Great atmosphere, great for weekend dinner

Excellent atmosphere with the tables facing the stage where they have fantastic local musicians. Food was fresh and tasty and a great choice for Praia. We would definitely return.

If you like live jazz and really good sea food then this place is for you... The lobster and king prawn platter is a must. Just make sure you're hungry...

I enjoyed the restaurant. I've been there several times during my stay in Cape Verde. The music (there just playing Cape Verdean music) is of very good quality, although there are better nights than others. The food is very good and the service is also very good. Prices are not very good, but worth it.

This place was recommended and the recommendation was well worth it. From the moment we arrived until the moment they put us in a taxi which they had called for us, the service was faultless. This restaurant's atmosphere was sublime. The food and wine menus are extensive and the food and attentiveness of staff was great. On the stage local... More

The experience was great from our entrance to their organizing a taxi for us. The service was great, the food was excellent. Local wine tasty and the local music show was fantastic, including the composers getting up and singing themselves. Very definitely a MUST do in Praia

Service- impeccable, the waiter was so attentive and beyond polite. He was say "excuse me" everytime he left the table. Food- fresh, huge portions, affordable $10.00ish for an entree. Desserts-had fresh coconut gelato and it had real chunks of coconut and whipped chocolate mousse. Atmosphere- live entertainment, good crowd Check it out !

For a night out can't go wrong. The music (along with dancing if you choose too), the singers, and the staffs all combine to make it a memorable time out! A highlight of any visit/tour to Praia. I truly enjoyed and highly recommended.

This probably your best bet in Praia. Not only the show is amazing, inspired combination of samba, African rhythm, jazz and fado, but the food is equally outstanding, which is quite rare. I had soup of mariscos, which was like a Brazilian moqueca, absolutely delicious and the Fish Bouillabaisse, which was very flavourful. In this restaurant you really get value... More

I was there as a guest to the airline once they cancelled the flight. Therefore the food choice was not an option but what I got, rice with -, was not bad at all. The place seems to have a link to music (there was a musical instrument set on a podium) but that evening no music. Not a panoramic... More
