From the moment I´ve walked in till we left it was a great experience starting with the hostess, the waiter was also polite and the food was also speechless. The only point I would like to call was the price. It is good, but if you planning to go with friends for buzz or great wine, you could have a... More

When I visit Cuiaba on business I always schedule a dinner at "Mahalo". The first time i went there I was very surprised by both the place and the quality of the food. It was totally unexpected - especially for a restaurant with a Hawaiian name. All of the dishes that I have sampled have been excellent, as has been... More

The name Mahalo means good luck and peace in Hawaii. This explains that the creative cusine is not always luky and that you are better served during lunch when they don't take big risks in inventing new dishes. We always had exellent lunch formula menus for lunch, but some desapointing to creative dishes for dinner. The buffet for Saturday's formula... More

Absolutely fantastic restaurant, well worthy of it's #1 rating. We ate here both nights we stayed in Cuiaba either side of a trip to the Pantanal. You are greeted by Marcelo who is a lovely guy, very welcoming and helpful when choosing your meal from the menu. The food is to die for, my girlfriend and I had 3 courses... More

Mahalo is ranked #1 in Cuiaba among restaurants, and it's really not hard to see why. We came to Mahalo the last evening before returning to Denmark. We'd been watching the World Cup for two weeks and decided that we wanted to end the experience on a high by eating at a spectacular restaurant. We arrived 30 minutes too early... More

We are here for the World Cup and read the reviews. Words cannot adequately describe the experience. We did not have reservations. It was June 11 the night before their valentines day. My husband called and this lovely woman said to come anyway even though they were booked. She said Marcelo would take care of us. My husbands luggage was... More
