The service was perfect and the food was really, really good. It's a typical local food, very tasty and well served. The price is ok.

I finally was able to return to Xapuri after seven long years and it still is my top pic for Minero cuisine in BH. The atmosphere is fantastic (often including the local monkeys), the food is incredible, and you are guaranteed to have a great time. Definitely worth it.

A simply meal costs around 100 reais and me and my friend have found HAIR inside the food. When we told the waiter, he didn't say a word to us. He simply ignored the comment... Despite of this, none of the waiters came to our table spontaneously, but we had to wait and try to find some of them free.... More

This place serves typical Minas food. It is excellent I really recommend the cachaca and the blood of the chicken. It's a bit in the pricey side but it's worth it.

Living in Belo, I have visited the Xapuri a few times over the years. Until today I haven´t quite got what makes people go there. The food itself is surely traditional from Minas but also plain and quite bold honnestly. Basically it is rice, pork and vegies sold at expensive prices. An absolute ripoff for me. Be aware there is... More

If you are a visitor to Belo Horizonte this is a place to go for a nice lunch. You will have a chance to experience the best "Comida Mineira" restaurant of Belo Horizonte. I takes about 30 minutes from downtow and you should combine with a visit to Lagoa da Pampulha area and the Soccer Stadium Minerao.

My husband and I visit Xapuri every time we go back to Belo Horizonte. The atmosphere is amazing and so is the food. You can easily spend a whole afternoon there - eating, drinking and spending time together. The little "souvenir" shop is quite expensive but has really nice things. As much as I as a non-local love this place,... More

Highlight of our trip to Belo!! We were privileged to be taken for lunch at this beautiful outdoor restaurant by our local hosts. Restaurant is a wonderfully hidden gem located not too far from the zoo. It is a large facility with stunning scenery, lots of greenery and large tables located throughout. We went during the lunch hour on a... More
