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.

Nice decoration. Good service but bad food at high prices. The ossobuco was shoe leather in a thin tasteless sauce. The polenta had no flavor . The fried pork was nicely platted but was dry and no flavor again.

Very cozy place. Friendly staff. Many wine options of the menu were not available. A little frustrating. We had the "cage free" chicken. A little stiff, as mentioned in the menu but very tasty. Food was very good but not the best. Fried "goiabada" is a very good desert.

The food is excellent, the place is wonderful, and you pay for it. The menu is worth reading, as it is full of stories and jokes.

Food was excellent, the decor is very nice, very modern and trendy, however the complete lack of service, care or attention is just SO bad, I mean, worse than terrible, and made it a completely unpleasant experience. TERRIBLE! TERRIBLE TERRIBLE! Firstly, after being seated, we were ignored. I tried to get a waiters attention, calling with a hand, then using... More

A delightful and unique setting, a delightful and unique menu design, and a delightful and unique meal. We ordered foie gras to start, and it was the best I've had... anywhere! Our main dishes were good, but then dessert was a cheese ice cream with warm dolce de leite. Again... delightful and unique! Only try Tragaluz if you are open... More

They have excellent food in general. Steaks, Brazilian Picadinho, cubes of filet with spices, pasta, chicken d´ Angola, black rice,... but you can´t miss the Guava dessert with cheese, named Goiabada Frita.
