Wonderful outdoor, but completely covered restaurant loaded with local art and artifacts and plants. The restaurant is entertaining just to sit and look at everything. The menu is composed of multiple varieties of Brazilian style tapioca and couscous and everything we tried was excellent. (smoked chicken, cheese and olive tapioca, shrimp and vegetable couscous and fried banana/dulce de leite tapioca)... More

This was a great place to eat. We absolutely loved the atmosphere and the food was both priced well and tasted fantastic. This was my second favorite place to eat in Natal and would highly recommend it.

We enjoyed eating here. The food was very tasty and unique. There is a wide variety of ingredients to choose from to stuff into what is basically a tapioca pancake. I went with the grilled chicken and cheese. There are vegetarian options as well. It is very reasonably priced. Very relaxed, funky, laid back atmosphere and the restaurant is open... More

I happened upon Casa de Taipa with a Brazilian friend, and I am so glad I did. Tapioca and cuzcuz, regional dishes that were wonderful -- and the caipirinha was excellent, too. Beautiful atmosphere, great service.

The place has a great decoration, so cozy and typical of northeast Brazil!. Food was delicious, only tapiocas, but stuffed with different things! Try the ones with cane do sol and nata as well as quiejo coalho and côco. They're great!!!! Caipirinha of cashew is just excellent!!

I really enjoyed this place. It was a bit expensive but the service, food and drinks (especially the pineapple capifruta) were delish. I got the couscous with shrimp and it was light and had good flavors. It wasn't overwhelming and I didn't leave the place feeling too full, which is great for me. The service was nice and it was...

If you're looking for the local taste of "tapiocas" (pastry made of yuca flour and filling of choice), this is THE place to visit! interesting, low key atmospehre, good service and a great selection of tapiocas merge into a very interesting experience.

We appreciated the food and the polite waiters. Do not miss the opportunity to visit this restaurant in Natal, maybe you need to wait a little bit during dinner but it is really worthy.

The wait staff here was very attentive and helpful. Also, the atmosphere is great: local artwork, lots of plants, unique tableware, and sandy floors. The food is also tasty and reasonably priced.
