Feijoada was amazing, the portions are giantic as everywhere in Brazil. The thing that makes this place different are the clients: young people, animated, loud. There were some tourists inside, but so where the locals. Perfect blend.

Excellent feijoada and pasteis de feijao. Other reviews mention Mineiro has become a tourist trap but it was recommended to us by Rio natives and we sat next to ex-pats from Australia who go twice a week. Tip - you have to put your name on the list for a table, nobody will approach you when it's busy. If there... More

I know many people have said that it had become a tourist trap and that it's not as great as before, but since it was our first time in Rio and in this restaurant, we can't really compare. All I know is that we had a delicious feijoada and the price didn't seem insanely high to us! The staff wasn't... More

Bar do Mineiro has become a tourist trap. It used to be a decent place, but nowadays charges very high prices and its service is terrible. Located in the bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa, it seems to attract only unaware tourists and people from other neighborhoods. The locals NEVER go to Mineiro, opting instead for the much nicer Armazen Sao... More

This used to be a great little place to take friends visiting Rio. It's in a fun, artsy part of town and the food used to never disappoint. However, over the past year they have inflated their prices and reduced their portion size. They've made it into so many guide books and so figured out they could rip people off... More

Loved the Rabda! the place does look like it could do with a good clean but I guess that's part of its caricature. Shall always go back to get my fix for Rabada though and its pretty fair priced for today's Rio. Always finish off the meal with a shot of cachaca and a nice stroll back down the hill... More

The feijoada was good and the portions were huge-one order is truly enough for 2 people. We were there during the World Cup so maybe my experience was skewed but I wasn't overly impressed. The place was packed with tourists and I found the prices really high. R$50 for the feijoada. I'm sure this was once a really special authentic... More

Our guide took us to Bar do Mineiro when we requested to taste the best feijoada in Rio, and we were not disappointed. There is absolutely nothing fancy about this bar, but it serves great, honest food. We went there at slightly before noon on a Tuesday and it was not crowded at all. Definitely our favorite place for feijoada... More

Great little bar with tiled floors in the Santa Teresa district. Lots of hipster types about, but don't let that put you off. The owner knows his business inside out and, despite the seemingly busy bar, had our drinks sorted in an instant with minimal eye contact! Always a sign of a good bar. Food is also on offer, and...

Great place for tourists. Atop the famous Santa Teresa neighborhood, this friendly bar is packed most of the time, so expect to wait a while. Great food options and they have a full menu in English.
