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!

During our time in Jeri we tried as many restaurants as possible. We always came back to this one; it turned out to be our favorite. In most of the other places we found one thing quite peculiar: most of the time the starters tasted great but the main course was pretty weak. Not at Pimento Verde. Everything we tried... More

Good food and nice staff. Some plates are individuals (pastas and risottos) and other are for two (fish, meat). They have also the week menu with other dishes that you can choose. We ordered for individual dishes and it was enough for us, good size of portion. Only the price was a little bit high for a pasta.

This is a simple place that serves good food. Nothing fancy, simple dishes with fresh ingredients. The place is somewhat cramped. Service is efficient and businesslike, not particularly friendly. Go for the food, this should be enough.

Our dinner in Pimenta Verde was absolutely delicious! My husband and I shared the shrimp curry, with rice and vegetables, and all was really good. I had a beer and my husband a caipirinha which he said was the best he's ever had. Service was great, friendly and helpful staff. And the price was really reasonable. I highly recommend!

This restaurant has a few things going against it : it's located in a busy corner, it's too noisy and the food takes forever to arrive (always ). But when it comes. ..what always feast for your taste buds! And the bier is always perfectly cold!

very well service at least at the 1st floor, where we seated. A nice lady wearing glasses served us very well. Not only the local food, but also the wine and the price was very reasonable. it is one of the restaurants to try while visiting the town.

The friendly staff greeted us, spoke English and bought us menus and drinks whilst we waited to be seated at this busy restaurant. I had seafood salad and my friend had fish. Both were delicious. My only comment was they up sized my entree to a main in the language confusion but he'll I ate it as it was so... More

The restaurant Pimenta Verde, won me over by the simplicity of the dishes and also the sophistication of flavors. I had the opportunity to taste the fish in the crust, just wonderful. The owner of the Pimenta Verde: Sonia, is welcoming and makes you feel at home. All the staff a very friendly. Only negative point is that it takes... More

Best restaurant in town (according to long term visitors). The ceviche is amazing as well as most of the dishes on the menu. Staff is nice and welcoming. Owner is eager to share her experiences and good mood. Prices are above average.
