MInas is one of the best Brazillian BBQ places in Calgary. Tucked away in the Eau Claire market area, this place is a treat. Absolutely great side/salad bar (with an awesome ceviche and fantastic cheese buns) and lovely dessert bar. But let's be real -...More

Minas is my favorite Brazilian restaurant in Calgary. The rodizio is wonderful, but even if you just want to taste the traditional Brazilian food, it's still the best choice for buffet service. Plenty of hot food selection, sort of delicious salads and even some desserts...More

MINAS Brazilian Steakhouse is named after the southern Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, where executive chef and owner Jose Montes hails from. This state is known all over the country as the heart of the most authentic Brazilian cuisine, such as feijoada, pão de queijo, and feijão tropeiro. During a traditional dining experience at MINAS, the barbecue is served tableside on skewers, in the classic rodizio style by our passadores (carvers) and accompanied by the most traditional Brazilian dishes. MINAS provides great service by qualified and willing staff, presented in a lively ambience. We serve satisfying portions that never leave our guests hungry. Most of the food is cooked in our open kitchen (the latest trend in the dining experience) with high quality meats prepared fresh and in front of guests. Our Iguarías (hot and cold gourmet sides) offers tasty, instant, and varied options. We cook and serve in traditional dishes, such as handmade soap stone pots, brought from Ouro Preto in Minas Gerais. Chef Montes has brought his Brazilian pride, training, and generational knowledge of cuisine and barbecue right to downtown Calgary. Over the last 25 years, he has honed his skills in preparing high-quality meats and food in the traditional Brazilian style. He has successfully built the reputation of several restaurants in five different countries, on three different continents: Brazil, Japan, China, the United States, and Canada. He now uses that extensive experience at his own Brazilian restaurant.
