“Hearty, filling home-style cooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

I was surprised to find such a pleasant restaurant in the middle of the Minas countryside. The decor is rustic but not scabby and you have the choice to sit out on a semi-open varanda which we did because it was a nice day. The food was great. There's a huge choice. We had the picanha with tutu de feijão and couve - all good and tonnes of it. It's not cheap but also not extortionate. Fun - I will certainly go back to try the costela no bafo. Watch out for the opening times. Not open Mon-Wed and only until 14.30 for lunch on Thursdays and Fridays. All day Saturday but only lunch on Sunday. Check before you go.

“good food, nothing outstanding”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

went there for a sunday lunch with family who lives in Pouso Alegre. Salads are good, good variety of dishes, even for vegetarians. The house special is the costela, the price is little bit high for what is offered, the side dishes are very good. The decor is nice, only things from the countryside.
