I recently went to Banzeiro for a business dinner my first night in Manaus. The Tamabqui ribs and the Pirarucu were both great, and portions were quite large. I've eaten all of the world, so it is always nice to try local cuisines unique to where you are. Not only was this classic Amazon fish, but the preparation and presentation... More

the fish was amazing. The desserts are great. The negative point was that the food took a lot of tie for coming. Maybe because there was a lot of people together.

Had Tambaqui ribs and Pirarucu with black rice. Both were good servings enough for four people. The sides were good. Prices are a little to the high due to the reputation of the chef.

This is one of the best restaurants in Manaus to eat regional food with hints of an international Chef. Do not miss the Pirarucu Fish with Mandioc flour with Tucuma flavor (Farofa de Tucumã). There is another Pirarucu fish with black rice and shitake sauce. Yummy.

It was a little hard to get to but that was purely City Guides fault. Follow the address. Opens at dinner (6:30), so if you get there a little early stop by Pizza e Bessa (6 PM open). Very good service, takes its fine dinning seriously, the food was well prepared....deserves its no. 1 ranking in Manaus. The desert menu... More

Ate here on my first night in Manaus in June 2014. It was one of the better dining experiences I had in Brazil. Their Pirarucu is prepared to near perfection, and you can choose numerous different ways to have it prepared. It is an incredibly good value for what it was - we left the place stuffed and had some... More

Manaus to say the least is not a great culinary city, this was the first restaurant we visited in Brazil and it went downhill from Banzeiro until we arrived in Rio. We had a lovely palm heart salad and our first of many tambaqui "stews". This was the best of them. the service was very attentive, highly recommend

Since Manaus isn't a gastronomy heaven, and had visited a few random restautants in the centro the previous days, this was a wonderful surprise. The staff was very attentative and friendly. The food was delicious, but a bit heavy as it always seems to be in Brazil. We had as a starter chef's recommended ant (yes the insect) entre and... More

In a city were culinary cuisine is pretty much the same from restaurant to restaurant, Banzeiro was a refreshing change packed with deliciousness. We visited during the World Cup, on a Friday night, without reservations. During our 45 minute wait we downed a few refreshingly sweet Caipirinhas. As our appetizer, we gulped a few of their famous Tacaca soups. And... More
