Was there for lunch and had a bad experience, the rise of my dish was bad and oysters tasted like fresh water... not good at all.

We arrived around 1pm on a cloudy, windy Thursday afternoon. There were very few clients there. The waiter was very friendly and we soon chose "Badejo à moda do chefe" which is whiting with shrimp and roasted with cheese and potatoes. Our only complaint was that he promised the dish would be ready in 20 minutes and it took 40... More

This place does very good seafood. We got a plate for two people and the portions were huge and very good value. We even took away the left overs. The staff were very friendly and happy to recommend dishes. The coffee was excellent also.

The food is good, but the restaurant is expensive for what it serves. Meals for 2 people are great too, should be more consistent with normal portions.

Thank Regina S

The Restauraante Rascal's has the beginning of his career 27 years ago, when still young, Joao Carlos de Oliveira, the cheff and businessman John Rascal as is known, decided to open in an old house of his Father in paradise, and hitherto little trendy, Massaguacu Beach on the northern coast of Sao Paulo, a small restaurant by the sea. Born entrepreneur, John Rascal, had no experience ne nhuma kitchen (besides having always accompanied her mother, Dona Cida, preparing delicious and fancy recipes caicara cuisine, which was part of the daily lives of your family). But against departure, knew all about fish. John also says that his first adventures in the kitchen, came the need, when at age 15 he moved to a republic in Sao Jose dos Campos, in order to finish his studies, living with boys his age are not cook, certainly would not have what to eat. The son and grandson of large and renowned fishermen caicara community massguacu Beach, John caicara worked since he was 12 years old in a fish shop, located in the grounds where today is the Rascal's Restaurant, initially worked with the Father, but still young at 17 took over the business and was improving every day and taking more taste for his vast knowledge in fish. He worked for years in your fishmonger, known and famous in the city and also for the few tourists, today mostly patrons of the restaurant, who has attended beach Massguacu. So the need arises again in the john of life, and in December 1986 already 27 years, two children, a vast knowledge on fish and some adventures in the kitchen, John decides to open the Rascal Rascal's Restaurant. With the entrepreneurial vision and with much effort john pioneered and turned the former home of his parents in a small restaurant by the sea, to serve fried fish portions and prawns plus some typical local dishes such as Sea Blue (fish with fish sauce Green Banana). And, as envisioned by the young entrepreneur, the inauguration was a success! The success of the pioneering project was so great that soon in its first months of operation, John Rascal, faced some operational problems due to excess demand and lack of experience with this type of business. At the same time, john caicara, by coincidence or fate, met a cook who had just become unemployed, the mining matuto Alcibiades, and from that meeting was initiated to the success achieved in two and half decades, of Rascal's Restaurant. John joined all their knowledge in fish and seafood, impeccable knowledge in the art cooking that had the late Alcibiades, the Bida, as it was known. And together, exchanging ideas and knowledge and learning between them, set up a different menu with popular and traditional dishes today. John learned so much about the Bida, which today is one of the most known and respected leaders in the region. The partnership was so successful that soon the Rascal's Restaurant has become a benchmark and the most traditional and renowned restaurant in town, known by both tasty dishes offered to customers as friends to be situated in one of the most beautiful beaches of the north coast. Recognized for excellence in cooking and for keeping alive the customs and traditions of caicara people, Rrestaurante Rascal's just turned 27 years of great battles, victories, growth and well-deserved recognition of your brand. Today the restaurant has beyond the hall know, won with much effort and work, an incomparable structure in the region, in addition to having a team always willing to give their best, with business objectives by providing quality both in our products as in your care and affection the most valuable asset of the company, its customers friends.
