We'd come here every time we visited Guaruja and were usually pleasantly surprised. Unfortunately, the last two visits were deeply disappointing.

My wife and I have eaten once a month in this restaurant. Meals have good taste. Price is not cheap, but if you have a nice quality and good customer service, have lunch there. I recommend it!

We had the Caldeirada for 4 people and it was delicious. The fish seemed very fresh and we would definitely go back.
