    The food was amazing, with the exception of the Parmesan pork and beef ribs (both were dry). Everything else, however was outstanding. My 5 year-old even asked for seconds of the chicken hearts! The pineapple was a favorite and the cut and tenderness of the meats was the real hit. Service was too-notch with attentive servers always around when you needed them.

    My family and friends, a group of 12, made reservations to celebrate my graduation from UCF and were greeted when we entered and our table was ready when we arrived. The food options are amazing and everything is cooked deliciously! There is so much meat and options to choose from. We all left very happy and stuffed! I can't wait to go again! Our waitress was wonderful and made the night a perfect ending to our celebration.

    An experience not to be missed. For one sum, you can sample from 14 different kinds of meats until you pop...or until you cry uncle.....they will keep coming at you...cooked and seasoned to perfection and cut right at your table. The "buffet" items are just for veggies and salads, but why bother? The only issue I had with this place is that it is so loud inside because the restaurant is so crowded, it is hard to hear yourself think, let alone talk to someone without shouting.

    1st experience at a Brazilian Steakhouse. Group of 5. Food was flavorful and exotic. We tried everything. Our waiter was phenomenal. Checked on us often amd kept the caiparinhas coming. Even the manager came to chat with us about the World Cup. Memorable experience to say the least. We left there feeling like friends and left a hefty tip. Can't wait to come back on our next trip.

    The buffet (10.99) the meats and buffet (29.99) has a bigger selection then any Brazillion resturant I've been to. I don't eat the meats just the bar. Ive been to several brazillian resturant and they have the best prices, the tastiest food, and a bigger bar selection. My family love meats. The meats they are fresh, tender, and tasty. If you have a vegetarian in your family, they will have lot to choose from as well. This is the best a most cost efficient Brazillian Resturant for family. Kids I believe are 10.99. Best to make reservation. They are busy, friendly, and fast.,

    Not the most appealing interior however the food and service was wonderful. Some of the sides are a little different than I am used to however I'm sure that is because they are Brazilian style side dishes that I typically do not come across. All of the meats that were brought out for the "Brazilian Experience" were amazing. One guest that typically does not eat anything exotic found this food quite delicious.

    My boyfriend and I enjoy going to Brazilian steakhouses quite often and we are used to a more upscale atmosphere, especially with a high price. This was a loud, overly busy place. I would not consider this place "fine dining" or "romantic" by any means. The server was brand new, tried to go off of a "script" after we had already told her what we would like. We were her first table, and she was very attentive, but quickly got overwhelmed when she was seated with 3 other tables and then a party of 10. She had forgotten all about us and we had to be checked out by another server.

    Let me first say. The various cuts of delicious meat just keep coming and coming. Our server, David, was friendly, attentive and chatty. I appreciated the service, the atmosphere and the selection of grilled food including the pineapple. I wish there were a couple more side dishes from Brasil to sample. Yes, I know it is a STEAKHOUSE. For the price, Cafe Minero is an enjoyable experience as a Brasilian themed steakhouse. And you can practice speaking Portuguese.

    I went with a small group, service was excellent, food was very good (the cuts of beef were cooked perfectly, and very well seasoned) but if you are looking for romance or a great view, go elsewhere. Right on a main road, lots of traffic, next to a minimall. But, parking is easy! The amount of food for the price ($29 for the buffet with table carved meats) is fantastic; I have been to Brazilian steakhouses before where the price was much higher. Overall, very good food ( except for the limited green salad options), great price.

  • Less Expensive Brasilian Steakhouse
    dennisthefoodie
    Dined on 6/16/2013
    Lets start off by saying that this restaurant is a less expensive alternate for other Brasilian/Portugese churrascarias/steakhouses (ie. Fago de Chao or Texas de Brasil). Spent 29.99 USD/person for the "Brasilian Experience" vs 45.00 USD/per person at former identified establishments. You will find the same meats as most Brasilian churrascarias; the quality of the meat and flavor was not all bad, and almost to par with other high end churrascarias. The difference is open-bar "finger-food" concept. Although there is a variety at Cafe Mineiro, the food and presentation of the open-bar presents a more "home-cooked" style of food. The ambience and overall appearance presents the restaurant as a family restaurant. Overall, good restaurant.
