Excellent seafood with beautiful set-up. We enjoyed the tuna and mezze as starters and then mahi mahi plus prawn pasta. Wine list is short but ok. Good service.

I had a nice time with my friends in Fortaleza. It was amazing because of the hospitality. I have ordered Browne. The taste was blasted me. And I should tell about the environment. I felt romantic.
