The food is wonderful! Because has a large buffet and is all you cant eat! The delicious food from Minas Gerais, in Brasil, is considered the best brazilian food. The variety of plates and the taste of the food are unforgetable! If you come to Brazil, you must go there!

It isnt very expensive and you can eat as much as you can and stay as long as you can. Awesome for birthday parties and if you bring 5 more people with you on your birthday, they you... More

"Mineira" food is the Brazilian equivalent of a homestyle (country) meal, where there are lots of tasty options, including a variety of soups, salads, meats, and side dishes. Everything that I tried from the all-you-can-eat buffet at A Mineira was excellent, and the staff is eager to please, without becoming a distraction (as is sometimes the case at a Churrascaria-steak...

If food where the only issue in a restaurant, it would be excellent. But it is not comfortable, it is too crowded, it is too noisy and the service is not efficient . Anyway, it is where you can taste the real food from Minas Gerais in Niteroi.

Not a bad restaurant, although not on the same all you can eat level as Verdana (another all you can eat meat place just up the road). A Mineira however is cheaper. For 38 Real per person, you can easily leave feeling very satisfied. The food is changed regular, and the meat is cooked right in front of you. Great... More

The diner pays a fixed price for the buffet, and cachaça, extra for beer and soft drinks. A little pricey, but the food is abundant and of high quality. The service is unusually good for a restaurant of this type. The two-beer offer on weeknights is good for beer drinkers. Near a lively little square with several restaurants, next door... More

This is an all you can eat buffet. It has from regional food to barbecue and appetizers. It fits everyone's taste. It's a huge place so on busy days it gets really noisy, but I have celebrated my last 2 bdays there and I just love it! :)

The restaurant is a all-can-you-eat and includes appetizers and desserts. Food from many parts of Brasil. Worth the visit.
