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.

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

Loved the live music session. A great way to get introduced to the music of the island. Food wasn't bad either.
