I have read many good things about the restaurant. I must say it is really one of the best restaurants in Natal. Beautiful seaside atmosphere, attentive staff and great food. We had steak and fish and both were wonderful. There are tasty drinks. It is always well attended. A good sign.

This restaurant is known in Natal as upscale and expensive. In fact, it was not unreasonably priced. The atmosphere is pleasant, quiet and sophisticated, with a mix of traditional and contemporary furnishings. The menu is "European-Brazilian fusion," and there are many variations of bacalhau (codfish). The service and food were variable, however, and I don't feel inclined to go back.... More

Hi, I was yesterday at this restaurant. The starter (calamaries fried in dough, or squid) was very dry, the mustard sauce not appropriate. Very little taste, a deception. The bacalau main dish was rather nice. The wine by the glass was served in tiny quantities. I was not impressed by this restaurant. It was not bad neither. I won't go... More

We have tried the house's cod fish, Portuguese stile, with also a reasonable Portuguese wine and dessert, all very good, with a special note for the delicate preparation of cod. A piano was playing, so it was perfect for a romantic dinner. Not cheap, but worth.

This is THE place to go for bacalhau, the Norwegian salted and dried cod. They also have different meats and other seafood. Last year they did some refurbishment outside. Yes, they have a nice outside seating too. Good for smokers, I guess. We arrived quite early, just before 20:00 and due to few guests, the service was top notch. This... More

This restaurant is located in front of a beutifull beach in Natal. It's a top level restaurant. Good apetizers as, for example, melted brie cheese with honey. They have excellent codfish, big shrimps and lobsters. Desserts are also very creative. It's a triple A restaurant but expensive.

If you like bacalhau (the Norwegian dried and salted cod), this is the place. They also have other seafood and meat courses. Can highly recommend for a good food experience!
