My B&B recommended this place and I must say it was a fabulous recommendation. When we arrived the place was so packed with locals, we had to wait about 10 mins for a table. We ordered the Feijoada and a beer. The feijoada was magnificent, all the flavors were on point. It was filling and freakin delish. To add to... More

We really enjoyed the atmosphere in Bar do Mineiro. So relaxed and chilled. Great place for food and drinks. The staff are great and although it might not look like much when you walk past it really is worth a visit. Try the fried fish, so fresh and great value. So good we went back 3 times.

This is a very typical local bar in Rio, with local rough food. Don't expect glamour at all. It's a place where locals go drink beer or capirinha standing outside of the bar while waiting for a table. Well-served food with an excelent cost benefit. The Feijoada is fantastic and the Carne-seca com abobora (dry meat with pumpkin) is amazing.... More

Great if you want to try feijoada - which you really should. The type of place locals go to, definitely not a tourist trap.

This is a fantastic place to visit, hidden away but worth the trek. Atmosphere is fantastic, staff very friendly and the food amazing. Prices are pretty good too, well worth the visit.

After walking up the steep hill from the metro we were ready for a meal which we had been recommended by a guy that runs food tours. When we first saw the restaurant we nearly didn't go in as only one other couple was in there. Very happy we did end up going in as it was such a memorable... More

Bar Mineiro is in the heart of Santa Teresa. It was founded in 1992, but looks and feels older. It’s a small local bar/boteca (they only sell bottled beer or spirits nothing on tap so no Chopp) The seating area “restaurant” is pretty basic, tables and chairs crammed together, but customers don’t come here for a haute cuisine experience, nor...

If you want something fancy and trendy, go back to NYC. Mineiro is a local bar with tram memorabilia and chairs and tables so close to each other, your neighbouring diners' conversation may become your own. Small but full of life, it's a great place to live it up like the locals!

Thanks to our private guide, Vincente, we had one of the most memorable lunches!!!!! This restaurant is definitely "local", only a few foreigners (like us Americans!) It is crowded, we did wait outside and have the local Antarctic beer (which was great fun, too) before we were seated. The tables are long, close to each other, and seat about 8... More
