Myself and a friend stopped by for supper and both were pleased with our food and service. Even though it was raining out we could still enjoy eating outside under their patio rooftop

I've never been let down with the menu selections here. My favorite is the shrimps/camaroes "VG". I was told that the VG meant large shrimp, which these were. The caipirinhas were not the best, but I've had worse. Service was excellent. A bit pricey, two...people with a couple of drinks will probably run over Rs300. Indoor and outdoor seating on two levels. The outdoor seating overlooks the beachfront walk which offers a nice view day or night. It is convenient and easy to walk to from most of the beachfront hotels. Parking can be problematic, especially in the evening. I prefer to take a taxi if I'm staying at an off beach hotel.More

Great place to sit and people watch. Has an English menu as well which always helps. A little more expensive than restaurants down the side streets.

The atmosphere/ambience adds real value to this restaurant in addition to the fantastic variety of food.

Durval has been in Macae across form the Cavalieros beach since I have been travelling here, more than 14 years.... the service and atmosphere are top notch there. Their food is great whether meat, fish or bar snacks. At Durval no one feels alone, the...patrons are made to feel at home.More

Extensive menu offers ample opportunity to quench any craving with a side of ice cold beer. Tends to be a place with enough people to feel like you're not eating alone but not enough to cause a wait or a noise disturbance. Great first spot...to visit on your tour of Cavaleiros.More

I stayed in Macae for 2 weeks for work so I had to get food daily. My favorite place for dinner was Durval primarily for the taste and secondly for the choices to choose from. It was money well spent. The ambience was nice and...the service was great.More

This place is nice and most popular between people that are not Brazilians. Food is really good and atmosphere is on very nice level. Price is higher then other restaurants near by (a part from Ilhote Sol)/ place is always full with people and service...is quick.More
