Description: This is one of a string of restaurants on the beach just outside the center of town that don't actually have addresses (as far as I know). Others of its ilk are included in major guide books, like Foder's. I'd really like to give this restaurant a review because it was amazing food, fantastic atmosphere, and wonderful, English-speaking staff (a rarity on the island). Thanks!

Really nice view, but the waiting was endless, the food took two hours waiting! It was not an elaborate Fish, just barbecue and fish on the grill. Fish was nice, but the meat was average. It was overpriced and not worth it.

Mistake ordering a hamburger. It was bunless, I guess that's a South American thing , but also overcooked and thus rock hard. That's a bad restaurant thing. My friends had overcooked chicken that they couldn't finish. It took waaaay too long to come, and then they grant themselves 10% service by default.

I gave an extra star because the waitress was nice and the setting is good.

We joined them for their BBQ dinner last night and it was fab! We had some really delicious garlic bread (they really know how to do garlic bread in Brazil!) and then chose our cuts of meat which were cooked to order. Lovely food and lovely setting on the beach. We even got to watch a thunderstorm in the distance!

Really nice place and atmosphere. Food does take awhile when you come with a big group. Chicken kebabs could have been softer food was still ok.

Nice cafe on the beach, with a very good music selection. Loved to stop by on the way back to the hotel every evening before going back to the pousada.
