Nice spot

Nice and relaxing restaurant with live performances in the evening, tasty food and pleasant staff. Beautiful views of the bay which is a such a cool place to hang around in the evenings.

The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere and nice view. The food is good, it isn't expensive and is well served. A dish for one can be shared by to persons. The service is also nice.

Very good restaurant, serving delicious local food and much more, awesome pizza too. Very helpful staff in a very busy and popular restaurant. Even willing to bring a table upstairs from outside for us. The night we went there was live music too..super! Right next to the river in town.

We paid 72 reais for a 2 person serve of fish done in the local way. It was enough food to feed three people and absolutely delicious. The service was great; we had a lady serving us upstairs on the balcony who was super attentive! Cheap caipirinhas too - only 5.50 reais each. Perfect night out!

We only ate here once but it was delicious and good value. We had the prawns (shrimp) served in pineapple together with a fish I can't remember, but both were excellent.
