This is one of my favourite restaurantes in the Barra Area. Sometimes I get tired of the Churrascarias and this fish restaurant is exceptional for a reasonable price.

This restaurant specializes in pintado, a meaty fish like grouper. They dust the fish fillets in parmesan and wrap on a churrasco (Brazilian barbecue, or churrasco) spear, and grill. You choose your side dishes--we chose alla Meuniere, with broccoli rice (green and delicious), potatoes and a butter sauce with small shrimp, mushrooms and large caper berries. A great value and...

A sea view restaurant but nothing special. Price not high but fair based on food quality. Service medium level also. If you are looking for good food and special service this is not the place. If you are looking for medium price and standard fish it's fine.

I really didn't know what to expect since we did not understand the menu, but was pleasantly surprised. We ordered the grilled sole with mushrooms, shrimp and capers. It was a large portion for two people and it was quite tasty. Nice and close to the grand Hyatt where we were staying.

My girfriend and I went to Toca da Traíra to have dinner and we love it. We were 4 people and had Bobó de Camarão (shrimps) and pintado na brasa (roasted fish) and it was all delicious. Highly recommend after a day at Praia da Barra. Service was also good.

If you like luxus, you won t find it here. It is a simple restaurant by the sea. The waiters have not been adequately trained. But the food is so good! Try the Grilled Pintado with cheese sauce and you will love it!

This restaurant is located at the beach in the Barra section of Rio. Great views and good seafood. The service was good and the atmosphere too. I will go back for the seafood as I was very happy with my meal. The varieties of fish and means of preparation ensured there are options for everyone - even beef if you're... More

You must pay attention because it only worth if you buy a discount coupon on a site before, because you'll spend a lot to feel satisfied.
