The food was good. I have been to other Brazillian Steakhouses and may have been a little spoiled. No complaints though, service was great.

This is the Texas Roadhouse version of Brazilian Rodizio Steakhouse. Large selection. Great prices. Look and feel of a corporate chain.

Previous reviews looked like this would be a good choice for dinner while on vacation in Orlando. It started out well with a friendly server who explained the choices and we chose the Rodizio experience. However, we were disappointed when the meats were served. This is a steakhouse and the beef selections were the most disappointing. They arrived from raw to overcooked and tasteless, to tough. Definitely not what we had hoped for at $29.95 each. The best choices were the sausage and the Brazilian beer.

We had the buffet experience and it was amazing. The steak was juicy, the sides were always warm and replenished and their cocada and bananada for dessert are amazing! Plus, the waiters are always helpful, conversational and nice!

Café Mineiro Brazilian Restaurant is a casual, well-priced dining experience for those who like or wish to experience the Rodizio meal---heaven for meat lovers! Although the building was not purpose built for a Brazilian Rodizio restaurant, they have adapted nicely. One portion of the building is a bar, and the remainder of the building hosts the salad and dessert bar, hot entrées and side dish bar, and the seating area. Diners selecting the full Rodizio experience can help themselves to salad bar items and accompaniments such as black or pinto beans and rice, fried plantains, fried fish, etc. Upon seating, all diners are provided a green/red table service indicator---when ready for one of the roving servers to offer you one of the 12 skewers of grilled meat show the "green side" (yes, please) or when pausing between courses, show the "red" (not now) side. The various grilled meats are presented by continuously circulating servers who will slice a portion of your desired meat. At the conclusion of your meal, they will offer slices of cinnamon grilled pineapple from a skewered whole pineapple. Additional dessert choices are available for an additional cost. As of 8/11/2017 the price for the full 12-meat Rodizio meal is $29.95 per person and includes unlimited salads and accompaniments and Rodizio meats! Come hungry! Wait staff service for cocktails, clean plates, water, etc. seems exceptional!

It was OK. Had the rodizio. No Rice or beans. Just meat. Much of the same meat over and over. It was OK. Maybe next time another place. Would I go back. I guess but certainly wasn't the best.

The service was friendly and fast. Unfortunately, that is the only positive. The most expensive option with the 12 meats is what we chose, the meat quality was not that great at all. At one point or another all 3 of us had to spit out a piece into our napkin. There is no filet cut of meat either by the way. If you've never been to a Brazilian steak house then this may be a good one to start at. This way you can work your way up to a really good option. Also, they say there is a dessert "bar" but it's just a couple of puddings and watermelon. At the end of the day, it's about 20 bucks cheaper than the nicer Brazilian steakhouse in town...but sometimes it is true and you do get what you pay for, or sadly less.

The staff was very friendly when we arrived, we had reservations so there was no wait. However, it took a while to get the bottle of wine we ordered. The restaurant was pretty cramped, not romantic or private at all. Food was good but not amazing. Meats were extremely salty.

first time in a Brazilian Steakhouse. Had a great time, the place was clean, a little dark to my taste but still comfortable. The service was super, everybody had a smile and the waitress explained the choices. I was not too impressed by the buffet and sides items, if you are not used to Latin food might have a different perspective. The meats were really good, very tasty and good variety. The waitress said they serve up to 14 different kind of meats, we didn't count but there were plenty and the servers came by pretty often. In general I think is was a good deal for the price.

Roger was our main waiter, excellent service, the best we've had in a long while. Everyone was extremely friendly and exceeding in giving us a great Brazilian experience. We have been to many Brazilian restaurants in Portugal and Sao Paulo this was very comparable. Make sure you do the whole experience, it is well worth the money. Will definately return!!!

