Yes, you've seen it on American TV, yes, there are 2000+ reviews on Trip Advisor, but, yes, you really must go to Banzeiro when in Manaus (be sure to reserve ahead!). I was a solo traveler and in some places you don't get the best service, but at Banzeiro, I had excellent service. First, the hostess (who spoke very good... More

This is a fantastic restaurant!! The food is traditional, delicious and excellent value for money, as most of dishes is good for two pax. They have in their menu, local fish from the Amazon region, so worth trying one of those!!! Also, they have a good wine list! The staff were friendly and efficient. Would not hesitate to recommend this... More

Great food: Tambaqui and Pirarucu up to expectations. The surprise was to drink local Chardonnay produced by Liz Argenta. Superb - but only available in Brazil

The restaurant has great food, quality, little overdone. Expensive but we thought its worth it. Food kind if regional, Brazilian. Glad we went.

The best restaurant in Manaus. We had a dish called "Pirarucu Amazônico". A misture of sweet and salty. Very exotic, but wonderful. They have also the traditional dishes, typical for the region.

This is one of the few restaurants in Manaus with a highly skilled chef who prepares food carefully and presents it eloquently - this was said to me by another chef in the city and we would agree that this restaurant has a high standard of service in the neighbourhood. The restaurant is said to be in an unsavoury neighbourhood... More

Smart restaurant with good attempt at chic. Lovely appetiser and starter, main course OK, the sardines were very nice. Good wine. Staff were delightful and decor great. Expensive, but ticked the boxes for us. There does not seem to be much fine dinning in Manaus and for us this was a very welcome oasis.

You pick you food and weigh it. Its great if you don't know Portuguese. Food was very good and price was cheap. Good atmosphere and nice decor. Off the beaten path so you would need to drive here

I have chosen the pirarucu amazonico and it was just perfect. First of all the service was excellent! I asked many questions about the different ingredients of their drinks and the waitress even brought me one of the ingredients to see and smell! Then as I was alone she suggested me the smaller options. The food took a little to... More
