Book ahead and particularly on Thursdays (when cherished Cape Verdean musicians will be present 9 pm onwards) Around 300 CVe for the couvert/music. Excellent food and attentive staff.

The evening started slow, but maybe we started to early (08.00 pm). The first artist on the stage was definitively a warming-up. An older man with a white hat and a badly tuned guitar didn't really put the guests in the right mood. The second...More

Is such an amazing traditional home-restaurant, better than many 4 stars restaurant here in Dubai. The food is just something else, additional the live music just makes the food taste better. If you go to Praia then definitely this a must place to visit.

This remains a remarkable place, certainly one of the "must do's" when in Praia. Personnel at Quintal da Musica will do their utmost to make sure guests feel well and live up to their expectations. Make sure you arrive there early or get reservations timely...
