Go with a friend if you plan to eat as the plates are large. Eat local food for the best. If you sit outside expect to be bugged to buy things, if you can't say no easily sit inside. Good cold beer good Pateis and great muqueca. Service is weak.

A very nice and original place. Excellent caipirinhas. Excellent (and huge pizzas). The 'must`is the "Sabores do Maranhão" dish! Good for sharing!

If you enjoy the atmosphere of the place you should sit there for a while, drink something and listen to some brazilian music. Its good. Oh, beware the hippies will bug you to buy their stuff.

This restaurant is the establishment of the Old Town. Good traditional cuisine, for an appropriate price. Most nights they have live music, but the choice of music and musicians was rather bland.
