“Very good fish”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

It catches your attention from outside, with its façade that looks like a bubble aquarium. Very traditional fish restaurante in Cuiaba. They offer both "all you can eat" and " a la carte". It is on the pricier side, with dishes for 2 people starting at about R$80
Since I went solo, the "cheapest" option me was the all you can eat service. Ate about R$69, they serve all sorts of river fish from the area, and some local traditional fare as well. I tried crocodile meat,but didn't really care for it. The fish were all delicious!
Loved the piraputanga meat ball, and the shrimp "pastel".
Very nice staff, great atmosohere. A bit pricey, but worth the visit.

“Great food, bit costly for backpackers”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

This my birthday treat, so we splurged a bit. We had piraruca scewered on a bbq stick. Other items on the menu include caiman, stingray and of course piranha. Nice. Great service and food.
