“Very very good - a true chef with fine, high end product...”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

It's far from the centre of town, close to the pousadas in the bush past Rua Praia Amor in the bush where we stayed... but worth the walk... On normal nights, the menu is compact but made up of interesting dishes that are colorful and rich with good portions - the presentation is good... Decent value - everything is costly in Brazil... We've been 4 times and we average $75USD for 2 people with about 3 drinks each, sharing an appy and 2 entrees... They put on special theme nights 3x p/w which are great w/ set menus - very good value and they have local musicians and a capoeira show - very, very cool... the Chef does it right - he's visible and walks the room... Always filled with Dutch people, lol... They speak english here... Very classy, solid spot... Top 2 in Pipa so far... I say value is avg only b/c Brazil is so expensive - this place is better than most...

“Amazing”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Went to Restaurant X as it is next to our hotel, and so we thought we could get a quick and easy meal, but we were utterly blown away. Best meal we've had in Brazil for very reasonable price. Gabriel has worked in kitchens the world over and his skill and appreciation of food clearly show. A fantastic evening. Highly recommended.

“Without doubt the best of the best”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

The chef here is an artist, we had a table with 9 people and everyone with different tastes, even one who could not eat anything with garlic, (very difficult in Brazil) but Gabriele managed to please everyone with fantastic food and great service from his wife Anita, and all at prices you would not believe................Congratulations on great food and service.

“The greatest food in Pipa!”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

Me and my husband visited Pipa for two weeks and had a great time! We highly recommend Restaurant X for having the best food in town with great prices and service! The first time we had a Surf & Turf and a beautiful red Tuna steak. The taste and presentation of these dishes were amazing!!! Ambient is friendly and we had a great service offered by the staff in english. We went back a couple of times during our stay and every dish was fantastic, the steak with sauce, mashed potatoes and veggies... Yum!!! We have to say we never expected this quality of food in the Northeast from Brazil... The chef is a Dutch guy who has international cooking skills - He can really cook! They also have a theme evening on Saturdays cooking each week food from a different country. We went for Vietnamese food and had a great time! For only $ 38 Reales we got 6 dishes each that were heaven! Hope to have helped. Enjoy!

“Good restaurant but there is better in Pipa”
Reviewed May 2, 2011

In April we stayed for 2 weeks in Pipa and before we go we read the different ratings of the restaurants in Pipa - and we were sure we would get a good meal at " X " and our first meal, steak was good though because you need side dishes like fries - the price was also reasanable high - we noted that they had every Monday a speciality " Theme " night with 8 courses - we went to the lndian Evening and we must say we were dispointed with the meals we got - there was plenty of food that was not the problem - the soupe was very good but all the other dishes were very dry from taste - from a good or even a reasonable chef, we expect they can prepare chicken fillet that the meat is still tender and not dry - well in almost every Indian dish there was chicken and it was dry like cardboard - the price was R$38 without taxes and to say honestly, it wasn' t worth R$20 - the service in the restaurant is reasonable and they are friendly - the decoration of the restaurant is poor - the restaurant receives mainly Dutch guests
