Large place nearby Pampulha lake; use a cab, a map or GPS to get there. Good place to take children and enjoy the great typical dishes from Minas Gerais.

The food is amazing, not only by their flavors and taste but also by the way they are prepared and presented. You can see and delight with the whole process. And don't miss the amazing dessert table! Everything in a very impressive country scenic environment.

This was my second time here and I am still very much pleased. Hostess was very accommodating to our requests and service was fast and great. Menu is not too long and it doesn't have to! Most plates are big enough for sharing (2 dishes are enough for 4 people, usually) and very tasty. Love the fact they have free... More

English guy with Brazilian gf and friends. The meat was superb! There was so much food too (most say serves 2). There were a few flies but that can't be helped. The staff did everything possible to make it comfortable (insect repellent candles, move us inside etc). Highly recommended.

There were many flies at this venue. It would be picturesque, however the insects make it impossible to enjoy.

Dear Dave, Thank you for your appreciation. Our restaurant has a natural environment, which may sometimes attract insects. Some devices are avaiable to avoid the insects at the tables, and we are sorry that a waiter could not provide you. We invite you to come back and, having any issue, talk to our manager.

The environment is amazing, it makes you feel very comfortable and the food is just amazing, but don't forget to save some space in your stomach for the desert, you must have it..

A bit pricey if you go with small groups, but not so much if you visit with a large group and have a family-style meal. It's very far from the city, but a nice place to have lunch if you are visiting pampulha. It has a good selection of dishes, and they are all very good.

Thank John D
