We had an octopus salad appetizer which was delicious, and then ate local fish in their caper sauce, which was also delicious. The owner is a cute woman who doesn't speak much English but it's better than you expect. We went here for our first night in Jeri and have been here for 5 days so far and it tops... More

We had sharing starters, quality was brilliant especially the ceviche. Mango prawn curry for main course was incredible! Lovely wine, good location and great staff.

Unfortunately we had bad luck with the service. Nothing came at the right time ( drinks well after the starter), orders forgotten, etc. We had a moqueca wich was just average and we had definitely better caipirinha before. Would not go again.

You eat from God. I enjoyed pasta and meat dishes paired with delicious wines. Also interesting are the starters and the side dishes or sauces. Very good bread from what I understood him produce them. Do not go to throw around your money, remember that "we are what we eat .....". The service was polite, clean and professional. What else?

We attend Pimienta Verde driven by the excellent comments read here. We went early on a week day of August, and were one of the first customers. We ordered Moqueca de peixe for two (a fish stew) and it was disapointing and expensive. The fish ration was not a complete slice of fish, and composed of 3 small (though thick)... More

I was there twice during my stay in Jeri and both times food was excellent! They have got plenty of options and portions are big. If you are a solo traveller, as I am, they have dishes for one person (starters, pasta, risotto), but they are also ok with giving you half portion of some of the ones for 2... More

Friendly staff and delicious food. The individual dishes are enough for a hungry person! The chef's suggestions are Delicious and Cheap. Been there three or four times. Two thumbs up!

It is not as fantastic as the comments. The price is above the average, the time to be served is really long, the beef was too cooked, beware to specify the cooking you like.

Another top location. Food is perfect, the servants friendly and even try to communicate in English despite talking Portuguese ... Prices are good value for money .... A must try restaurant!
