“Outstanding restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

My wife and I were in Jericoacoara for five nights on our honeymoon, and we loved Tamarindo so much we ate there three nights.

The food is amazing. They have a varied menu that provided enough variety for us to come back three times without getting too bored or feeling repetitive. Their seafood is great, and their steaks are even better; try the Argentinian steak with oil and Brazil nuts — it's quite possibly the best steak I've ever eaten. Make sure you order dessert too. My mouth is watering just thinking about the little lime-chocolate brigadeirão pudding cups we devoured.

Their prices were also quite reasonable. If you are penny pinching, there are definitely cheaper restaurants in Jericoacoara. But for $60-$70 (about 120 reais) including tip, you can have a feast for two, including appies, entrees, a drink or two each and dessert. It's well worth it.

“nice atmosphere but overpriced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We had dinner with friends at this restaurant and we enjoyed the nice atmosphere and good service. The food was nice but not so exceptional to justify the price .

“atmosphere plus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I loved the looks of this restaurant. Set down off the street in and amongst the trees. Great service and wonderful fish. Servers were attentive and offered great suggestions. In fact I would have ordered the fish with Tamarindo sauce except for their suggestion and it was terrific!
