Popular, but with courteous service and great seafood!

Tia Maluca Restaurant is located by the Itajuru Channel, at downtown Cabo Frio. Most tables are on the sidewalk under a canvas shelter.

8 of us had dinner there as we had a meeting in Cabo Frio. Some dishes were edible, others were not. Two were sent back, the rest were so-so at best. Caipirinhas we only just passable.
