Man! What wonderful food !!! On a vacation trip to Minas Gerais, we stopped in Nova Lima and went to lunch at Faz de Conta. The place looks like a large ranch, with rustic facilities, rough furniture, a few thatch huts, resembling a farmhouse. People eating and smiling all around while kids play as they were at home! Inside, immense... More

Great selection of food, local dishes, and lots of varieties of meats, vegetables, deserts etc. It is buffet but they also come around to your table with fresh choices. You cal also go to the grill and choose to have food prepared in front of you. It is a little expensive, 60 RS approximately for lunch compared to places where... More

I was introduced to Faz da Conta by my work colleagues when travelling in Belo Horizonte. We stopped for a relaxed lunch and this restaurant was amazing! The whole atmosphere is created before you walk in with the wooden facades and internally the décor matches and doesn't let you down. We where early and the place was still empty, but... More

This was a great place to experience a Minas Gerais ranch meal! This was buffet which, of course, features a lot of meat, but compared to a full-on Brazilian BBQ, this one wasn't all about meat, it was also about the wood-fire buffet and the very interesting Brazilian clay-pot cooked food. There were 2 or so buffet tables which featured... More

I ate lunch at this place twice during a recent trip. Both meals I hosted with large groups of business people. The restaurant is set up as a series of buffets each with a unique focus. The meat section was plentiful and echo dish was prepared beautifully. There are also excellent fish and vegetable dishes and a plentiful salad bar.... More

Great outdoor atmosphere in the typical Minas fashion. Tons of hot pots made out of rocks, filled with never ending food. A great family place since it has a huge playground for the kiddos.

It's a good restaurant of "comida mineira". You can eat how much you desire for a fixed price. There a lot of options of plates and finger foods. The desserts buffet is also well served. The better thing is you won't be surprised about the check.

Great restaurant! Don't eat breakfast before going there! The food is amazing for those who want to go local. It's far from city centre, but it's really worth a visit. You eat for hours, so bring friends and make it an experiment.
