This place was recommended to us by the tour company with whom we visited the Amazon. And we certainly recommend this restaurant if you are visiting Manaus. The location is very good - overlooking Teatro Amazonas. When we visited in Dec, we were able to have dinner while enjoying the Christmas performance that was being staged outside the theatre. The...

This restaurant is situated in the center of the tourist spot, the Amazon Opera House Square. But don't let that make you think this is some tourist trap :-) Tambaqui is kind of fish found in the Amazon river, loved by locals. This restaurants specializes in grilling the fish. When you order the dish "Tambaqui de Banda", they would grill... More

One of the best places to eat with the best view. No doubt it's the best location in downtown. The food is delicious and with a very good price. When you're there, look for the shirts of Caboquês Ilustrado ;)

Best Tambaqui fish I ate in Manaus! It's a great amazon fish, no bones, and the name "Banda" means it comes half of it - so it's pretty big! Even the small one is enough for 2 people. Price is also great. And don't forget to try the Taperebá juice (best amazon fruit ever).

This interesting restaurant is located a stone's throw from the Teatro Amazonas, which is reflected in the prices. The fish they serve is delicious (din't try any other dishes). One of their specialities, the 'Banda de Tambaqui', comes in different sizes, the 'small' being large enough for a filling lunch (it comes with many sides including beans, chopped tomato/onion, manioc...

I had the Tambaqui de Banda and my boyfriend, who doesn't eat fish, had steak which he said was good. None of the staff spoke English and we don't speak Portuguese so when I ordered they couldn't tell me that the small Tambaqui de Banda is too much for one person! It was a lot of food but absolutely delicious,... More

If in Manaus, you must truly the local fish Tambaqui. A white fish with quite a bit of meat and and not so many bones. The restaurant does and excellent Tambaqui fish ribs dish, which is crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside. However the fish and chips option was only average and the banana fritters was good... More
