We tried Carne del Sol, the dishes are quite big, always to share, fresh juices are super recommendable! Its a bit pricy, for the same range of price I would choose Camaroes over this restaurant. The service was great, the have shuttle free service form the hotel and to the hotel, this was very convenient!

This restaurante serves shrimp and many other foods (for those who don't like seafood, this is very convenient) with an excellent cost-benefit ratio. The food is delicious, and this particular sauce made with a regional fruit is outstanding. It's as comfortable indoors, as in the balcony. Located in Ponta Negra, it's a walking distance from the arts and crafts market,... More

As a solo traveler, you are looking for something convenient, something tasty, something that satisfies what you miss when travel alone. This fit the bill. When I was there, van after van of people came into the restaurant - helps when the restaurant offers free transportation. My meal of fried chicken steak, french fries and banana was good. After having... More

Tripadvisor ranks Farofa in its top 1% of Natal restaurants; Frommers mentions it as 1 of 5 worthwhile restaurants. It extols the carne de sol. So we tried it, of course. Wonderful outdoor dining, relaxed atmosphere. The 4 of us had great conversations. We all ordered the carne de sol (which is not on the english menu). Two of us... More

I read good reviews on this place and I am not sure what i expected. We got the Filé a Parmeggiana and the meat was kind of raw and overall underwhelming and overpriced. As for the dessert, a chocolate mousse, they didn't even bother taking off the nutritional tab off the plastic cup. If I want store bought mousse, I... More

An all over good restaurant if you are out for a good meal and a releaxed atmoshere. Not a scenic spot, but it look like the brazilans like the spot/place a lot?
