Good place to go if you have kids, they have a swimming pool from them to swim while you enjoy your lunch. Good service, decent food. The price range is about the same as most places in town, serving similar dishes - about R$ 140,00 for a dish for two.

Location was fantastic and there was decent live music. However the food was average. The coconuts are fresh but opened the day before; so did not taste right. Go for the location.

Thank you for rating us. We´re happy that you had a nice experience in our restaurant. The reason why we take the shell out of the coconut a day before is to put it in the refrigerator to serv you a cold coconut, but if you had said the waiter that preferred a natural coconut certainly we´d served you as...

We were staying in a pousada just beside this restaurant; as a result we visited it for a quick bite to eat. The food was good but I was put off the place by the amount of rubbish in the floor. The cutlery is served in plastic wrapping and there was so much of this discarded waste blowing around it... More

Don't let appearances deceive you this is top notch first class dining in an amazing setting with great service and quite simply some of the best food I've had in Brazil !! The shrimps in pineapple is worth the airfare alone (From the UK) ! Enjoy !!

Delicious food, fast and friendly service with a beautiful view of the beach what more could you ask for especially if you love outdoor dinning as much as I do. I had the Carne do Sol, very tasty and well prepared. The Live Music was also a plus adding a nice atmosphere to the place.

That's the best option in the middle of your buggy tour and / or coming back from Pontal do Maracaípe! Yes, there is a pool as part of the restaurant where you may stay while you wait for the very good food at reasonable prices... Furthermore, take your time with good live music!

Maracaipe is one of the stops - for lunch - on the standard buggy tour of Porto de Galinhas. It's the restaurant closest to the beach, and it has a private pool to swim in and also hammocks by the tables. The view is very nice, but we were disappointed that there were no restaurants right on the beach at... More
