That is a must go in Fortaleza

If you are looking for sophisticated food, Coco Bambu is probably not for you. Most of their food is based on popular dishes. Their dishes can be normally shared by 2 or more, which leads to very reasonable prices. Quality of the ingredients, service and ambience are very good, so expect waiting... read more

This is a very good restaurant, just by the sea. Food is excellent, and portions are so big that can easily be enough for 3 people. I never go there alone, because I've not discovered so far anything on the menu that is in fact for one person only. The restaurant is very nice and very pleasant, on either the... More

Beautiful seafood just in front of the beach. A bit too fancy, but it's ok. We can have a calm and tasteful lunch.

Bring your family - the plates are really big! I order a kids plate what I normally don't do because he is a big eater, but for my surprise he only ate half of his spaghetti and was full. That plate was enough for two adults! I also ordered the Camarao Internacional (International Prawns). They said it was enough for... More

CocoBambu is an excellent choice if you are willing to have a nice seafood meal in a cozy environment. Although informal is relatively expensive for brazilian standards, and actually cheap for those who have dollars and euros. Don't expect to find lonely women there. Is a family place. Any dish serves 2 or even 3.

They specialize in seafood and I have enjoyed everything that I have had here. The spacious restaurant has a number of different areas for dining, from the ample open-air terrace to an air-conditioned salon. You can choose from a wide selection of fish, meat and salads. The good seafood is served on large portions.

It's been three days since my wife and I are at this place and we are still talking about how good this meal was. Our first night in Brazil and I wanted some good seafood - this place delivered. The shrimp in coco sauce with perfect sticky rice. Yum!

This is as good as it gets in Fortaleza for an open-aired restaurant with a huge menu to satisfy large family groups. Little really exceptional, but great staff, happy ambience and lots of activities for kids including a supervized playground.

Several years ago I was in Fortaleza when this restaurant opened. At that time it was called Camaroes ("Shrimp"), and along with an Argentine steak house called Parrilla's, were in my mine the two best restaurants in Fortaleza. Since then the Argentine restaurant has closed and the renamed Camaroes restaurant has declined. While it is still now, as it was... More
