Delightful restaurant, but be warned it is in the far end of Pampulha and a good half hour away from the centre of town. It is, however, a delightful drive, and you can see a lot of the Niemeyer architecture as you as you drive round the scenic lake. The food is typical Minas food and is delicious. Most portions serve two people, we had a couple of starters, the linguica( sausages) was fabulous and ordered a dish for one which was too much for the two of us. Free coffee and slices of cake was a nice added extra.

If you look for the best mineiro food, this is your spot. Chef Nelsa Trombino runs a remarkable restaurant with the right atmosphere. It may be a little crowded on sundays and hollidays, but if you choose to go, be prepared for a little wait. It is better to reserve. It is a good place to go when you visit "Lagoa da Pampulha", Mineirão, Casa do Baile, Zoo and so on. It is not cheap, but worth it, a little tricky to find by yourself, but very well known.

Located in a former house in a residential neighbourhood this restaurant is a little far from BH downtown, the place is huge with hundreds of tables, the service is lazy and impersonal, the food is just ok and, yes, it is in the pricey side indeed. Dont expect to find the famous and original food from Minas Gerais like "leitão a pururuca" unless you are in a large group and order in advance (more than 6 hours), I think I will prefer Dona Lucinha next time that is also pricey but closer and with much better food.
