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.

I finally was able to return to Xapuri after seven long years and it still is my top pic for Minero cuisine in BH. The atmosphere is fantastic (often including the local monkeys), the food is incredible, and you are guaranteed to have a great time. Definitely worth it.

A simply meal costs around 100 reais and me and my friend have found HAIR inside the food. When we told the waiter, he didn't say a word to us. He simply ignored the comment... Despite of this, none of the waiters came to our table spontaneously, but we had to wait and try to find some of them free.... More

This place serves typical Minas food. It is excellent I really recommend the cachaca and the blood of the chicken. It's a bit in the pricey side but it's worth it.

Living in Belo, I have visited the Xapuri a few times over the years. Until today I haven´t quite got what makes people go there. The food itself is surely traditional from Minas but also plain and quite bold honnestly. Basically it is rice, pork and vegies sold at expensive prices. An absolute ripoff for me. Be aware there is... More
