We were in Porto De Galinhas for 3 nights and this was the best restaurant we went to. Food was delicious, staff were attentive and both food and wine were very reasonable priced. 8/10.

We came to Porto De Galinhas on our honeymoon and tried many different places. We ate here our first night and it set the bar very high. We had the escondidinho de carne de sol (it was called something different there, but it's the one in the picture.) It was amazing (First time I had ever had it.) We also... More

Tried a few places in the area and this was the best by far. Good local food and a decent service. .. with a smile. Oh... and a "resanable wine selection ". Moqueca de peixe e camarão was lovely and so was the bolinhos de bacalhau.

Excellent food, the macaxeira recheada is really unique. However, beverages are overpriced. Anyhow, worth it either for dinner or lunch.
