Camarão ao molho de cajá (Shrimps Cajá sauce)

This restaurante serves shrimp and many other foods (for those who don't like seafood, this is very convenient) with an excellent cost-benefit ratio. The food is delicious, and this particular sauce made with a regional fruit is outstanding. It's as comfortable indoors, as in the balcony. Located... read more

As a solo traveler, you are looking for something convenient, something tasty, something that satisfies what you miss when travel alone. This fit the bill. When I was there, van after van of people came into the restaurant - helps when the restaurant offers free transportation. My meal of fried chicken steak, french fries and banana was good. After having... More

Tripadvisor ranks Farofa in its top 1% of Natal restaurants; Frommers mentions it as 1 of 5 worthwhile restaurants. It extols the carne de sol. So we tried it, of course. Wonderful outdoor dining, relaxed atmosphere. The 4 of us had great conversations. We all ordered the carne de sol (which is not on the english menu). Two of us... More

The location could have been better, but other positive things adds up and make this restaurant our best liked restaurant, among our brazilian friends as well. Good food is always served with a...

I read good reviews on this place and I am not sure what i expected. We got the Filé a Parmeggiana and the meat was kind of raw and overall underwhelming and overpriced. As for the dessert, a chocolate mousse, they didn't even bother taking off the nutritional tab off the plastic cup. If I want store bought mousse, I... More

Good menu, but the food is not delicious. Take this option for an average meal, with medium prices. Good waiters, nice location, but not very easy to park.z

Very very good food at honest price. Good service, nice place and clean. Try crab apetizer (casquinho de caranguejo).
