Great experience, the environment are very nice. The tree around, candlelight and the bungalows make the place very majestic. The fish food are fantastic. Who goes to Camburi must go there.

Beautiful atmosphere, tucked back in a piece of the Atlantic rainforest. We didn't have a reservation on a Friday night, but the host was very friendly and made the wait for a table enjoyable. The food was delicious. I would recommend it for a nice dinner if you are in the area.

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.

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
