The tables look out onto trees and this beautiful town.The service was formal and professional. We went there twice. The food was well prepared, but not very exciting. The trout with giant capers was very good, as were the beef dishes. The osso buco was both hard and fatty at the same time. But do say yes if they offer... More

This place is near the Sao Francisco de Assis church and thus near the city center. It makes a great place for lunch after seeing that side of the city. If you go, go to the top floor. You'll have a nice breeze and can see far over the city. The food for the four of us was good, although... More

A pleasant building and well-situated, Bene da Flauta sits alongside the Sao Francisco church in Ouro Preto's centre. The upper storey has a panoramic view of the surrounding baroque architecture, from modest residences to the spectacle of the Igreja de São Francisco de Assis. It's a light and airy setting. A reasonable Brazilian and international menu - French onion soup,... More

Really nice place to eat. Try and get a table on the top floor. It has great views of the city. Good international menu and attentive staff who know how to serve and stay out of the way. Fish was really good and well prepared and cooked. Interesting art on the walls made for pleasant atmosphere. Don't miss out.

We ended up eating here three times, in part because this was one of the few restaurants that was not closed on either Sunday or Monday. We were never disappointed in either the food or the service, and enjoyed it a lot. The restaurant is located in the central area and has great views from some of the tables over... More

We had read very good ratings. We were really disappointed. The place is pleasant enough but the food was at best average for a high price.

This is one of the best restaurants I've been to. As good as the best French or Belgians. Service was perfect. Wine list, despite short, had ample choices of quality and price. The main course is the king. Quality of beef and lamb they serve is one of the best in Brazil. We had dinner two nights in a row.... More

Pleasant place with a good localization, near to the central square. The menu has good options, including tipical regional food. Prices are fair. The service is attentive. I consider a very good option for a meal in Ouro Preto, and could rate it as one of the top five restaurants of the town.
