Friendly staff, and no fancy decoration at all, actually, it seems to be a restaurant from the 90's. Don't go there for anything but good fish. Price for the fish fillet is high because it is for one person. If you ask for the "fish"...More

I was taken here by friends while visiting for business. Their specialty, like many of the other people mentioned, is the Tambaqui Ribs. They are amazing. They are very meaty and very tasty. I'd recommend being careful of how much food you order because they...More

Our host at the guesthouse recommended we go to this place for dinner. He even wrote down which dishes he suggests we try. After a disapointing tour of the Amazon we needed some comfort to restore our faith in Manaos and this place did mot...More
