The food is really good, and the resturant is located on the beach at a lovely spot. However, it is pretty expensive compared to Brazil and South Americal in general. But if you came to a short vacation (I traveled 4 months), don't miss this place.

It was our last meal in the island. We only had one hour to eat if we wanted to get to the boat on time. The waitress promised the food would be ready in twenty minutes, and it really was. We had grilled sole with real fries (not the frozen, pre cooked stuff, but fries like my mother used to... More

We went here for my birthday and my girlfriend organised a cake with them. They were able to source a cake and put candles on for me which was a great touch. The music and atmosphere was great and the seafood was really nice

Very tasteful dishes especially the seafood Moqueca.The price is a bit high but saying that some of the dishes for two would feed three or even four if you are having entrees. The service is very friendly and the setting right on the beach makes it a lovely setting.

Lovely food, very tasty and enormous portions. Kept on eating even when already full because it was so good. Nice atmosphere and live bossa nova/ samba music. Had a great time there.

The restaurant is very famous and I think it's the best restaurant on the island. The portions are huge and for 2 people, so if you are only 2 people you have to eat the same food over and over. Our selection was okay (shrimp in coconut milk) but I was expecting much better.

Recommend getting a table on the beach with some lovely cocktails! The dishes are very generous and could easily feed 3. The seafood pasta was a highlight.

We came here for dinner and sat on one of the beach tables to enjoy a wonderful moqueca de peixe. The flavours were excellent and the portions substantial - you won't be hungry after eating here! Nice drinks as well, and because it's right on the beach it's worth taking your time to relax and enjoy the meal slowly -... More

Those moaning about a double service charge or an extra 12 reais on the end bill ....its for the musician who plays all night so don't be tight!! Food was lovely, not over priced compared to Rio or Fernando De Noronha. Dishes for two are big but anyone who hasn't eaten since midday or breakfast would demolish then between them... More
