Apocalipse

Reviewed By PaulistaRiodeJaneiro - Rio de Janeiro

This is the best "kilo" restaurant in town! It stays on the first floor of one of those old houses, on top of a pharmacy/drugstore (!!!), facing the main square of the Mercado dos Tropeiros. You cannot see it! The view from the tables by the windows is great! The food has a great variety: salads, meat, fish, typical local dishes, fruits, sweets and even a very good local "cachaça", "cafezinho" & teas. All on a basis help yourself, passing by the scale after you made your choice of food. The little glass of "cachaça", "cafezinho" & teas are free.

Recanto do Antonio

We are always in Diamantina, shopping, banking, visiting and often eat lunch here with Antonio and Jackie. Good, hearty, honest food always well-prepared, always the same quality.

Grupiara

Reviewed By Kelci_rb - Winter Park, Florida

Great typical mineiro food. Most of the plates are priced and big enough for 3 people. My favorite is arroz loulena, angu serenada, and the file parmigiana. Really, every thing on the menu is delicious. I just suggest you don't order the lasagna, it's the only dish I was ever disappointed with.
Great outside atmosphere, sometimes food takes awhile to arrive so you should always order a beer and relax. My favorite place to eat in Diamantina! Also, if you just want to hangout order a tabua. It's basically a hot plate with grilled meats and french fries or macaxeira fries on top! Great food and big enough for a group of at least 4 people. I've eaten it with as many as 8 people.

Caipirao

Reviewed By PaulistaRiodeJaneiro - Rio de Janeiro

If you are in a hurry: this "kilo" restaurant will do..........the buffet is not praticularly rich, but has a a reasonable variety of salads, fruits, sweets and plenty of local food. It has also some barbecue meat. If you are not familiar with the local food, sometimes it is difficult to choose what to put in your dish......The place is a bit dark & the tables are one very close to the other.

O Garimpeiro

Reviewed By Kelci_rb - Winter Park, Florida

Unless you're staying at the pousada, I wouldn't make the effort to eat here. The traditional mineira food served during the lunch buffet was pretty normal, but over-priced for the quality in my opinion. Frango a quiabo (chicken and okra) and frango ao molho pardo (chicken in a blood sauce) were served that day. I've heard really great things about the restaurant, so it's very likely that the a la carte menu is better. I really did enjoy the dessert area, especially the homemade dolce de leite. But, if you want to try traditional food from the region, another restaurante closer to the center of the city would be better quality for the price of R$55 a person.

Livraria Cafe Espaco B

Reviewed By PaulistaRiodeJaneiro - Rio de Janeiro

For a snack or a quick meal, anytime, they open long hours, except on Sundays: this is the place!
The place is very cosy: a café in a bookstore! They have small & big wooden tables, all surrounded by bookselves. A great varity of drinks, coffees, teas, & soft drinks. The brownie & the petit gateau are delicious. The have also bowls of soup, pizzas, pastas & sandwiches. The service is very attentive, though a bit slow for those used to big cities. You can stay there for hours Reading a book and sipping your tea/coffee. A great place to take a pause in the very heart of Diamantina!

Deguste

Reviewed By Kelci_rb - Winter Park, Florida

I recommend ordering a crepe. Ive had the pasta before, it's okay.... but expensive for the quality of the food. Of course the crepes aren't genuine crepes, but brazilianizied, yet still good. I prefer the chicken or beef (carne) crepes, I'd avoid the shrimp (camarão) crepes becauze it isnt good quality seafood. There's always excellent service here, keep in mind theyre closed on mondays :)

Restaurante Do Raimundo Sem Braco

Reviewed By Luishida - Sao Paulo, SP

O lugar é lindo pois as mesas estão dispersas em uma praça e sob a sombra das árvores. A comida é bem simples e caseira ; já o atendimento é formidável pois a simplicidade unida com a rusticidade do local e com atendimento caloroso e amigável dos donos torna o local mais bonito do que já é. O preço é justo tanto para a comida quanto para a bebida.
