Like: great location and view & good food.

For the rates one could expect larger shrimps on the dishes with no harm to business. But still a beautiful view and marvelous crab cakes.

It's not pricy and the food is ok. I would say average. The good: the restaurant has a/c. The bad: the service is good but the kitchen takes a long to serve the dishes.

In a tiny little village with what seems like lots of very nice restaurants. We chose Bate Ponto based on a recommendation. Not sure if it is any better than the others, but it sure was great. Sit outside on the deck at sunset.

Location, location, location. Bate Ponto's view is amazing and the neighborhood is incredibly charming. We had strawberry caipirinhas and shrimp pastéis as appetizers and they were very good. The service was slow and confusing. I asked for the octopus provencal and it was very disappointed. My friends were disappointed about their orders as well. Overcooked shrimp and tasteless mashed potatoes.... More

Waiters are not polite, not clever and do not really care. Overall it also seems management is not present. It took so much time, food was not good... More

The place is ok, kind of cozy, on an extremely charming neighborhood, but food is poor and extremely overpriced. We ordered a shrimp moqueca, which was supposed to serve two people, and could not believe the half dozen tiny schrimps inside the clay pan.

This restaurant is very nicely set, but has a serious management problem (and/or owners couldn't care less). Staff are attentive and friendly, but several things indicate there's a deeper rooted problem. First, some dishes are unavailable because they "cannot find the fish at an acceptable price". The alternatives offered come at an (unlisted) premium. I am fine with businesses turning... More
