We booked a tour of Manaus and it concluded with dinner in this restaurant, recommended by our guide. It was delicious, the meal really was excellent. Dishes on the menu are for 2 people, but they will do a 1 person portion if you wish. Our waiter spoke very good English and was extremely helpful when advising us on the menu which was all in Portuguese. We went for an incredible pirarucu dish. The service was great, setting was lovely and the bill was reasonable.

Given the experienced with bad service in the region, we were impressed here.
Hd a party of 16 with 6 children and we managed to sit in less than an hour and the waiters got all the orders right.

The costela de tambaqui is a great dish. Should be tried.
No wonder this place has been consistently been ranked best restaurant in Manaus over the past years.

Beware, tourist guides will try to take you somewhere else. Possibly because of their comission, but if you want to experience great food, this is the place to go

The tambaqui ribs are amazing and the fruit juices very nice as well! The fish pastries We ate as starters were very tasty! It is expensive, but worth it!

We arrived early for lunch after a morning sightseeing into a pleasant, coolly modern room
which quickly filled up. Our very helpful waiter who had little English to match our zero Portuguese guided us through the menu which contained many fishes, all Amazonian, which we had met for the first time morning in the fish market. A peculiar is that all starters and mains are for 2. We had freshwater prawns in garlic and oil preceded by a delicious fish soup amuse bouche. This was followed by tamoqui cutlets accompanied by a:-) vegetable risotto and manioc with eggs. All the food was delicious, beautifully and unfussily presented with attentive but in obtrusive service. This was one of the best fish meals I have ever enjoyed and ranks with Sheekey or Scott's in London
