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.

Of the 50+ meals we had in as many restaurants all over Minas Gerais, this was, by far, the worst. We had better food in tiny wayside diners for R$9,90 each than in this place which cost us over R$100. There were only bones and fat, and everything was horribly greasy.

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.
