I was taken here by friends while visiting for business. Their specialty, like many of the other people mentioned, is the Tambaqui Ribs. They are amazing. They are very meaty and very tasty. I'd recommend being careful of how much food you order because they bring you a lot here.

Went there with group of co-workers to have what's best on the region... Tambaqui Ribs! Tambaqui is a typical fish from the region, giant one, from the river. The fish is so giant that you eat its ribs. It's delicious and has got a lot of meat. It's a typical restaurant with a very, very simply atmosphere. Worths a visit.... More

Our host at the guesthouse recommended we go to this place for dinner. He even wrote down which dishes he suggests we try. After a disapointing tour of the Amazon we needed some comfort to restore our faith in Manaos and this place did mot disappoint. The beer is served ice cold, the food is flavorful and the fish is...

We stayed at a resort 3 hours outside of Manaus, and had to spend half a day in a rather bland Manaus before we catch the flight at 4pm back to Sao Paulo. After seeing the manatees at the park and the meeting of the waters, this fish restaurant was a perfect place for a relaxing lunch of great fish... More

Corner fish restaurant found in Praca 14 has plenty of locals enjoying reasonably priced seafood dishes. They have wood curvings of manatee, Pirarucu, peacock sea bass and other fresh fishes all over the walls and has a whole big Tambaqui in the freezer. The biggest fresh water fishes found only in the Amazon – Pirarucu and Tambaqui – has white... More

Manaus must have a great PR firm. One would assume that this is a tropical paradise, from what is written in travel guides. Far from the truth. If you are considering visiting here, I recommend reading candid reviews of restaurants and hotels before ever investing a dime because the customer service here is among the worst I've ever experienced, and...

Ended up at this wonderful place (one of the oldest in Manaus) after meeting the owner's daughter, who often helps out in the family business (she helps interpret for the non-Portuguese speaking guests :-)). It's a nice location on a busy, though not traffic-congested corner of Manaus, great wrap-around seating outside. They are known for their fish and they deliver.... More

One of Manaus' oldest fish restaurants, well known for preparing tasty local fish dishes. Stuck close to the heart of town, at a junction of busy roads, and no visual attractions nearby, you might be unhappy at the sitting accommodations. The food is good, the seating and location not so much.
