Restaurant details
Reviewed February 26, 2013

This place is delicious and authentic in a day-to-day Brazilian kind of way. A simple "por kilo" restaurant where you pay by the weight of what you eat (also oddly informative if you've never weighed your food). The beans are awesome, the churrasco (grilled meats) are traditional: juicy and authentic. The fare is not particularly "mineiro" other than perhaps the desserts, which we did not try. The main buffet, however, is worth every gram. We were there on a Sunday afternoon, and they had a guy with a guitar singing MPB classics--made for the perfect Brazilian Sunday lunch--que saudades de casa...

Heads up: In this review, five stars does NOT mean linen tablecloths, a vintage wine cellar or a maitre d in a tux. It's a great place, anyway.
The tables are bare, the beer and wine are "bring your own" (but no corkage fee!), and everyone dresses very casually. Very.
Still, this is a terrific find in Newark. Superb Brazilian quasi-buffet - some vegetables and fish dishes on a traditional buffet table, but the best & freshest offerings are at the carving station. The sirloin was perfectly seasoned and tender, the bacon-wrapped chicken was splendid.
Most of all, the atmosphere was truly friendly. Again, this is NOT upper-crust in any way whatsoever - it is informal even by diner standards. The lighting is bright, there's plenty of noise and the decor is pretty much Uncle Guillermo's basement. But think of it as your favorite Uncle Guillermo -- the feeling we got on a recent visit was like being welcomed to a favorite uncle's home. Familiar with all those bogus "just ordinary folks enjoying a good time together" commercials by Olive Garden? Well, this place actually delivers that atmosphere - for real.
Great food, a terrific price and a warm welcome. NOT a place to bring a hot date, a business client or your prissy Aunt Edwina ... but otherwse, a fine stop for dinner in Newark.
