Restaurant in the open air. Very cozy place to eat with live music and dancers! It seems to be a very well known place so if you want to be sure of a table, it is best to make a reservation.

The place is decorated with lots of love to detail and it's easy to feel at home. The staff is friendly and coffee and fresh juices and cocktails delicious. I cannot actually judge the taste of the food as we considered it very overpriced. But...it is a great place to get some peace, silence and shade during a crowded and hot day in Mindelo.More

The atmosphere is great, the food tastes delicious and every night from 7pm they have live music and dance. We really enjoyed it here and will definitely come again.

Great food — with lots of options for vegetarians. Went there twice and it was delicious both times.

Friendly and surprisingly very fast service, good food, and very good athmosphere thanks to the live music and dance. Drinks are nothing special but still good enough to have a good night out.

This restaurant has a very pleasant terrace in the courtyard of the beautiful colonial building of the Alliance Française. The food is good, the service was rather slow - the staff very nice, but everything took time and they even forgot to bring the appetizers....It's worth it for the place and the food is tasty - when it finally arrives.More

The atmosphere and locations is really nice. I am vegetarian and I went there because it was highly recommented for its vegetarian dishes. I ate some tomato Pasta with goat cheese - sadly I found some slices of fish (probably tuna in it)...... The dish...costs 800cve, which is really high for CV, and the dish is not worth the high price. Specially when I have fish in my meat. The weighters did a rare minimum and weren´t really motivated or friendy. So I can NOT reccomend this place. There are other nice places in Mindelo, specially when you go to the local restaurants.More

The menu is good, it’s different and interesting. Lots of traditional offerings and tasty combos - The food was good quality and the environment is in theory very nice. They just happened to be rebuilding it when we were there and the place was consumed...in clouds of dust! I also asked about the fish of the day, decided against it, pointed to chicken on the menu and got the fish. Staff are polite and attentiveMore
