I went there for dinner after a friend suggestion. Nice outdoor seating and great love music. Large dishes that serve two, great option in Meireles.

Best fish I have had for the last three years, grilled and seasoned to perfection. I chose what was called on the menu as "individual portions". Well, if you order an appetizer (at least a dozen of them had called my attention) their individual portion serves easily two persons. I have no words to describe the unique taste of the... More

Great local food in Fortaleza. Open through the afternoon for that late lunch or early dinner. If you order a two person dish in a single size, things can get a little expensive. So bring someone along!

Nice location to sit outside, have a cold beer and people watch. Parking during weekends is a nightmare. Food okay.

If you want to taste some typical food in Fortaleza city. Mainly the "baião de dois com carne de sol", you should get into this place. The dish is a jerked meat with manioc, beans and rice. The beans and rice are mixed. The manioc can be fried. The jerked meat is very delicious. And they have other dishes.

The food was average but for 23 reais for two during lunch it was a filler but not memorable.
