Great service, superb food and not just seafood (although I thoroughly recommend the Spaghetti with Clams). Try this Restaurant you will not be disappointed!

I actually really like this place for a very cold beer, local cachaça and appetizers like fried fish samplers, shrimp and the view. The entrees, however, are nothing special and won´t wow you, it is ok seafod. Season gets overcrowded and service getspoor, off season is very pleasant.
