“Best "All you can eat" in Rio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

If you want to taste some really nice and traditional brazilian food this is the place to go. Most of their dishes are based in Minas Gerais's cuisine, which is a countryside city thats shows a lot what brazilian food is.
There are loads of good options there, try to take a look around the buffet first then choose what you want. Otherwise you will end up stuffed too quickly and still wishing you could have tried other things.
You pay around 35 reais and eat as much as you like, deserts are also included. The restaurant is very spacious and clean.

“Very nice restaurant !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

I like very much going to A Mineira. There is a great variety of things to eat and the food is excellent. It's ' an ' All You Can Eat' restaurant. Besides, it's typical from a region of Brazil - Minas Gerais.

It's very clean and the atmosphere is excellent as well.

I strongly recommend it.

I only have to advise people to avoid going there in the weekends as there are usually big lines to enter. But, if you go, try to arrive early there or make a reservation.

“Great value for money, excellent brazilian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Similar to Verano also in Botafogo, except that this is all you can eat. 30 BRL for all you can eat, including grill specialties and deserts and with so much variety is really great value for money.
The dishes were all excellent. Only the deserts could have had a greater cake selection (though there were other types of deserts too, Verano has better deserts overall)

I strongly recommend this for those who don't mind self-service and the fact that the atmosphere is nothing to write home about.

Service was very friendly and helpful, and some did speak English.
