This restaurant is very traditional in Novo Hamburgo. With more than 60 years of history, it offer a menu plenty of different plates of beef. Very well prepared and the service is also excellent. Many of waiters work there from a long time. If you want to eat a good beef in Novo Hamburgo, this is your restaurant.

Although a bit pricey, the food here is amazing. All meat lovers should come by here. My personal favorites are: feijão mexido (thick black beans paste), polenta, and bife à milanesa,

Not so good for the price you pay. Also it's always busy and the wait is long. There are much better places and less expensive for the same type of food.

for bulky eaters, they have big size dishes, however, as I heard recently, not exactly economic. Meat is usually soft and well done. side dishes carefully produced in a kind of german-brazilian countryside culture
