The fish dishes and the cheese with honey dessert (must have) were good. Service was slow as usual for Brazil. The live entertainment started to sing for the evening hours, just when we asked for the check. The check included a fee for the entertainment even though we were just leaving so check your bill.

The macaxeira is excellent. We order the Barcaxeira moqueca too, and it was amazing. But all, including the beverages, took an eternity to come!

It's a nice place with good live music. The food is good but nothing extraordinary. The service was also good but the kitchen mistook my order and I had to wait about 20 min more than the other people at my table and ate when everybody had nearly finished their food. Toilets are ok. The restaurant provide children with pencils and paper in case they want to make a nice coloring while mum and dad enjoy their caipirinhas.

We did our research on trip advisor and decided this was the place for lunch when we arrived. It was half full with a decent number of wait staff around. No one offered to seat us so we took our own seats and collected menus to choose. We decided on drinks and food but still no service. We managed to grab one of the staff who ran away when we made contact (in portuguese) the next waitress said we had to wait for another waiter so we left. In the UK or USA when staff see unhappy people leaving they usually try and persuade them to stay etc here the just watched as if we were in the wrong

Don't make the simple installations make you wrong: Barcaxeira is the best place in Porto de Galinhas to have the real taste of regional Brazilian food. Nice for children's (they have a special menu for them) and parents, maybe the time to have the order ready is too much (more than 20 minutes) because the natural way they prepare the courses but you will not get disappointed. Try the Moqueca de Peixe e Camarao: fantastic.
