Amazing food but prices are steep

This is one of the restaurants meant for meat lovers. The array of meat served is unreal. But, the prices are steep for the juices or drinks served. It is definitely a place one should go if they want to try any kind of meat.

Cafeteria atmosphere, no music and tv's with rolling adverts. Salad and sushi buffet was ok. Cheap cuts of tough beef brought to the table. No variety. Desserts ok but charged apart. To top off a bad night we were charged to park our cars on their own car park! When we questioned this the miserable manager just shrugged his shoulders.... More

Beautiful newly renovated restaurant. Lovely views and nice ambiance. Great buffet with lots of variety including sushi! The main thing though is the barbecue. You get your accompaniments at the buffet - but servers continue to offer you and endless variety of meat carved right off the spit and onto your plate at the table. Come hungry and definitely not...

The lavish salad and vegetable selection could be a meal in itself. Then there is sashimi and sushi which is quite decently prepared. Not the best, but definitely above average and better than other places which are served buffet style. The beef and lamb barbecues are quite extensive. Some cuts such as the Picanha are better suited to the Brazilian... More

Laid back place with Brazilian flavor! Nice evening with friends . The place was full and we enjoyed the meats, from steak to ribs, great Carmenere wine from Chile, try Vinia Veramonte! Easy, relaxed atmosphere . We will be back!

Porcao is good option for have a Brazilian BBQ, but it is not great BBQ restaurant, quite pricey. The buffet is very good. The meats are good but they are better in some of the competitors. Noisy environment and the service needs improve.

One of the best all you can eat BBQ places in Brazil but it is a little snooty. The clientele are obviously the more privileged of BH, but this is understandable as the prices are high in Brazilian standards. Highly recommend for view, service and food.
