Restaurante Barao

Reviewed By John P - Brasilia

A traditional eatery in the town centre (just off the main plaza). Plenty of tables. Copious amounts of food quickly served by attentive old-boy waiters. Patronised by young and old alike. Relatively cheap. Why waste your money on a hamburger when you can eat properly for around the same price?

PICANHA NA TABUA

Mainly Beef

Reviewed By John P - Brasilia

I mentioned this in my crit of the Franca Tower Hotel. I go there every time I am in Franca (an uninspiring town, but great for shopping for top-class mens shoes in the factory outlets).Lively establishment, best get there early in the evening. Superb sliced picanha, huge caipirinhas, friendly staff, excellent live music by professional musicians. Decor reminds me of some of the places in New York´s village (Bob Dylan vintage). You will have a good meal here, plus an insight into what local Brazilians like doing in the evenings - eating, drinking, gossiping, flirting!!!

Nicanor

Reviewed By Laura N - Geneva, Switzerland

Have been there twice in a week. We didn't have any booking for the first time and it wasn't a problem, the staff was very nice. We ate some tapas in the first place with a good rosé wine and salmon pasta for the main menu.
Very nice and lovely, trendy place with beautiful people in Franca. Will go back there.

Reviewed By siqueirapaty - Varginha, MG

Um dos melhores restaurantes no estilo self-service que já visitei. Comida muito bem preparada, ambiente muito limpo e bem pensado, setorizado. Só é preciso chegar cedo, pois a casa fica muito cheia após o meio dia. Mas vale muito a pena. O preço é compatível com a qualidade. Nota mil!
