Mar aberto is an excellent restaurant. Food is outstanding and service is very good. The front view stands out and you should be prepared for a nice dip in the ocean - can’t miss that very special treat.

Very tasty seafood, great hospitality and beautiful ocean view. Mar Aberto is the absolute best restaurant in and around Arambepe. Can recommend this establishment to anyone who wants to taste Brasilian seafood dishes when it's best.

Very well cooked Brazilian food, expensive for the Arembepe standards, on the seaside (actually on the beach, you dive in the water and then seat outside with the sand on your feet) next door to the Alfazema Cultural

Enjoy a great meal while gazing at the Atlantic Ocean about 50 feet away.... We found Mar Aberto to be delightful! We shared appetizers--crab in a picante sauce and langostino au gratin (superb!), and we also shared the entree--Moqueca de camarao (which was also superb!)...More
