There´s a incredible variety of fishes, with many ways of preparation, almost all very good, like alligator and fresh water stingray. Many experiences in one place.

This is one place that you must go while in Pantanal Region. The outside is everything but luxurious, does not even have a parking lot for cars, I had trouble finding it, but the google maps address is correct, so, just trust it. Aside of that, the place gives you one of the best cosine experience that are available out... More

It was the first time I tried alligator meat and stingray's. Alligator's texture was nice but it was a bit bland. It is very cool to eat a fish rodízio because the most common to see it's beef and chicken. The waiter brings a whole fish ( head and tail ) and he cuts a piece of it for you... More

The best Fish place to eat in Cuiabá!! The variety of fish is incredible! All the fishes are from the Pantanal rivers! Dourado, Pirarucu, piraputanga, and my Favorite! Ventrecha de Pacu! They also serve alligator meet, fish sausages etc, but I've tried only the fishes that have scales...

The variety of fishes is amazing... This is a place everyone should eat at least once to know the how Brazilians fresh water fishes taste. The Rodizio way will let you taste different types of fish cooked in different ways. Not cheap, but realy worth the money spent! If you have kids... they have a playground with the attending to...

The rodizio way of eating may be new to some people. It's a buffet, but instead of queueing up to stuff your plate, the servers come by your table and offer the different dishes. I lost count of all the different delicious fish dishes when we were there for lunch a few days ago. From whole fried river fish to... More

The best way to eat is the "Rodizio de peixe", fish from the Amazon region, and fish from the Pantanal region. Cooked, fried, or on the grill, a great experience. The locals lunch and dine here.

Yes. All the river fish you can eat. Cooked amazing and the variety is incredible. Not cheap.. payed about 125 reals a person with a drink but for the quality and quantity of amazing food it was worth every penny. Try the alligator sausage and make sure to try the 3 types of hot sauce!
