There are many restaurants around CBPF serving food of different styles and at different prices. Many restaurants work by the weight system where you are charged based on the amount (measured in grams) of food you get from a buffet. Many operate as a flat fee buffet and others have a menu service. A meal may go from less than R$15.00 in simple student restaurants to around R$ 50.00 in more elaborated places. Good meals can be found in the R$ 20.00 to R$ 30.00 range. In all cases add extra for drinks. Many restaurants add a 10% service fee. Otherwise a customary 10% may voluntarily be paid to the server. CBPF has a very affordable restaurant that works by the weight system.
