The buffet expanded greatly between my two luncheons at Casa dos Contos ? the first in May 1998, the second in June 2008. There were, for example, many more salad makings and three (3) different bean dishes.

The 2008 price for the buffet was R$20 (about US$13) ? and well worth it.

The restaurant takes all major credit cards.

Favorite Dish: Roast chicken (I eat legs only) smothered with soupy beans.

Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Take the street to the right of the minerology museum; the restaurant is to the right and at the top of a steep hill about half-a-mile from the museum.
Price: US$11-20
