The best local restaurant

Very good restaurant and I think is the best in the city. Fast service with many local dishes especialized for sweet water fish. Ask for Caipirinha with local fruits, delicious! prices are reasonable and for dinner reservation recomended if you dont wont to wait a long time.

I don’t think I have ever gone to a restaurant on two consecutive nights but I did here with Casa do Joao. Fantastic setting. Very mello. Very attractive. Extensive menu. Great food. Good beer and nice wait staff. Can’t say enough about how good this place was.

Simply delicious!. Pirara is a regional fish. Very soft taste, tender meat. Pacu is other fish. Fat meat with strong taste. You must try. The... More

I found a significant number of reviews recommending this restaurants by its fish, especially "traira". I really don't like this fish, because this isn't easy to eat. Then, we opted to order a soup of jmeat with cassava, a kind of local cousin with impressed me a lot. But, anyway, the difference in this place was the service: the owner... More

great for big or small groups, good portions and reasonable price, great drinks and excellent service by Billy and others. We also had vegetarians in the group and all people were happy after the meal. Jaboticabas in the restaurant was the final touch...

We visited this restaurant because of the great reviews on tripadvisor. We didn't initially see it from the main street but you just need to walk a block behind the park with the giant fish fountain! The food here is really good. The waiter recommended the traiera fish which is what the restaurant first started serving all those years ago.... More

the food there is very good, the service is top, they have exotic local beer (one of the options was made from manioc), but is quite expensive. It worths a visit.

I arrived with a group of 12 people on a Saturday night, a busy time I know, but we were treated very badly by the receptionist and ended up giving up and went to another restaurant. On arrive I clearly stated that we could split our group into 2 groups of 6 or even 3 groups of 4 people. The... More
