Choice in Fortaleza for seafood

This is a very good regional seafood restaurant. The food is well done and the service excellent. It´s is not a sofisticated restaurant. There are two addresses in the city.

The food was ok. The fish and squid were hard therefore not very taste. Also in general the food was a bit salty. The restaurant is not cheapest one so you would expect a high quality. The portions are well served usually more than two persons need. There is room for improvement!!!

All the food was great. We pretty much randomly picked from their English menu. Probably my fav was the paella. Sounds like there's a couple of locations, we went to the one on R. Visconde de Maua, 200 meireles fortaleza. Portions are pretty generous. For 9 who were decently hungry, you could get away with ordering 4-5 entrees + 1... More

A hidden jewell hidden by the local: excelent seafood. We ordered Chef Didi Speciality and the dish comes with a large quantity of shrimps, "Sirigado" fish, Lobster and calamaris. Chef Didi also recommended "Arroz com Camarões", the best Shrimp Risoto I have had. Do not leave Fortaleza without have a meal there.

We´ve been to the one closer to Beira-mar, and we had their signature dish, a mix of fish, lobster, shrimp, octopus and squid, with white wine and portuguese olive oil, side dish rice with fish eggs. Everything was delicious, cooked to perfection. The service was also great, discrete and fast. I recommend this place without second thoughts

Pros: - Good food: simple and tasteful; - Price: although it increased substantially from last time I went there one year ago, it is still a good value for having fresh lobster, shrimps and "sirigado", (R$60/person, including wine, in a table of four); Cons: - The service is so terrible that sometimes you think the waiters are joking.

A little distant from the tourist strip, we found the Rei dos Mares as a very sympathetic restaurant with delicious food and quick and efficient service The dishes are very generous with "affordable" prices.
