We decided to have dinner twice at this restaurant which has a lovely staff. Fish with pineapple is super tasty and shrimp bobo as well. The dishes are very well served. “Tangerina” caipirinha is great. Great atmosphere, not loud music, very calm. At the end...More

We've had the Tropical Grilled Fish and the Fish and Seafood Moqueca. Really good. Drinks like Caipirinha are quite expensive and not worthy in terms of cost-benefits.

OMG… the fish dish we had was the best ever yet in those years of my life… can´t remember the type of fish, only remember that it was a local one… fantastic done. Clean, a lot of choice, quiet and well served. Try it.

We had a very good time at Cacau. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was excellent. The waitress suggested a mix of appetizer and it was delicious. Then we had "moqueca" which was so fresh and well done. We definitely would go there again.

At the very end of Quadrado, this place has a fabulous atmosphere, good service and great food. Overpriced, like every other place in the Quadrado.
