“Best "cozinha mineira" in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Very good restaurant, excellent cost-benefit, gentle and cozy attendance. The restaurant deserves a visit, but need to be really hungry to enjoy the journey.
FYI, for a lunch (2 person) I asked for 1/2 portion, plus an "entrada".
Cachaça menu is astonishing too, with more of 50 different bottle to choose: try one shot before the end of your meal (and to digest the huge amount of food you will eat...).
Recommended!

“After 8 years in Sao Paulo, still my favorite restaurante!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

If you would like to experience cuisine from Minas Gerais is a very friendly, homey atmosphere, Xopotó is your destination. It is the only restaurant in Sao Paulo where I know all the waiters by name! The food is fantastic too. If there are only two of you, order half a portion (at 60% of the regular price)---it will be more than enough, unless you are a college football player from Oklahoma. Tell them William and Erika sent you! ;-)

“Very good brazilian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

A nice and casual place to have a traditional brazilian meal, tipical from the state of Minas Gerais. The food is excellent and the place is simple but very very nice, even in cold or hot weather. I surely recommend this place.

“For casual, relaxed meals with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

Traditional food style from the State of Minas Gerais, it's a very nice place to have a casual meal with friends, especially with warm weather, when you can choose a table outside, either at the front or especially at the back. Serving excellent caipirinhas and cold beer, a relaxed lunch in a sunny day is memorable!
