We really enjoyed this restaurant. It has a great atmosphere and a beautiful dining room. The food could be improved though. I can "home cook"'and I expect something a bit more exciting for these prices. My lamb tagine was tasty but it was only a tagine! There is no finesse to the cooking and would be gastro pub standard in... More

This restaurant has candles around the tables and it is very cozy, they have a different menu, which look like a comic book, they serve a traditional food which is the Angola Chicken, my husband had the traditional one and I had the one with the pasta that was simply delicious. Their starter is also delicious!

Great food, can't complain about that. Nice atmosphere. But the service was one of the worst I have had in any restaurant in Brazil. Slow, unfriendly service. The waiters attend to the people they think are paying the most. If you don't look like you fit in with the patrons, you're treated like it. At the end, we waited for... More

A really nice location, very good food. More elaborate than the comida mineras. But more expensive as well. We were there in the winter, so eating Inside was quite pleasant but there are outdoor tables that must be fantastic in warmer weather. A very good experience altogether.

We enjoyed our dinner at this beautiful spot but found it to be quite pricey. So be prepared! The food is created with a great deal of care. We especially enjoyed the soups.

Nice ambiance, great food, good wines. The waiters are very solicitous. The pasta is homemade. The guinea fowl is deliciious. It's worth a visit.

Lovely atmosphere with an exceptional chef who cares bout her food. You can share an entree as portions are large. We loved the pasta with fish one night and the pintada in red wine the next night. The salmon carpaccio had no flavor however. Nice wine choices. Very sophisticated restaurant given the size of Tiradentes.

We walked in later on at night after consulting our guide. It has a special atmosphere, cosy with very careful decoration. The service was fair. The food was excellent. All in all, we had a great time.

This restaurant is a must in Tiradentes land of many good restaurants. They have options for kids and treatment is very friendly. Nice atmosphere in the historical center of Tiradentes. The menu is a book with lots of information. Prices are high but it was worth it.
