It was our first night in Samara and my husband's birthday so we chose Casa Esmeralda due to its favorable reviews. We were not disappointed! A short walk from our hotel, we found the service to be caring and the steaks first rate--I chose the pizziola steak and my husband had the pimenta steak--both winners. The drinks were tasty and well prepared. Admittedly, the restaurant is short on atmosphere, but it's the place to go to get off the beach for a bit and to enjoy a tender, nicely grilled steak!
