This place was recommended to us by the owners of Wakan bar, who kindly called the restaurant and booked for us. In a narrow street in the old town and up three flights of stairs, it was well worth the visit (note: I do not recall seeing any lift, for people with walking difficulties). Service was good. Had to wait... More

In the middle of Sal Rei this is a roof top restaurant up a long staircase. Food was very good as was the service. Nice fresh fish and well presented. Very reasonably priced.

We all were very satisfied with this restaurant. We had the grilled wahoo fish and it was excellent, good service and great food. For dessert we tried the ice cream and chocolat mousse, okay, no wow. But well worth the stay here!

We missed this restaurant on our first visit to Boa Vista but caught it this time and had a lovely meal there. The service was excellent and it has a great rooftop location with lovely views. Access has character too, with a staircase that changes head height as you go up - tall people mind you don't bump your head!... More

We are Boa Vista regulars so it has taken a few trips for us to finally eat at Grill Luar. It is a roof top restaurant reached up a staircase with a low ceiling so tall people be careful. I think there are a lot of good restaurants in Sal Rei but this ranks amongst the best. I've been promising... More

We've visited this restaurant on our second day in Boa Vista and returned to it 4 times! Yes it is great and much better than other establishments on the island. I recommend all fish dishes and milk pudding! Thanks for accompanying our stay in Boa Vista with great dinners ;)
