Went here on a recommendation of a local who was originally from Brazil. So happy we went! Very good food and great service. An authentic Brazilian Steakhouse at a good price. Definitely on our list to visit again.
Service was excellent and the food was great. Price was cheaper then expected.
Absolutely a must-try if visiting the I-Drive attractions area! Went with my wife back in 2014 (my 1st Brazilian Steakhouse experience) and loved the it so much we went back 4 years later with the kiddos. The staff, just like the food, is awesome! I must also say that for it being a Brazilian Steakhouse, the prices and options are extremely reasonable.
Really really disappointed Marketing for this restaurant is false. There is not enough to choose and beside the meats were low quality. Only good there are the servers that’s it .. in the marketing said dessert are included on the buffet of $30 but not at all , you need to pay extra if you want dessert . Never ever again
Food was ok- salad bar could have been better.
Service was good and signature drink was yummy.
Absolutely loved the place. Great food for a greater price. Loved the service thanks to Junior....
We went for Valentines Day. It was not very busy. We were seated quickly. Nothing was bad, it just wasnt the best rodizio. Good service.
Food on the hot bar was cold. Hair found in the beans. We notified the manager and was told we would be getting a discount because of the hair... unfortunately, they did not honor the discount. Not worth the money you charge and the dining room is to tight.
Inexpensive cuts of meat served Brazilian style on International Drive Orlando
Very nice family run local spot, reasonable for a large group. Great food, our sever was fantastic
Todo muy bueno.rica comida.amable atencion y rapida.
Food variety and meat quality were poor. Chunks of not tender meats. The top sirloin was good. Very expensive for what we had. They offered 12 kind of meats with the Rodizio, but they didn't serve even 10. We had to ask for the lamb, and it was delivered only then with the excuse that people don't really ask for it. At the end the check came with a $30 tip already included. Will not repeat.
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.
Great service, decent food. Not much variety of meats, or sides.
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!
Best food and service. Much better than the more expensive chains.
Amazing meats and service. Ignore the Buffet!
We had a great Date Night tonight, as always the service was awesome and the food was top notch
I am a local and I keep braving the tourist traffic on I drive to frequent this place
Great service from all personnel, starting with the waitress and continuing with all the servers. Thanks!
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!
First time at a brazilian steakhouse and I was very pleased. Food was great especially all the options of steak. I would def recommend. Be ready to spend nice penny since food is unlimited.
Lovely food, excellent service and friendly attentive staff. A very enjoyable experience would definitely recommend.
Meeting friends here. We bought a Groupon and enjoyed a delicious dinner. Buffet foods were very good. I prefer my meats medium rare and they were booked to perfection. Will return on our next trip!!
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.
Waitress was nice and friendly , meat servers were slow and long wait times to come to table
A Great place to Dine in very Family Oriented! It stays open late night when most restaurant are already closed!
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.
Food and service was really good, ladies room was horrible.
We were pleasantly surprised! The food and service were exceptional and we loved the atmosphere as well. We look forward to dining there again!!!
This place is awesome! I've been a couple times now and we plan to bring our friends!
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!
We were a party of 5 and all had different tastes in food. All of us gave this place 5 stars and a big thumb's up. Busy, but not a problem.
The service was excellent and every server was courteous. When we asked our server what he recommended for dessert items off the buffet he brought them back to the table for us.
