Although quite pricy, this is one of the best places to eat fish and seafood in São Paulo. It has been in place for years and never let quality down. Portions are huge so you can order one portion for two or even three if the third is a kid. My favourite starter is the "casquinha de siri" (crab meet), a traditional dish on the menu. If you like shrimp, there is the "risoto de camarão rosa" (shrimp risotto): unlike other risottos, no butter is added to the risotto, but rather tomato. It's lighter and richer in flavor. Another good choice is the 'pescada cambucu', a white fish baked in the oven with white wine, onions, potatos, tomatos and red peper. Delicious! The "caipirinhas" either with cachaça or vodka are carefully prepared and very tasty.
