We walked by the window looking for a place to eat. We were about to walk away when one of the owners spotted us and came out to ask if she could explain the menu. Without feel pressured, we were sold and came in. The staff were very friendly! The owner kept working with us to make sure we were... More

Bobó de Camarão was excellent, best we ever had. The chef came to our table twice for a chat and the service was speedy. Prices were even lower at Rua Mucuge.

Humble place, no fancy decoration, with surprisingly good dishes. Fresh and quality are the synonymous for the restricted options.

The most famous "prato ffeito " in Arraial. Prato feito means your dish will come served from the kitchen. But don't worry. Only the best sea food from the region and the best service you will find here. Also, the best cost benefit arround. Paulo and his family are always arround.

I have been in this restaurant 20 years ago. The moqueca hasn't changed, neither the owner's kindness or the fair price! Really reccomend it! Worth the line!

Simple restaurant, limited options (something Brazilians call "prato feito" which is a meal made with a little bit of salad, rice, beans, fries (or something to that effect ) and the main ingredient you get to choose among fish, shrimps, beef, chicken... The name in portuguese means literally "done dish" because it's one serving in a plate. The food is... More

No atmosphere. Ordinary food. No reason to go. I do not understand the ratings! Had many good meals in town and this was by far the worse.
