Very good place with traditional local and authentic food from Goias which includes chicken pequi and many others. Taste like grandmother home with authentic wood oven and cooking. Service is great and the only thing I had to complain is that is too hot inside. Price is cheaper for what is served and decoration is nice. Don't forget to have... More

Second to none in regional food, especialized in Goias food: rice with pequi, jiló, quiabo salads, fish stews, beans with yuca flour. You can also taste local brewed liquor made from murici, pequi and buriti. Dessert buffet is included when meal is not by weight.

I've been there with my family and, although we are from the city, it surprised us with the typical flavours of the dishes we knew well. A huge variety of local food, keeping a high quality and a very pertinent décor. It's a little bit expensive though for a lunch, which makes it a special occasions place.
