The food is good really good, but too pricey for what it offers. They have too few options of foods there. There's a shame because the kind of food presented "Comida mineira" is so great and they didn't explore it well enough.

Great place with no luxuries but with a great cuisine from the region, buffet style but with a great service. Different but worth it.

If you want to have a traditional Brazilian meal from Minas gerais without being robbed on the price, and being in a very typical/touristic place, this is the right restaurant. You have a large buffet, from where you can eat, and taste different flavors from Minas Gerais. Sadly the cachaça menu is very short for a restaurant of this region

Our guide book advised this is the one place we should eat in BH so we did. Literally dozens of dishes to choose from buffet style but most were quite similar- in look at least. Everything we ate tasted fine- but nothing to rave about. Give desserts a miss though!

This is a typical "mineira" food place. We spent almost 3 hours at this place and attention was great. Luciano (Head waiter) treated us like royalty.

This restaurant is famous in Bh but i have some doubt. They start with bringing you a sausage which will be destroy your stomach. Then all the food is a buffet, like all you can eat, so if you are hungry you could be satisfied...but if you search quality it is not the best option. Even the dessert have no... More

If you are looking for "mineairo cuisine" this is the place. The buffet is offered at fixed price and the choice of food is really great. It is tasty, full of flavor, typical local dishes. The selection of sweets is also greta. Wine would go with this food, but this is problem everywhere in Brazil, either not good list, either... More

We went with our group and had great time. The buffet was very good. Loved the desserts. When visiting Minas Gerais, you will want to try the local cuisine at its best. The food in Minas Gerais is great.

This is a down to earth restaurant which doesn't pretend to offer fine dining. The food is good home cooking from the region of Minas Gerais - a style which is heavy and solid (so not to everyone's taste) and full of flavour. The choice of wine is very limited but it goes well with the food. Don't eat a... More

The Minas Gerais cuisine is famous in Brazil for its taste, tradition, ways of cooking chicken and pork, beans plates that are celestial and regional sweets that everybody adores. Dona Lucinha has always a place where you could taste the best of it. With two addresses in Belo Horizonte and one in São Paulo, it would show the guest the... More
