Looks Fancy but Horrible Food

Me and my friend went there because it looks very nice from the outside and is also air conditioned as well. I ordered Langosta and my friend ordered a steak in a dijon mustard sauce. The langosta was very over cooked and it came with a risotto that looked and tasted like brown mushy goo! My... read more

Gatos de Rua is a very charming restaurant in Porto. Excelente to change a little the " beach atmosphere". Food is good. Wine list needs some improvement. The store downstairs is lovely. Attention : camarão no abacaxi is really sweet. Peixe na folha de bananeira is a good option.

That was the only fancy restaurant we found in Porto de Galinhas village center, but I believe there are others we didn't hear of. Menu and decoration were sophisticated. Food was good enough, a bit pricey.

This is such a lovely place, that I just have to recommend it to everyone that want to spend some time in a unique restaurant.. It is absolutely perfect for special occasions and dinners for two. The interior is all in coloured pearls; the place is divided into different "colour" sectors and in my opinion, the tables next to the... More

This is the most beautiful restaurant in Porto. The waiter, Ery one of the most helpful, kind, nice person I´ve ever met... always asking about what we need.. Offering the best option according to our preferences... Not soooo expensive like most people imagine... because most of the plates are for sharing... The atmosphere is chilled out, and the place looks... More

The building where the restaurant is located has a very nice souvenir shop on the first floor. The restaurant is on the second floor and the first impression is of a tackly decorated place with pretentious waiters. After few minutes you realize that the waiters know what they are doing, the food is excellent and the decoration is excentric.

While not the cheapest option in Porto de Galinhas it was for us (young couple) the best which we tried during our one week stay. The service was exceptionally good and friendly. The waiter had also a great knowledge of the menu and could explain details and the preparation (at least in portuguese). The food itself was also excellent. Especially... More
