Great Brazilian Ranch Meal Experience

This was a great place to experience a Minas Gerais ranch meal! This was buffet which, of course, features a lot of meat, but compared to a full-on Brazilian BBQ, this one wasn't all about meat, it was also about the wood-fire buffet and the very interesting Brazilian clay-pot cooked food.

I ate lunch at this place twice during a recent trip. Both meals I hosted with large groups of business people. The restaurant is set up as a series of buffets each with a unique focus. The meat section was plentiful and echo dish was prepared beautifully. There are also excellent fish and vegetable dishes and a plentiful salad bar.... More

Great outdoor atmosphere in the typical Minas fashion. Tons of hot pots made out of rocks, filled with never ending food. A great family place since it has a huge playground for the kiddos.

It's a good restaurant of "comida mineira". You can eat how much you desire for a fixed price. There a lot of options of plates and finger foods. The desserts buffet is also well served. The better thing is you won't be surprised about the check.

Great restaurant! Don't eat breakfast before going there! The food is amazing for those who want to go local. It's far from city centre, but it's really worth a visit. You eat for hours, so bring friends and make it an experiment.

Regular price for all you can eat restaurant. Regular food. Loud and crowded. It's a fixed price doesn't matter how much you eat. After all its same price of better restaurants around. There is a big playground for kids, thought.
