The meat was fatty and rare and had no flavor. We tried to get a discount and they charged us full price even though we didn’t eat anything there. Don’t waste your time!!!!!!!!

The food was amazing, our server Lucas was also great. However the place was a bit too busy considering COVID-19, I would suggest regulating the flow, making sure we walk in just one direction. Too many people - not enough social distancing.

Waiter was wonderful. Every bit of food we tried on the Rodizio was awful. Dry. No flavor. Overcooked anywhere from well done to burnt.


Lots of bad food is still bad food. It doesn’t matter how much you try to shovel down people’s throats.

They charge you $5.99 lb for leftover food. However some of their ateak cuts are all fat and none edible. Need better quality of meat.

Every time I come to Orlando I eat here. The atmosphere is so nice the waiters are so friendly the food is absolutely delicious. I always suggest making a reservation instead of just showing up because I made a reservation and was walked right in even though there was a line of people waiting

The service and food was very exceptional. My family enjoyed the atmosphere and all the staff were friendly. This is one of the best family restaurants I ever have visited. We were visiting Orlando on vacation from Alabama. My family loved it so much we ate there twice of the three nights we ate out. The table side service is awesome and I would highly recommend!

Not very Good. The only way to get the different meat selections brought and cut at your table , you have to get the buffet .... They should do the same for people that don't the buffet.

As Brazilian steakhouses go the food was quite tasty however they could expand on their menu and offer more food items to select from.

Food was bad to say the least, service was slow I guess because the time we got there, it felt like a school dinner rather than a restaurant, meat was dispensed thru a small window on a corner of the almost empty buffet table, the ice cream popsicles where outside and next thing you know they removed it and when we asked for it they brought it but charged $4 each ( this item was part of the buffet bar ) why the charge !??? In any case will be out last and only visit to this place

Hello Navil, I'm so sorry for your experience, can you tell us where was the location that you visited? Just to inform you, we sold the restaurant near Florida Mall and it now has another name and another owner. I hope you can give another chance. Thank you for your understanding and I hope your experience was not at Cafe Mineiro Brazilian Steakhouse at International Drive that is where we are located. Best Regards, Cafe Mineiro

This place was absolutely amazing. I would recommend to anyone that’s wants to do the experience Brazilian. I went for my sons birthday and they let him eat free and free dessert. The food was absolutely delicious. The meats was so good and there hot food and salad bar was so good. I can not speak enough of this place. The atmosphere was so family and friendly.

The food was delicious as usual. Waitress was nice but seemed confused. Took a while to get our checks ready. The other waiter that helped her was great and helped ease the situation. There was live Brazilian music so possibly could’ve been the reason for some confusion. We were a group of 9. Overall we enjoyed the food and music.

We have gone to many Brazilian steakhouses. This one was just definitely not our favorite. The only thing that made this good was our server was excellent. For the $29.95 don’t expect a great cut of meat. If we were to return we would do the 16.95 buffet that had a good amount of stuff. I don’t want to sound like I’m bashing them because the food on the buffet wasn’t bad. We would return but not do the rodizo experience.

This place was expensive for sup par food! Save your money and go to the other place Texas da Brazil! FYI moscato is supposed to be served cold! Don’t bring it to my table hot and then put it on ice! I wasted the entire bottle! And why ask what temperature I like my steak, if everything is well done! I will never go here again!

We went to Cafe Mineiro for Valentine's Day when we were staying in the area. It was busy and noisy, but that was no problem for us. We were promptly seated and served drinks. We got one full Rodizio with all the meats and one with just the salad bar, which also includes a few meats on the salad bar itself. The choices weren't as plentiful as some of the higher-end Brazilian buffets, but given the relatively low price, there were plenty of good options. We almost got overwhelmed at the pace of the fresh-cooked meats being delivered to our table. Even when the red (no more meat now, thanks) was turned up, the meat servers came to our table anyway and offered us more meat. The food was piling up on the plate so fast we just had to say, " no thanks, not right now". Some of the meats were perfect. Others were too well-done. But for the money, this place was well worth the money. We would go back again if we have the opportunity.

Don't expect the same quality as Texas de Brazil or Fogo. The buffet is lacking, and beef quality isn't as good. Was there with my 4 kids, so for us this was fine at half the price. It was an okay meal. Despite this, our server was amazingly attentive. Ask to sit in the back, it's roomier and less crowded at the buffet area. 3 stars for sure.

A good value, but not anywhere the experience of the more upscale versions, e.g,. Fogo. Serving staff was very friendly and accommodating, but the density of the buffet areas (particularly for the meats) was very tight and uncomfortable.

Good was ok. All meat tasted a bit freeze burnt. Buffet was good and had options but was all a bit too bland. Wendy the waitress was excellent though. Not bad value as one of the cheapest in the area, but food quality let it down somewhat.

Services was great. Meats were good but a few were over-done so drier than preferred. Pineapple was amazing! And they need to put mash potatoes in the hot bar!!

The buffet items were kinda gross. They told us they had six kinds of neat one of which was filet. The asked us how we liked our nest cooked, to which we answered med rare. All of the meat was over cooked except for one slice of sirloin and we never saw any filet. I probably wouldn’t go back.
