I had the most excellent beef cooked fresh before my eyes. I loved the variety offered in the buffet. As a tourist I wished the dishes had name tags so I could have known what I was eating, but I tried all of it anyways and it was all great. Highly recommend.

I had a delicious lunch with a large group of friends in À Mineira. The restaurant is all-you-can-eat with a huge self-service buffet offering several entrees that are supposedly from Minas Gerais state. I particularly enjoyed the beef tongue and the ox tail. Okra is also great. One can find lots of salads and, oddly, some sushi rolls that look... More

You get typical food from Minas Gerais, but also from other brazilian states. They offer sushi and churrasco. It's an 2all-you-can-eat"-restaurant and the price is really moderate at about 45 US$

Self service. However, the bowls and dishes are small. Therefore they are replaced all the time. If you wish to taste the flavors of Brazil, this is the place to go

Does this place REALLY NEED another 5 star review??? Probably not, but it is getting one anyway. High consistency of quality, popular so the volume keeps things rotating on the buffet and so Fresh! So much variety too. My GF is Minera and she says that this is the closest you can get in Rio to the Real Minera Deal!... More

A large restaurant offering an incredible number of choices among family-style dishes, including lots of salads and stews and a barbecue. The food is on the basic side, as you would expect, but tasty and well prepared. Don't forget to pour yourself a small cachaca from the barrel located to the right of the main buffet.

My family decided to come here based on Tripadvisor reviews and are so glad we did! This buffet completely surpassed my expectations! The "home style" food was all delicious and had such a huge variety! I honestly enjoyed every single thing I ate. My entire family liked this place (including my picky mom). Service was great too. I couldn't believe... More
