Variety is their strong point, with dozens of different types of local food. Quality is not the mais concern, but you can have a very decent meal there.

This restaurant has the best tradicional, regional food in the entire city. I strongly recommend you to ask a "cajá" juice, eat a "tapioca" and enjoy the tradicional setting.

If you're looking for real regional food from the northeast of Brazil, that's the place to go! The variety is great, quality too. There's a little park for small kids to play. I could eat there every day!!

From the environment to the selection of the dishes, everything in this restaurant makes you feel like you are in a typical 18th century local farm house.
