Went for lunch with family, recomended by a family member. Food we ate was great, we chose the waiters recomendation from the festival of food menu, a type of yellow fish served with fried potatoes and a cream corn sauce. It was very tasty and great value also! We will return!

Full of locals patronizing this restaurant.
A few kilometers from the cruise port and about 15-20 Reales one way by Taxi to the Jatiuca District.
Has outdoor and indoor seating. Choose live crabs from a tub. 6.9 Reales each cooked in salt and water; or 4 live crabs cooked in coconut oil for 41 Reales and has side dish of rice.
Makes a good Caipirinhas for 5 Reales.
Nobody speaks English but are otherwise very accommodating and friendly, helps you pick dishes in either Portugese or English menu. Quick service and seems to have reasonable price.

I was with my family on this restaurant and we ate a delicious dish called the name of the restaurant, Peixarão. There is a great waiting room to the client while the food was been prepared with big TV's, good fans making the air more refreshing. It is always full, it means that the food is really good, and the treatment is fast and enjoyable. The kids will like very much because there are aquariums with alive crabs because the client can choose the crab they would like to eat, it is also a entertainment for them.
