“Always good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

A favorite indeed in Belo Horizonte. Go early or reserve otherwise you may not get a table.
I went with a Brazilan colleague and it is one of the preferred restaurants to take his wife. A place for the beautiful people so dress smart.

“Make a Reservation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Enjoyed the food but we arrived on a busy night and found ourselves in an ugly room at the back whose major function seemed to be the route to the men's washroom.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

I could stay there forever! That's really what I mean. The place is so charming, that one simply don't want to leave.
From starters to dessert, everything was perfect. The wine list is a separate attraction.
It is a little bit expensive and employees are also a little arrogant, but as long as they keep doing their job well and don't irritate guests, no problem.

“For the price, the experience could be better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Don't get me wrong, the food is very good. The atmosphere is nice.
What brings the rating down is the overall service.
Depending on the night, the place can get pretty crowded. They will seat you though. The main room gets pretty tight. I've been there on a slow night (just our party and one other group in the place) and on a crowded night. The speed of the wait staff was the same. SLOW. At least they are consistent.
Like in any restaurant in Brazil, the bill MUST be requested. They will leave you alone otherwise.
If you have the time to wait for service, to have your order taken and to get your bill, this is the place to go. Again, great food, slow service.
