Last day in Portugal we wanted to take the chance for a last real Churrascaria, which we love from brazilian restaurants, especially because of the excellent quality level. After some time to find the restaurant in the special Cais de Gaia area for restaurants and not on the quayside (we followed too long the decribtion of Tripadvisor instead looking on... More

The location is on the Douro, the rodizio is about 20€ (until you are completely full) and the staff is friendly. Moreover there is live music almost every evening. Must go if you are in Porto

We had a really great time at Mineirao a few days ago for a work team dinner. There were a number of different cuts of beef along with pork and sausages - very good quality although I did feel that there could have been more variation. In previous rodizios I've been to there is the inclusion of a salad bar... More

The place is great. We tried their rodizio two days in a row. We got rice, beans, bread and different kinds of salad served at our table for free, and then they came with so many delicious kinds of meat and an amazing grilled pineapple. We ate until we were completely full, and we even got refill on the rice... More

The restaurant it self once going was almost empty except for one table. The starters was very good and you could get full only from eating that. The meat it self comes non stop with constantly getting refills until you are explode. Deseret was also very nice. The amount of money paid was low and justified. Towards the end of... More

Good business dinner with traditional Brazilian meat, Sausages, vegetables and the rest that follows this type of food. Very good red wine and good service brings this to 3 points from me. Atmosphere was OK and location is quite good, just over the bridge and close to Doro. But there are more sophisticated Brazilian restaurants in Porto

We really enjoyed our lunch on the terrace of this restaurant. We had the full rodizio: the food was plentiful and of good quality, for a reasonable price. The service was very good, notably Nelson, the main waiter on the terrace who was great fun as well as the other staff who dropped by with the great skewers or meat... More

Really tasteful food with a really low price. For only 10€ per person we got: 6 different types of meat (1 chicken, 2 pork, 3 beef), salad, fries, fried banana, onion ring, rice & beans, bread, appetizers and ananas at the end. Friendly service and wonderful river view. For sure an experience to repeat!

This is a Brazilian restaurant by the Douro River. It serves mainly Rodizio, but it also has some other great dish. The service is very good, and the food is delicious. Going here is an unforgettable experience.

We had lunch there, friendly service and yummie food. We took the whole deal for 20€ per Person. I think that is quite ok. You get good meat and can even ask for certain kind of meat to be served several times while you skip others. Can recommend the restaurant
