We chose the place following a top-choice recommendation of Lonley Planet. The food was simple and not fancy at all. We felt like being invited for Barbecue at a neighbor's house. Sitting on the floor with some cushions was not comfortable. The price of 350 Reales (2 person dinner + 2 Caipirinhas) is not adequate at all. We can not... More

The palce was recommended in the lonely. It's reserved to maxium 20 people as you enter in a private home - do not be late as everyone eat together.

We spent 150 reais per person, We ate a small amount of roasted fish (overcooked) with only salad and some potatoes . Water and drinks are NOT included ! You eat sitting uncomfortably on cushions on the floor along with 12-14 other people . Not good, not comfortable and not romantic!

This was the pick of The lonely planet guide and I am not agree with it. We ate under a palapa hut (= a plastic tent) seating on dusty tatami mats and pills, in the backyard of a fisherman's home. The owner likes to talk with giests but it was just an useless bla bla bla... Dinner is expensive considering... More

The experience is what you'll remember. The loungy outdoor set-up with soft music and limited company (only 18 total guests per night) is a positive. The vibe is great as the food is directly prepared from the kitchen of the house. The stories the uncle and nephew tell are funny and keeps you entertained during the night The quality of... More

A local fisherman and his nephew prepare dinner (fish cooked inside banana leaves, salads, rice, farofa and caipirinhas) for 15 people, all sitting at the same big table in the garden. Great opportunity to meet other tourists on the island and to hear some local stories under a very chilled and friendly atmosphere.
