Worthwhile experience

The location in the middle of the rainforest is fantastic, but insect repellant is a must - ordered the squid starter and two risottos, the lobster and the seafood. The squid was well cooked and tender, and while the sauce was tasty and original, there was too much of it. The lobster risotto was... read more

Great food, great service and a really cozy atmosphere! The restaurant is located inside a swamp, with a really cosy surrounding. It's quite expensive!

I went to Manacá when I was 6 for the fist time. I absolutely loved. I still keep the memory of the nice cutlery. This summer I went back, for a revival after almost 20 years, and surprise: The place looks absolutely stunning! The only issue we had was our waitress that went repeated times to the wine celler to... More

This exotic restaurant is like a journey to Robinson Crusoe´s house, while experiencing an exquisite couisine. Be prepared to start a journey right when you park your car at the first or 2nd parking lot. There you will be carried to the restaurant itself in a confortable van. When you actually get to the restaurant, (I suggest you make reservations... More

A boardwalk takes you to a tropical garden with spacy tables and very attentive staff. The menu covers seafood especially well and choosing is a challenge. I went for the white fish tartare which was one of the best I ever had. The seafood platter was abundant and lush. I couldn't resist the "sobresmesas" and had one based on egg... More

It's a beautiful environment. A restaurant that makes you feel like you're in the middle of a rainforest. It's awesome! The food prices are steep, even by Sao Paulo standards(R$65-R$150 for mains) but the drinks aren't(R$8 for local beer). We started with a plate of 'Lula a dore' to share(fried calamari) & it was good, but not great. We then... More

Just one street off the main street and a 100 meter! ride with a VIP Van you arrive at the restaurant. but it feels as if you are in a tropical rainforest already. The entree is impressive with very much green plants everywhere. Dinner and wine were delicious. The lights on the table could be a bit less bright. Although... More
