I tried other places in town and their tapioca is not as nice. Lots of people buying, seems fresh. R$ 7,00-8,00 for a sweet tapioca and R$ 12,00 for a savoury one. Try! 😋

Can't say this is the best tapioca I have ever had, but it is one of the cheaper meals you can have in an overpriced holiday town. Generous filling in the tapiocas which is always a plus.

Local food at it's best. Great price per portion and the taste is wonderful. We came back here three or four times during our stay here in Porto de Galinhas.

A little place in "mainstreet" where you can order very good tapiocas at reasonable prices that you'll eat seated in the middle of the street or walking. Salt or with sugar? Try the coco with cheese

Great tapiocas! Lots of fillings to choose from. They make it for you fresh and are generous in size. This place gets busy and I can see why. So be prepared to wait a bit but it's worth it.

Best tapioca we have had in Brazil! Previous tapiocas we have had have been chewy and quite tasteless but these ones were delicious and crispy. I'd definitely recommend the Carne de Sol tapioca. There is a variety of savoury and sweet tapiocas. The staff were very friendly. There are no chairs but there are benches close by which is actually... More

This very simple window-style restaurant serves one of the best Tapioca snacks I've ever had. Usually Tapioca tortillas can be bit too dry, and almost always have a straggler piece of their uncooked flower lumps still embeded in the crust. The Tapiocas at this restaurant were always very moist and gummy with no stubborn lumps. The Tapiocas here comes in... More

I was not a big fan of tapioca wrap until I tried this. Good portion, generously stuffed, perfect as a snack between meals or as an "after-beach" snack. I had the one stuffed with cheese, cheese and beef, and coconut (dessert). They are all very tasty. Excellent prices as well. The place is very simple, and I think this is... More
