“Excellent Fish”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

I was taken here by friends while visiting for business. Their specialty, like many of the other people mentioned, is the Tambaqui Ribs. They are amazing. They are very meaty and very tasty. I'd recommend being careful of how much food you order because they bring you a lot here.

“Tambaqui Ribs - yes, fish ribs, typical from Manaus!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Went there with group of co-workers to have what's best on the region... Tambaqui Ribs!

Tambaqui is a typical fish from the region, giant one, from the river. The fish is so giant that you eat its ribs. It's delicious and has got a lot of meat.

It's a typical restaurant with a very, very simply atmosphere. Worths a visit.

They have a stuffed fish in real size so you can see what you are eating. Great experience. You can only have this kind of fish in this region. If you go to SP to ask in some specialized place you will pay the price... So enjoy!

“Feel like a local in Manaos”
Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

Our host at the guesthouse recommended we go to this place for dinner. He even wrote down which dishes he suggests we try.

After a disapointing tour of the Amazon we needed some comfort to restore our faith in Manaos and this place did mot disappoint. The beer is served ice cold, the food is flavorful and the fish is beautifully cooked. Go for the grilled fish rather than fried.

This place my have a simple appearance but it's surprisingly nice.

“Relaxed alfresco fish specialty institution”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

We stayed at a resort 3 hours outside of Manaus, and had to spend half a day in a rather bland Manaus before we catch the flight at 4pm back to Sao Paulo. After seeing the manatees at the park and the meeting of the waters, this fish restaurant was a perfect place for a relaxing lunch of great fish dishes and beer chilled in ice buckets.

“local seafood dishes”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Corner fish restaurant found in Praca 14 has plenty of locals enjoying reasonably priced seafood dishes. They have wood curvings of manatee, Pirarucu, peacock sea bass and other fresh fishes all over the walls and has a whole big Tambaqui in the freezer.

The biggest fresh water fishes found only in the Amazon – Pirarucu and Tambaqui – has white chewy meat are prepared many different ways.

Not a 5 star or Michelin rated restaurant. Has plastic chairs but is Clean, with excellent and Even if waiters do not speak English they gave friendly service. I think prices are reasonable. Has inside and outside seating. Accepts credit card.

No service charge in the final bill.
