This is the *real* Northeastern food, delicious, well served, an amazing experience. Do try the paçoca and pirão de queijo coalho with carne de sol filet. The service is very good and the price is totally reasonable. I'll definitely come back.

Nice place to try local dried meat in assorted types, although the meat came more cooked than what we asked for. Thumbs up for the opportunity to try out many traditional dishes from this brazilian region: paçoca, pirão de queijo, queijo coalho, green beans and many others. The variety of serving sizes is also a plus. The waiter was kind,... More

That was my worst experience ever, in whole Brazil. I went there with my family on Easter Monday("Tiradentes " holiday) for a nice lunch, but we got the opposite...upon arrival, no one came to sit us a table...we had to ask 4 times and wait 30 minutes for a single bottle of beer...1:30 hours after ordering food, the dishes weren't...

No one should visit Brazilian Northeast city without trying the famous "Carne de Sol". And Tabua de Carne makes the best Carne de Sol in Joao Pessoa and Natal. And the entrees are enough for 2 to 3 people.

This restaurant has very good food (especially the typical cut they call "carne de sol") and the ambient has a very nice decoration with details in wood. One thing they need to improve is the parking space... Very limited causing some trouble. Also, price is a bit high in comparison to other restaurants of the same type.

Thank engped
