Quintal da Musica is not only a five star deserving restaurant but a place where culture meets Instant gratification. The music is amazingly beautiful and embracing. The atmosphere is culturally inspiring and artistically rich in Cape Verdean Culture. I can't wait to return. DrC

Food of good quality: excellent tuna and shrimps. I had a rice suriname style: excellent. Good portuguese wine. Traditional music with an outstanding woman singer. Very good but a little bit too noisy.

A nice and unique place to eat, very clean and a bit fancy for Praia. I hoped for more Vegetarian/Vegan options. The "vegetarian" menu they offer is not recommendable. They have decent pasta w legumes, however not vegan.

Very slow service, food was over-cooked, music was boring and not as exotic as we expected. Over-priced. Better places to eat in Praia.

The best place we went to in Praia. Pleasantly furbished, very cozy, with a nice and friendly service, a wide range of beverages and dishes (and enormous portions!) and enchanting music. Recommended for more than one visit.
