The only place in town serving up delicious Brazillian seafood right in front of the beach. Great drinks, solid food, amazing atmosphere, service with a smile and a great view. Go check it out, have a mojito, and enjoy.

This restaurant/bar is absolutely the best ! It’s located right on the beach. We watched a amazing sunset from our table. The people who work there are super friendly and fast. Food and drinks were to die for. Great Brazilian food and cocktails.

Or enjoy our Deep Tuesday which is a weekly sunset beach party with Dj's . We are open Monday to Saturday 10 am to 1o pm ! CLOSED on SUNDAYS. Also the restaurant only operates from Dec. to April due to weather conditions.
