Local favorite place offers a variety of nice dishes. The "croquetes" with draft beer for entry is obligation. Than try the chef chicken or shrimp. The sauce is amazing. Usually pretty full at Sundays lunch and Thursdays evenings

I went to Guimas with my parents in law, who used to go there back in the 80s when at university and haven't been back for a long time! I wasn't expecting a lot from what looks like a fairly standard Brazilian bar/restaurant as you...More
