We went there for lunch and the food was fresh and tasty. They seem to have some Indian dishes but couldn't be ordered, it was maybe for diner only. The location is fantastic, the view is amazing (considering Praia) and they have a lounge part, really comfortable.

The place is most notable for its amazing view over the bay. This along with the chique and artsy interior gives the place a modern and up-class vibe. The prices of the meals contrast this as they are very affordable. The staff is helpful and friendly. The food was just exquisite! The fish tasted amazing and the replacement paella (as... More

Seated in an elegant restaurant with an amazing view we had great fish dishes, good wine and local draught beer. The service was efficient and friendly, and the food portions large. A great spot for a good meal.

The choice of "pescado" was not so wide as many options were not available but bacalhau was really good and so was the range of wines. The location is elegant, on aterrace with live music to entertain. Not lively but plesant. The prices are not exaggerate but higher than in other comparable places on the island.

Restaurant O Poeta is located near the waterfront in Achada de Sante Antiónio. Beside the restaurant there is a lounge. You can dine or have a drink overlooking the harbour, Santa Maria island and the ocean. O Poeta serves fish and Mediterranean dishes. Food is good but don’t expect fine dining. To our surprise the menu was in Portuguese only... More

We took a taxi to the restaurant (no more than 200 CVE) where we were seated in an almost empty but lovely space high on a hill overlooking the ocean. Our drinks were served almost immediately, and they were very generous. My companion had a gin and tonic which was served with a cinnamon stick, some lime slices and some... More

Just a must see in Praia, amazing views, wonderful venue and the best is its meals. From the sea, the best fish and great presentation. My first restaurant visited in Praa, Cabo Verde, and for sure one of my favourites.
