Supposed to be a sophisticated restaurant, but nor the menu or the living room are as expected. Food was average and, in my opinion, menu brings choices far from interesting. Caipirinha was delicious!!

My first good food in town. Vegetarian food available. The waiters are nice. The wine list is poor, but the food is very good.

Me and my friend went there because it looks very nice from the outside and is also air conditioned as well. I ordered Langosta and my friend ordered a steak in a dijon mustard sauce. The langosta was very over cooked and it came with a risotto that looked and tasted like brown mushy goo! My friend's steak was overcooked... More

Gatos de Rua is a very charming restaurant in Porto. Excelente to change a little the " beach atmosphere". Food is good. Wine list needs some improvement. The store downstairs is lovely. Attention : camarão no abacaxi is really sweet. Peixe na folha de bananeira is a good option.

That was the only fancy restaurant we found in Porto de Galinhas village center, but I believe there are others we didn't hear of. Menu and decoration were sophisticated. Food was good enough, a bit pricey.
