If you like fish, this is the place! We had delicious Tambaqui (pronounced TAM-BA-Kee), probably one of the best fish dishes I have ever had in my life. Delicous caiparinhas. Don't miss this place!

Found this restaurant in an article in LA Times. Was a long taxi ride from our hotel but worth every minute it took to get there. The parsnip foam with leaf cutter ants was surprisingly good. The grilled Hearts of Palm with sea salt and olive oil was superb. The Pirarucu (local amazon catfish) with rice, farofa and tucuma was... More

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
