What better to share with friends than good food. Or, what better place to find new friends than at a meal. Went to Xopotó for lunch with some business friends. Were not looking for some posh "place-to-be-seen" but wanted just good food and if possible local stuff. So to Xopotó we went. They serve the kitchen of Minas Gerais or... More

This is a traditional place where you can taste the best of Minas Gerais cuisine! This is where the best "torresmo" (crispy pork skin chips) is served, as well as "os Tropeiros", "Mineiro Light", "Mexidao", "Feijoada"... Just relax and trust on manager's suggestion.

Very good restaurant, excellent cost-benefit, gentle and cozy attendance. The restaurant deserves a visit, but need to be really hungry to enjoy the journey. FYI, for a lunch (2 person) I asked for 1/2 portion, plus an "entrada". Cachaça menu is astonishing too, with more of 50 different bottle to choose: try one shot before the end of your meal... More

If you would like to experience cuisine from Minas Gerais is a very friendly, homey atmosphere, Xopotó is your destination. It is the only restaurant in Sao Paulo where I know all the waiters by name! The food is fantastic too. If there are only two of you, order half a portion (at 60% of the regular price)---it will be... More

A nice and casual place to have a traditional brazilian meal, tipical from the state of Minas Gerais. The food is excellent and the place is simple but very very nice, even in cold or hot weather. I surely recommend this place.

Traditional food style from the State of Minas Gerais, it's a very nice place to have a casual meal with friends, especially with warm weather, when you can choose a table outside, either at the front or especially at the back. Serving excellent caipirinhas and cold beer, a relaxed lunch in a sunny day is memorable!
