We had a fantastic lunch at the restaurant located next to the lake. We had sole with caper sauce and it was delicious - nice, fresh and light served with carrots and other nice vegetables.

Go here for traditional moqueca's and other seafood dishes, oysters, and many other dishes. Outside terrace, tropical ambiance, with every Friday evening live music. Nice for business dinners, family and also romantic dinners,

Such a pleasant dinner! The staff was welcoming and the service was impeccable. They spoke little English but were good at understanding us and communicating the essentials. There is an English menu. The food was great ( we had arecajes and moqueca) as was the caipirinha and the beer (Cerpa). The wine list is good and well priced. I highly... More

I tried this place out with some friends on a whim. Very good. It serves items that you would find in Bahia. We had the acarjé starters and they were tasty. Very light and not too oily. Then we had moqueca with shrimp and fish and another creamy dish with shrimp. Both very good. Didn't have room for dessert. Recommended... More

This restaurant is in a very nice location, the view is excellent and the food is good. They have variety of seafood plates, Brazilian cuisine mostly from Bahia. I love the fresh oysters, but unfortunately they did not have any. It took a long time to bring the food even though the Restaurant was almost empty. Also the service was... More

Love this restaurant! The food was very tasty and prepared with care, nice presentation too. Service was excellent. I like the view here, the open air space, and ease of parking. The only reason I'm giving this restaurant four stars is the price. We paid 100 reais/person (gratuity included) for fish, shrimp, rice and vegetables, Coke, and dessert.

I visited the Restaurant Mangua by pure chance with my family during a weekend in Brasilia. In my age (48) and being a passionate hobby cook, who really does not like to "just eat something", I was really astonished by the quality of the food. Mainly because of the fact that before this lunch, my experiences with restaurants in Brasilia... More
