The best restaurant in Cuiaba, by far. A restautant that lives with passion for food and wine, a mixture of foodcultures and a hunger for perfection. An oasis in the far west. Actually, the only restaurant if you go for taste. Thank God for Mahalo.

Way above my expectations. For sure, it's the best restaurant in town; chef's creativity is experienced on every single choice from the menu. If you're looking for a classy spot, don't think twice.

The staff was super friendly and no one seemed to mind our less than slick looks. The food was very good and definitely value for money. We... More

My wife had an appetizer selection of four tapioca cakes two of which were topped with shrimp and the other two with a meat sauce; we called them Brazilian crostini and both versions were delicious. I had the mozzarella di bufula salad and the cheese was excellent as were the savory greens. Our only... More

From the moment I´ve walked in till we left it was a great experience starting with the hostess, the waiter was also polite and the food was also speechless. The only point I would like to call was the price. It is good, but if you planning to go with friends for buzz or great wine, you could have a... More

When I visit Cuiaba on business I always schedule a dinner at "Mahalo". The first time i went there I was very surprised by both the place and the quality of the food. It was totally unexpected - especially for a restaurant with a Hawaiian name. All of the dishes that I have sampled have been excellent, as has been... More
