Cheap, honest, quality

Humble place, no fancy decoration, with surprisingly good dishes. Fresh and quality are the synonymous for the restricted options.

The most famous "prato ffeito " in Arraial. Prato feito means your dish will come served from the kitchen. But don't worry. Only the best sea food from the region and the best service you will find here. Also, the best cost benefit arround. Paulo and his family are always arround.

I have been in this restaurant 20 years ago. The moqueca hasn't changed, neither the owner's kindness or the fair price! Really reccomend it! Worth the line!

Simple restaurant, limited options (something Brazilians call "prato feito" which is a meal made with a little bit of salad, rice, beans, fries (or something to that effect ) and the main ingredient you get to choose among fish, shrimps, beef, chicken... The name in portuguese means literally "done dish" because it's one serving in a plate. The food is... More

No atmosphere. Ordinary food. No reason to go. I do not understand the ratings! Had many good meals in town and this was by far the worse.

So the restaurant is simple, but have excellent attendants. Bucolic sensation and the best food. Excellent price and the Paulo's owner comes to your dining table and as a reception mist expedition guide line. The food is awesome! The fish with pirão is the best. Have a good time!!

So many times here. Can't remember the first. It won't be the last for sure. My favorite PF in Arraial ( at least one of them). The family owned managed and served restaurant is a certain point for quality food in Arraial dajuda. any dish will be well prepared and served. More then 20 years eating here...

First----the line from the locals trying to get is the first hint you are in for a treat. Second---the prices are so reasonable that you may think that you are not in for a meal that could be served at the finest 5-star restaurant in a big city. Do not be fooled. Third---Fresh fish well prepared sounds simple yet so... More