We tried to be cheap and spend less for a Brazilian Steakhouse experience and we got what we paid for. A supposed 14 meat course which chicken hearts and grilled pineapple were included as one of the "14" meat selections was very disappointing. You cant get anything rare and it was overall dry and plain. Restaurant looked like a Mexican restaurant and the large tables are literally folding party tables with a table cloth thrown over it. Very limited sides selection and they charge $5.99/lb for food waste. On the positive side, the service was excellent and we never waited for a refill. The best part about this place was the complimentary espresso at the end of the meal. Overall, save your $29.99 and put it towards Fogo De Chao, its more expensive but I've never had a bad experience at Fogo.

I wanted to try something different on the last night of vacation, and this was perfect! The food was terrific--even the $16.95 buffet was loaded with selections--and the service was impeccable. Roger was a charming and attentive server. We already decided to make this a vacation tradition!

This is a more casual atmosphere compared to the other Brazilian steakhouses we've been to, and it was great. A soccer game was on TV so they offered free beers, though I just asked for iced tea instead and they complied. I don't even try the other buffet items as I came here for the Meats!

They claim to serve 14 types of meat, though they had a smaller selection of beef items, lacking the ribeye and filet mignon right off the bat. But the picanha was delicious and worth the meal for me. If you didn't want to wait for the gauchos to bring your favorite around, there is a window by the buffet (manned by the chef who cooks the meat) where you can ask him to cut you a portion.

Prices are $30 for dinner and $25 for lunch, and our dinner was for a special occasion with a LivingSocial coupon that shaved off the cost.

Would highly recommend for carnivores!

This was my first trip to a Brazilian steakhouse and it was phenomenal. The entire staff is devoted to making sure you get the most out of your visit and their service is impeccable. The price is extremely reasonable compared to newer, trendier Brazilian steakhouse chains and the quality and variety of the food from start to finish was just outstanding. I travel to Orlando for work once a year and this is now my favorite place I've EVER eaten at in this city. Love, love, love and will be back every trip from now on.

I was referred to Cafe Mineiro by a Brazilian Co-worker as a place to go if you want to experience rodizio style buffet and Brazilian cut meats without spending the usual $45. I went with friends and and it was my first time there too, so it made it even better. I was so happy with all the meats. The best part though was the Grilled Pineapple. It was delicious, especially if you get the top piece with the carmelized sugar. I would definitely suggest going there for lunch, but on a Saturday or Sunday (not for a light lunch).

Make sure to ask for the meats you like the best, they will bring it out for you. They will even go as far as making it for you if they don't have it on the grill at the moment.

We were a party of 4 to celebrate my cousins birthday. We were seated at a reasonable time but waited at the table for about 10 minutes for our server to get our drink order. My cousin asked for 3 different drinks and there were not available. His wife asked for a mojito and it was not available. They have a full bar! How can it not be available. So they asked for 2 bud light drafts. The server who's demeanor was one of very uninterested explained the process of the meal finally took the order which was 4 of the $29 dollars buffets left the table and never pointed or explained where the salad bar was or how do we get plates etc... She was just not in to it. She asked for the temperatures of the meats to be served and we said medium and the all came well done. Only once came at the right temperature once I personally asked one of the guys to please bring medium cooked meat. The meat was decent but the food bar was so uncomfortable and the variety was average at best. Once we were done wit the meal the server took a long tome to come around and when she did never offered dessert nor coffee. We had to ask her any desserts? She then said we have such and such. I was just done and wanted the bill so we could leave. When she brought the bill I noticed that the bill was $161 and I gave her a 10% discount card that was given to us and was one of the reasons we went there. However i could not figure our what happened as all we had was 2 bud lights a glass of wine and 3 buffets. Well she came back and now that bill was down to $147 with the discount. So I look at the detail and to make my night worse there was a gratuity of $20 added to my bill! I would have never tipped her $20 as her service was not attentive at all. I just paid and left as I just wanted out of there. We live here in Orlando and go out to dinner quite often to local restaurants. I can honestly say that I will never visit that restaurant again.
