“Finest dining in Porto de Galinhas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

After 3 days in Porto de Galinhas, lunching and dinning everywhere, we finally decided to make something different on our last night... and so, we decided to give Domingos a chance!

And this pleasant place didn't disappoint us - and actually, it has even exceeded our expectations!

The atmosphere is quite charming and romantic, as well as the sound track, with a live piano (on a jazz and bossa nova style) performance!

As if it wasn't enough the quality and the refinement of our entrance ("trouxinha do mar") and of the main courses ("camarão ao ternedor" and "paillard de lagosta"), the wine list and the service were also impeccable! Everything delicious, very authentic and on a gold standard of attention.

Celio, Edson, Estevão and Domingos; thank you so much for such a special night and dinner!

We will certainly be back soon!

“Good food in a fancy atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

This restaurant is an ideal place for a romantic dinner. The decoration is nice, mostly white, and there is a piano and a violin playing live music. The service was also very friendly. They have different specials every day, we were there on a Friday and had the lobster special. You can choose a lobster plate out of three for 69.90 R$ for two persons. We choose the lobster with passionfruit sauce (lagosta com molho de maracuja) which was delicous. In the end, for 2 persons (2 lobster plates, 2 cokes and cover for the musicians and service) we payed 95R$.

“Good food...but....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2010

Nice location. Very good food. Waiters very attentif (mabe to much????.....) BUT....!!!!! Be very careful and control your bill !!!!!!!!!!!!!! We (2 couples) where there 2 different nights and we had every time a problem with the bill. The amount of the bill was not the same as the amount on the menu-card!!!!!! We did tell it to the waiters, they just changed us the bill with a big smile!!!!!!! Another couple we meet there had the same problem......Just enjoy your food and drinks there but check your bill twice!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its disapointing........We rate this restaurant only "very good" for the food.

“Really good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2010

We want to this restaurant without knowing the ambiance or the food, and it was a real surprise! the food is really good, spicy with a french taste, and the ratio quality/price is correct. Th waiters are really concerned about your well being, and it is the only restaurant I tried in porto de galinhas where you don't have to wait 45 minutes to order!
Plus th ambiance with the decoration and the piano is magic.
Try!!
