Food of good quality: excellent tuna and shrimps. I had a rice suriname style: excellent. Good portuguese wine. Traditional music with an outstanding woman singer. Very good but a little bit too noisy.

A nice and unique place to eat, very clean and a bit fancy for Praia. I hoped for more Vegetarian/Vegan options. The "vegetarian" menu they offer is not recommendable. They have decent pasta w legumes, however not vegan.

The best place we went to in Praia. Pleasantly furbished, very cozy, with a nice and friendly service, a wide range of beverages and dishes (and enormous portions!) and enchanting music. Recommended for more than one visit.

The two dinners at the 'Quintal da Musica' (The Backyard of Music) in the Platô quarter were probably our best experience we had in Praia. It is a beautiful place with some style and the food served there is excellent. The room is decorated with...More

On the 29th of June a three man band played at 5al da musica. They started at 21.00 (they also played in Cidade Velha two days earlier but with a drummer). Can someone please give me their names and/or email for potential gig booking? Obrigada in advance
