The best one in all Espirito Santo. " De comer rezando". Waiter Joao is a sort of personage in the place. Very nice.

Pirao Restaurant @ Triangle, Praia do Canto - Vitoria. The best Moqueca Capixaba ever! Moqueca is a Brazilian recipe based on salt water fish stew in tomatoes, onions, garlic, coriander and some palm oil. Superior service: your moqueca seasoning is customizable according to your preferences.

Search for "moqueca capixaba". A tomato and parsley based stew, made of fish, prawn ou lobster. Delicious, and a side dish called "pirao", made of manioc powder ant fish stock, with parsley and small cuts of fish, may be done with prawn added. Good service, poor wine chart, and only pilsen beer amongst the cheapest from Brazil. Food delicious.

way to expensive! their prices just get out of range. The food is great, but not worth the money, you can find just the same food around for half the price!

Had a moqueca capixaba with medium sized shrimp. Had a "casquinha de siri", crab meat, as a starter. Both were outstanding, cooked just right, very tasty, right temperature, one and a half orders for 3 people and we couldn't eat it all! Service was prompt and courteous, the bill had to be ordered a few times. It was like they... More

I had the moqueca com pirão. The service was good (trying to help me to express myself in Portuguese) but not very attentive (I had to ask for a refill twice). The food was abundant, fresh and boiling when served. If you're looking for cheap, don't go here.

simple ambience, good service, but not impressive food, not really cheap for brazilian standards. moqueca came overcooked, pirão came almost at ambeince temperature and should be almost boiling temperature.
