The restaurant is very big and the staff very friendly. It is a nice place to go with friends; however, it is very noisy and it can be hard to carry on a conversation. We had the "moqueca", which was served very quickly and was very good. It is supposed to be a dish for two, but it was enough... More

I have been to this restaurant with my family and we loved it. You should try the pastel de siri and camarao internacional. Great desserts as well.

The restaurant has a good diversity of food and the flavor is OK but the atmosphere is awful. The place is incredible huge and noisy, not a good place to be with friends.

A good place to eat some crabs and drink some beer. Not that expensive, but really crowded on weekends.

This place was recommended by the taxi driver, the restaurant is quite large and has a interior playground with atrction for little ones that Is perfect meanwhile you wait for you Moqueca that takes about an hour to be served. So make sure to order some appetizers that they have a great shrimp plate and cold Atlantic beer

I have been to this restaurant multiple times. I find the food to be flavorful and well seasoned. However, I usually go there for lunch after two not-so-good experiences during dinner time. The fact is that this restaurant gets really packed in the evening! When that happens, of course, it gets noisy and the service tends to be much slower.... More

If you are looking for seafood in Vitoria then this is the place to go. It has the best Polvo na Manteiga (Octopus in butter) that I have found in Vitoria or Vila Velha. The dish came in a heated pot and the butter was still bubbling. The taste was to die for and it hadnt been overcooked which is... More

Order anything from the menu... You won't be disappointed. Everything is very tasty! If youvenjoy crabs, eat them Brazillian style: with your hands and a moist towel to keep mouth and wrists clean...
