The local dish, like a shepards pie, with meat and cheese mixed in, is done wonderfully here. It's right on the central square of the town.

Excelent food and the prices are affordable. Would be perfect if the music was not so loud. The beer was ice cold, awesome!

The fish dishes and the cheese with honey dessert (must have) were good. Service was slow as usual for Brazil. The live entertainment started to sing for the evening hours, just when we asked for the check. The check included a fee for the entertainment even though we were just leaving so check your bill.

The macaxeira is excellent. We order the Barcaxeira moqueca too, and it was amazing. But all, including the beverages, took an eternity to come!

It's a nice place with good live music. The food is good but nothing extraordinary. The service was also good but the kitchen mistook my order and I had to wait about 20 min more than the other people at my table and ate when everybody had nearly finished their food. Toilets are ok. The restaurant provide children with pencils... More

We did our research on trip advisor and decided this was the place for lunch when we arrived. It was half full with a decent number of wait staff around. No one offered to seat us so we took our own seats and collected menus to choose. We decided on drinks and food but still no service. We managed to... More

Don't make the simple installations make you wrong: Barcaxeira is the best place in Porto de Galinhas to have the real taste of regional Brazilian food. Nice for children's (they have a special menu for them) and parents, maybe the time to have the order ready is too much (more than 20 minutes) because the natural way they prepare the... More

Mandioca or Macaxeira choose the Brazilian name for this root and go along! Try the gratinated puree filled with carne de sol or shrimp!

This place is simply awesome! It is unpretentious and even simple, but it is authentic in everything; from the delightful food to the decor, from the attention to the fair prices. The appetizers are not that amazing and we thought it was not worth it... But the main course... the Macaxeira filled with Carne de Sol was simply the best... More

The food was excellent, everything we tried was amazing. The service was also great, very friendly and attentive staff. We went back 3 more times for either snacks or dinner.
