We had a very good time at Cacau. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was excellent. The waitress suggested a mix of appetizer and it was delicious. Then we had "moqueca" which was so fresh and well done. We definitely would go there again.

We loved the place with a cozy atmosphere and great food. The appetizers are very tasty. Passion Fruit caipirinhas are worth it! The waivers were very attentive. Try the Cocada de Forno for desert!
