Great portions of very fresh sea food. One portion serves two or three persons. Best Greek style shrimp. Arrive early, they do not accept reservations and there is normally a waiting queue. Bu, it Worth.

We came by recommendation of a friend. We ordered the rose wine and whenbit came the waiter did not wait for me to taste it, just served the wine. It was a sweet one and we didn't like it but he refused to change the bottle. Overall a pictoresque character that waiter. I liked the food overall but the peacada... More

This small restaurant is located in a region that usually has more locals than tourists. The view faces the port, seats are confortable and service staff is friendly and fast. The menu has mainly fish and seafood dishes. I recommend fish "a moda da casa", very tasty, comes with rice, vegetables and potatoes. Also the octopus was tender and tasty.

If you would like to have a good typical seafood meal in santos this is the place to go. We have tried many places and this is one of the better ones for sure. As far as Brazil / Santos goes you will not go wrong with this choice.

If you are one of those that really love seafood, this is the place to go. You can choose octopus, shrimps, fish... all delicious. You can even try a delicious "paella". The restaurant has other kinds of food too... all tasty and delicious.
