We had dinner here based on a recommendation from our tour booking agency and because it had good TA reviews. While they don't speak English, they do have an English menu. You can just connect to their wifi and use a translator for assistance in communicating. Though their service was good, I wouldn't say the food was anything special and... More

After four days in the jungle eating rice and beans I couldn't wait for real food. I played it safe and got the filet and fries and salad. The people are very nice and speak english and the meat was well prepared. They also have a cute souvenir shop and the restaurant has a pleasant garden atmosphere.

Had the best food we've had in Brazil so far (having been to both Rio and the Pantanal). The fish (chefs special) was absolutely fabulous and so fresh and tender. The portions were generous and the service great. Already as we left the restaurant we were planning our visit to go back the next day
