A somewhat simple place in the style of old Minas Gerais colonial houses, this restaurant offers a great buffet of typical (and well prepared) Mineiro cuisine. Gorgeous food with the principal Mineiro dishes and sweets avaliable for your delight.

Brazilian country food, delicious & made to order in the moment; If you are trying to get to know more about Brazil, don't miss this place. Nice ambiance, friendly service... they'll tell you everything about the food and they'll warn you about the quantities. There is no luxury there, but you'll feel very comfortable and you won't forget that visit.

Do not go if you are on a calories diet. The traditional food from Minas Gerais state is all but gorgeous.

I have some friends that are from Minas Gerais, and they love comida mineira. On a recent visit to SP, they took me to this restaurant for lunch. The food was very good with the always excellent meat dishes that one expects in Brazil. The portions were ample, and very tasty.
