Bené da Flauta

International in Ouro Preto

Occupying two levels of a gorgeous colonial sobrado (mansion) just below Igreja de São Francisco, this upscale restaurant is ideal for a romantic dinner, with pretty views of Ouro Prêto's hillsides, candlelight reflecting off tall multipaned windows, and Brazilian jazz on the sound system. The menu of trout, steak, pasta and mineira specialties is complemented by a good wine list.
