“Excellent”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

You cannot ask for more: a picturesque, cozy restaurant located just off the main road to Cunha, with a small number tables so that service is quite personal, and great food!

Coração da Terra (Heart of the land in a free translation) specializes in Shitake and other mushrooms. We tried a pasta with shitake and a risotto with wild rice, shitake and shimeji. Both where perfect. The appetizer - both with mushrooms as the central piece were simply delicious.

Just be warned: the place takes a radical approach to what it offers: no soft drinks, no meat, no wifi - just the superb food. And bring money, cards do not work here.

Thank you very much for your review! We believe that mushrooms can be the central piece of a dish because their flavours and textures are quite rich, so we tried this "radical" aproach and we found it worked very well, even if in Brazil, mushrooms are not as popular as in other countries. Wifi and soft drinks we found everywhere, we want to give a special experience to our commensal, and we believe that it can only be reached if we "disconect".
