Chica Pitanga


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2019 Winner

Location and contact

Com proposta inovadora e reformando conceitos, o Chica Pitanga tornou-se referência. Pautado no desenvolvimento da gastronomia brasileira, o Restaurante oferece vastíssima variedade, com ênfase em pescados e frutos do mar. Atendendo ao conceito de refeição leve, propicia ao cliente amplo buffet de saladas, rico na composição de folhosos nobres, legumes e frutas. A valorização da comida regional dá-se com a utilização de receitas próprias, que destacam o sabor tão específico da culinária nordestina. A mesa internacional tem particular foco na cozinha portuguesa. A isso, contribuiu a ascendência dos que conceberam e administram a Casa. Aos notórios pratos portugueses somaram-se o jeito, a arte
