Durval serves seafood and brazilina dishes. I tried Arroz de camarao (Shrimp Rice) and it was delicious. Beers are served very cold, with choices of Brazilian and imported beers. You can seat in the terrace area where you are in the outside with a view of the ocean and beautiful garotas girls passing by. Good atmosphere!

Came back a second night with family for dinner at this place, so good the first time was. Definitely recommend this place. A bit expensive, but great food and the view is amazing, especially from the top floor.

Seems to be a place where the expats hang out. Good food and good service and Staff's English is reasonably good. Worth a visit

Like many of the restaurants on Ave Atlantica, this place has a mix of pizza, pasta, seafood and meat. The food at this place was the best I had in Macae. And the view of the ocean was very nice.

The food is good, the portions are quite large and the service is fair. Not really appropriate for children even though they do go there.

Also one of the most traditional restaurants from macae. The location could not be better, in front of cavaleiros beach and also it's an open restaurant so it looks like you are at the beach. They are not cheap, but you mostly pay because of the location. The good thing is that they are always open: lunch, dinner and deliver!!

Directly overlooking the sea, this is a pleasant place to eat with a good Brazilian menu. The weather was atrocious when I went with a colleague and meant there weren't too many in the restaurant. However, the meal (a fish stew) was very nice. We were sat upstairs where the service was ok.
