Last Night in Brasil - and we had to say thanks to our son and girlfriend. Thanks to tripadvisor we found this lovely restaurant. Fantastic terasse with a view over Pipa and the ocean. We choose the 4-course menue with accompanied wines - and enjoyed every taste!! Thanks fot that special night!

Apart from enthusiastically going out of their way to create a gluten free dessert for my partner for his birthday, this place had it all - fun atmosphere with a great view, super friendly and efficient staff, delicious food with a good selection of choices and nice wine. Please, do yourself a favour and dine aqui.

The view alone from this restaurant, which sits on a buff, up a steep side street, and with a commanding view of the ocean lying some distance below, is worth a visit. It is a small, quiet restaurant, which adds to the intimate atmosphere. Perfect place for a date or for not feeling 'alone' when dining alone. I found the... More

We went here for valentines day and ate from the taster menu including wine. I had fish and my partner had the meat. Both were incredible, such delicious flavours. The fish was our favourite. The wines were perfect and the service friendly and helpful. We couldn't eat it all though as the portions were generous. Overall, a fantastic meal and... More

I asked for a fish with coconut crust that was amazing. The ambiance is very nice. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

The environment alone is great, but the food is what makes this one of my favourite restaurants. I have been going to Pipa often and Aqui doesn't stop impressing me. They hold some very good cooking techniques that coupled with a creative use of local food make the experience unforgettable.

Pipa is great - for such a small town there are a number of restaurants where you can eat really well and Aqui is top of the line. My husband had a filet while I tried the tuna - both were delicious (as was the appetiser and the dessert, by the way). Everything is made fresh and you can taste... More

The place is located up a narrow street. We went there for dinner, but during the day (or dawn) I imagine the view to be very nice (ocean). We went for the fish tasting menu, composed of 3 courses plus desert. Food was well prepared and elaborated. The service is attentive and nice, we felt the restaurant is owned and... More

A charming spot. Short menu but highly creative with beautifully presented, delicious, fusion-style food. Super-friendly and enthusiastic international staff. Highly recommended
