A little bit off the beaten path from the main square but what a find! Local food and delicious. Buffet style so even when busy you get to help yourself. Well worth the visit. Enjoy!

Stopped here during a tour of Ouro Preto and it had a great selection available and all of good quality. Great atmosphere with locals and tourists. The buffet selection was extensive, including the sweets.

The place is very nice. Good decoration in a nice building. The food is typical "mineira". it is a self service, so that you can try whatever you like. The local beer is quite good. Quite expensive, though.

The food is great [regional food] and the restaurant's old building is charming. It is strongly recommended that one going to this restaurant go by taxi because the parking area is nice to get in but very dificult to drive out.

This large and welcoming restaurant above a jewelry store has won numerous awards for its regional dishes like tutu, feijão tropeiro, and frango com quiabo. The portions are generous and the restaurant often gets crowded, try to sit by the windows with a view of the street below!

Just go there and take time to enjoy it! You will find several option on a nice buffet! Do not forget to bargain and get a discount if you're with a local guide or accommodated on a Hotel nearby.
