First meal in Bonito - wonderful

A very beautiful place with wonderful food. Regional food with delicious fresh water fishes from the Pantanal region. Very good Cairpiroska with typical local fruit. A place to be in Bonito. Worth the price and the visit to the nearby shop.

Best restaurant in town. From the menu, any dish made with local fish is valid. You can share the plates. The environment is nice.

Casa do João was a great surprise in our Bonito stay! The restaurant serves typical Pantanal foods, especially exquisite sweetwater fishes, dry meat, capirinhas made by fruits from Pantanal, and a fantastic guavira fruit petit-gateau. The place is rustic-chic, the staff is very dedicated, service is fast, and João and Felipe, the owners, make you feel at home. In our... More

Excellent restaurant with local delights. You know when the food is good when the clients are all local Brazilian tourists. Try some of the fish receipts! Drink the ice cold beer it's a must!
