Given that eating out is promoted as being one of Tiradentes’ great attractions, it’s surprising that few of the restaurants are particularly good. Viradas do Largo, at Rua do Moinho 11, is considered the best in town for comida mineira but the food and general ambience are hardly exceptional, although the price, around R$50 for a meal for two, is good. Four kilometres from the centre along the Estrada Bichinho, amidst beautiful countryside, is the Pau de Angu, a wonderful rustic restaurant serving mineiro food at its best. Tragaluz, at Rua Direita 52, makes a brave – and sometimes successful – attempt at modernizing comida mineira by producing lighter dishes; expect to pay around R$70 per person.
