It's the chic place around here, the service depends on the attendant, the food is all very good, the price is high but if you're in vacation it's worth the extra " real".

Wonderful oues of any kind of flavours. It is a good place to relax and taste some great dessert at the end of a day in the beach.

it is not a place for you to have traditional bahian dishes, although there are dishes with local flavors. But that is fine because there are loads of places with traditional menus, but this one is just the nicest / no-brainier / affordable / tastier that we found.

We ate "empanadas", which were too small for the price they costed, and not so tasteful as it should be for such a high value.

So-so service, nice outdoor seating with passing crowds. Lots of variety on the menu, decent sandwiches. Try the ice cream in an adjoining varanda = creamy with some good fruit flavors.

Awesome bakery, with just about the best chocolate croissant in the world, make sure to ask them to serve it hot!! The other doces and cakes are fab too! And the fresh baked bread simply heavenly! I skipped my breakfast in my hotel every day, just for Tango, that's how you start your day in Praia do Forte.

The combos are excellent and location is also good, off the beaten track but still close to main attraction and just 10 minutes walking from the beach. The most special desert is the Bolo de Tapioca, be sure not to miss it ...

Nice looking cafe but it took 20 minutes to get a simple juice. Perhaps it was an off night but I saw other customers looking annoyed as well with their wait time. Better staff would improve the rating.
