Best restaurant in town (according to long term visitors). The ceviche is amazing as well as most of the dishes on the menu. Staff is nice and welcoming. Owner is eager to share her experiences and good mood. Prices are above average.

Small restaurant but packs a punch. The service is very gracious and professional. The menu is varied with Italian and Brazilian specialties. And the owner may offer you something special not on the regular menu. The caldos or soups are often times overlooked but they are an excellent inexpensive meal.

If portion sizes were better I would rate a 5. Best meal we had in Jeri. Picanha was great though small in portion and sides were all nicely done. Service was attentive and with a smile

This is a very tinny restaurant on a lateral street from the main street in Jericoacoara that is worth a visit. The owner herself takes your order and the food is freshly made with a homemade seasoning touch. We arrived around 3pm and the only negative aspect of the restaurant was that it took almost an hour for the food... More

This newly renovated restaurant in Jeri has been our favourite for four years. Owned by Sonia with Chico and Federico front line staff and a large team of ladies preparing the food in the kitchen. The staff are real personalities here and have a wonderful happy vibe between them and this spills over to the customers. It now has extra... More

The service was a bit slow but attentive, whilst the dishes were fresh, plentiful and very well prepared. I really could not get enough of this restaurant, seafood was amazingly fresh and my only regret is that I didn't eat there more times.
