantastic Belo Horizonte view from the terrace. You will have the best meat in your life. All the cuts are fantastic! Try all you can! My favourite was the costela, absolutely fantastic. Not only Beef, also Lamb is excellent. Even dessert are great, Pichigato (I do not know how it is... More

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

They forgot what service is in a restaurant. It took more than 20 minutes to get a specific cut I was looking for. And very few trips of the waiters to the table to offer meat. At the end I asked for a dessert and it never arrived. At the moment of the check they were including the dessert and... More

Porcao is very good churrascaria but the one in Belo Horizonte is very special. The building is very rustic but very airy and spacious. If you are lucky and you sit by window then you will have breathtaking view of BH. Salad buffet has absolutely fantastic variety. All meats are OK but I was surprised that I had to specifically...

We've been there on a weekend evening, The valet took our car and we directly went to our table. We had a nice table with a lovely view on BH even without reservation. Service and food are very good, waiters come fast and over and over again, non stop until you can't take more! Plus, there's a rich entrées buffet... More
