The local food is an important part of the history of Brazil . It is a typical Brazilian food, served in abundance and flavor. It is therefore need to be very hungry , and they shall be to you too much food even . There is Feijão Tropeiro (a tipical beans) and frango com quiabo.

This is an upscale restaurant for Brazilan standards with not so upscale prices. It is situated on tne first floor of a building; therefore you have to look for a single door which leads to a staircase. The waiters are attentive and courteous. The menu covers all (domestic) tastes. We had a window table but the view is very limited... More

Nice place, you can choose brazilian typical food of the Minas Gerais and other options. It is cheaper a dish for 2, than either one choose a dish. It is in the Historic Centre, near from Tiradentes square.

We came here for a late lunch after sightseeing all day, and it was great. The restaurant is big and beautiful, set on the top floor of one of the old colonial street-front houses. The menu is traditional Minas style food - meat, rice, beans - and was delicious. I can understand, however, how western taste might find it salty... More

The glowing reviews here are not justified. We ate in an nearly empty restaurant on a Saturday night (when other places were filled with locals) and were served salty, tasteless food with indifferent service. I was tempted to give it only one star but no one came down with food poisoning (which we had feared after we finished the meal).... More

Food is excellent but be prepared to go feeling very hungry. Sensibly they offer dishes for one or two people but four of us could have eaten the local equivalent of Coq au Vin, which was delicious. It was served with rice, green cabbage and mashed corn which I had never had but would again. To start we had Caldo... More

We had a wonderful meal in this restaurant. Service was excellent, the lighting was perfect and the views from the balcony were fab. The food was good quality, we ate chicken and salad. The portions were huge. He salad starter could have served two as the main! Come hungry!
