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!

Nice restaurant and I recomend the shrimps with abacaxi (pineapple). The service could be better and faster, but the food is awesome.

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.

We had a fantastic dinner here - grilled prawns, spaghetti in seafood sauce, salad and three great desserts - and it was all excellent, with really fresh and flavoursome ingredients. Service was equally good and the setting overlooking the river and fishing boats was lovely. I recommend this place highly.

The food was nice, especially the grilled fish. The inside space was cozy especially if you get a table right next to the balcony rail. There is also space outside with some plastic chairs and tables where you can eat that is nice. They have desserts which in general were quite hard to find in Barreirinhas.
