Beer was lukewarm, service was SLOW and waiters were so rude - ours didn't even bother telling us our food would take over an hour. If it once was good, today it's a tourist trap and not worth the money you'd spend. Best thing about the place: the exit.

I live in Fortaleza so I I am not a tourist. This place is a major rip off. The service is terrible. The beers are filled with foam they charge you for a full glass when half of it is foam. For such a wealthy crowd, they don't even offer Wi-Fi which is ridiculous. Not a bad location and the... More

The atmosphere at Boteco Praia is delicious - cool breeze, nice looking people, music, it's perfect to drink a few beers or cold drinks (caipirinhas!). But I was dieting, not drinking alcohol, which limited the experience a bit. I would love to have tried a few of their fried appetizers and caipirinhas. Service was not the best as well, they...

Here I tried the best seafood of Fortaleza! I recommend the dish "combo do mar" which has pasta with cheese and shrimps and two generous pieces of "lagosta"! The space also has a great MPB and that helped to create a pleasant atmosphere.😊

Great place to go for a meal or snacks and some beers to hangout with your friends. Went there with friends from different parts of the world and had a pretty cool time there because of the ambience the restaurant has.

Great views of the beach, and the food is good as well! Really enjoyed the meal overall. The drinks were great too, and the prices were not too steep.

Packed to the brim. Extremely cold beers and frozen beermugs. It's a great place to hang around and let the beers whizz past ... some of the snacks were good. . Some left us disappointed.. but the ambience and the beers kept us there for quite some time.

Went there because of the good remarks on tripadvisor and the good location. If there is nothing to say regarding the location, there are some remarks regarding food and service. We took the grilled fish and the taste was to salty...the service was inefficient as a whole, price is fair. So can progress!!!
