Seafood was over-cooked, oysters awful, charged for food we didn't order and the waiter refused to take the item off of the bill. The server was unattentive during the meal and rude when asked about the additional charge on the check.

Nice place with beautiful view.
The food is OK but not wonderful.
We took the risk of taking some oysters, not a god idea - got sick.
Service could also be better.

Typical Brazilian seafood house and cuisine. In front of Lagoa da Conceiçao. Beautiful view during daytime. Excellent dishes, parking lot.

Excellent menu with lots of options of sea food. We had oysters as appetizers and fish fillet as main course. The lake view is outstanding! However, the service wasn't very efficient. We had the impression that the waiters were a little bit confused: it was necessary to double check the orders more than once. In the end, it really worths a try!!!

I was a fan of Ponta for more than a decade watching it grow from a small one room cseafood cafe with simple dishes. Each year it progressed with more tables more rooms, bigger kitchen,etc... Somewhere along the way the quest for more business started to diminish the charm of the place...Don't get me wrong the lula d'ore are still very good, but it is frozen rather than fresh...The same is the ase for a lot of the fish. Fortunately, the same is not true for the shrimp because they are netted up practically before your eyes in the lake where the restaurant is located. I still am very fond of this restaurant...It is a lovely place to end the day with a cold beer or drink and good seafood dishes...but it doses not blow me awaylike it used to.
