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 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

Fantastic service with a smile, good food, reasonable prices and great music. The music starts at nine , so don't go to early.

We had heard about this place but were told it was essential to make reservations. Our friendly taxi driver, Moses, rang up and made the booking and just told us to turn up and mention his name. We arrived about 7.30pm which is a little early if you are there for the music, which starts between 8.30 and 9.00. Our... More

Definitely the place to go when you are in Praia and on the Plateau. Our meals were excellent. The intimate space is ideal for live music. The only drawback was the maître d': he was too quick to suggest the most expensive option. A little too much hustle. We felt more comfortable once he finally gave up on us and... More

...so i'm told by the locals. I went on a tuesday and it was a good show. A group of women play, sing and dance batuque, which originated in Santiago. the dancing is pretty impressive. You can go there for a drink, though most of the space is a restaurant, with the stage at one end. They do decent, filling... More

I visited Praia for a few days with a friend. At one point, a guy approached us and told us there was a performance in Quintal da Musica. So we went to have a look. The waiter was extremely friendly. We got a table, right in the frond of the little stage. He made us a special cocktail, which was... More

I went there with a group first, and it blew my mind. The food, the service and the music were all on point. The next time i visited Praia, i decided to go with few friends and the experience was the same. I'm sure the next time i'm in Praia, i will definitely be visiting again
