Morretes is a sleepy provincial town that seems to be full of restaurants serving the local specialty, barreado. Madalozo is one of the better-looking establishments on the river, and on the plus side has good service, large portions and plenty of seafood options. Not many of the servers spoke English so when we ordered the special barreado (with seafood) and... More

Morretes is on the way from Curitiba to the beach. The "Rua Graciosa" is breathtaking and this trip is better than the final stay at the shore. Unfortunately the Rua Graciosa is blocked for some repairs right now but it should be partially opened again soon. Morrettes is famous for it's dish "Barreado": Barreado is a stew that is slowly...

While travelling around southern Brazil, we visited a friend from Curitiba who recommended a trip here to sample the local speciality - and I'm glad we did. It wasn't too busy so we took a seat overlooking the river and ordered the Barreado with starters. We were not halfway through the starters when the Barreado arrived, along with rice and... More

So I came upon this restaurant by chance, I didn't know it's ranking on tripadvisor as I had no 3G and didn't research beforehand. So, it has a very small menu. I thought this would mean some really good food but honestly I had a meal that I really didn't enjoy. I ordered the Chicken Milanese, a favourite of mine,... More

Basically it is a set menu for everyone with beef stew, shrimps and fish (fried and boiled), and they taste good. They do have an interesting server of food who made a lively start of the meal. Service is very good as we asked for a table at the balcony, they promised to arrange one for in 30min and here... More

Excellent barreado experience... The dessert made if banana and local liqueurs is awesome. Service is great but pricy comparing to years ago. Definitely a must go at least once.

The local food called "barreado" served with banana. cassava flour and seafood are superb. There are two options for food, try the option 2 that is the most complete set with more seafood side options (crab meat, shrimp... More

The Serra Verde Express stops in Morretes. After taking a short walk along the historical area, I decided to find a busy restaurant to try the local delicacy - barreado. The host was helpful in finding a server who can speak English, albeit limited. It is a fix price menu with choice: with or without fish/shrimps. The meal includes a... More
