“More fame than substance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

This restaurants has been said as one of the best restaurants in Garopaba beach. I didn't have a good experience there.

It was not bad, but not good either.

I went there to check why it has been said as so good. I order a Garoupa, typical fish from the region and it was quite dry. My daughter order a different fish and had the same result.

My husband had a shrimp with sauce made out champagne and it was ok.

The waiter took ages to serve our drinks and another half our to bring a different one to my daughter, when they didn't have the drink she order from the menu.

They have a buffet of salads and warm dishes for a reasonable price with equal reasonable food.

“Very good food”

Many options of food to choose. Staff is attentive and supportive. Very good atmosphere. There are options for vegetarians too. Prices are not expensive if compared with other similar restaurants.

Best service around.. always open... Uruguayan couple who ran the place were great.. The vegetarian buffet was amazing and only 18 reais... You can´t beat the quality and quantity of great vegetarian food.

“worms in the salad bar”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

needless to say anything else. dirty, dirty food. salad leaves are not washed properly. when I mentioned that to locals, many agreed the place is known for it's pizza… not for the raws.

“Excellent cook, coziest place, regular prize, nice attention”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

A must go place, a superb cook, excellent food. Friendly atmosphere surrounded by soft music played by a skilled organist, in front of the beach. Their salmon platter is highly recommendable, which you may accompany with your own selection from a variety of dishes available at the buffet. Helpful waiters, regular prize, a bit higher than other places but ok.
The cook is in front of you if you prefer to watch their cleanness and expertise!
The owners, a middle aged couple, is very friendly, too.
As they say in Brazil , "muito aconchegante !"
