From the large variety of Praia do Forte restaurants, we dined twice at Sabor da Vila and enjoyed all the food served (great lula a doré & Moqueqa). From the outside it looks not so promising, but the food, drinks, desert and the service were just great.

We went twice to Sabor da Vila after getting recommendations from locals here. We were not disappointed. First time we had grilled lobster, very good. Second time we had Moqueca and we tried one where we asked them to mix the vegetarian one (with lots of good vegetables) with the shrimp one, and that was really, really good. The shrimps... More

We had a seafood plate with lobster, squid, calamari, shrimp, all grilled and it was delicious! The restaurant is located right in the middle of the main street of Praia do forte, really easy to find!

A group of 5 came here after a local Wine bar owner (Newton) recommended the location. Dinner, over all was good and a bit better than the standard restaurants. Caipirinhas were delish and had fancy presentation. Which we loved since we were on vacay. But the standout meal was the Sea Food Moqueca that serves 2-3 and the Vegetarian Moqueca.... More

We have often visited this restaurant and enjoyed their Brazilian food. It is not expensive nor cheap but good quality for the money! The staff is friendly and support you well

For Aussies seeking some steam veggies this restaurant is for you. The service was nice and quick, they have steam vegetables with their steak dishes which is rare in Brasil. Restaurant is clean and tidy, outdoor seating on the main strip in Praia do Forte.

It`s the second time in Praia do Forte and after 6 years this place keeps the same excellent flavor and quality. Only the price is salty.

The food is really good! We had a wonderful octopus and moqueca with ship and fish! Service is a bit slow but food is truly worth it.

I really do not understand why the restaurants is so highly rated - the food is full or soya oil (cheapest one and worst taste of all oils to my view), all side dishes are not fresh (micro waves heated french fries, rice and even pastas!) - Gorgonzola sauce is 90% industrial creme and 10% Gorgonzola, serves frozen fishes and...

There was a shrimp festival, so we ate it for a reasonable price, and it was tasteful, although the portion was small, it served only one person.
