I had a dinner with my family in this restaurant. They have tables in and outdoors. The outside tables are much nicer than inside. The restaurant is simple and food is good. The waiters were very attentive and the price is fair. My only complaint is that I order grilled fish and I realized that it had been fried instead.... More

No matter what you order, fish or meat, it is all very tasty and large portions. So it is a good restaurant to go for groups, a fine dish for anyone for a fair price. And the service is quick.

For lunch we ordered grilled local fish which was preceded by a platter of salad (including a delicious cold ratatouille), then the fish was served with very crispy pototoes, rice and beans. The dessert buffet was also included. The fish was excellent and the lunch very good value for money.

I went to the restaurant in my first day in Bonito. the restaurant ambiance is very nice, I saw some construction in the back that ruined a little bit the experience. When it comes to food, they have a nice selection of brazilian dishes with special attention to local kinds of fish such as Pacu and Pintado (Pintado is a... More

I was at first reluctant to come to this place as I heard half-good and half-bad opinions about it, its supposedly temperamental owner and rude staff, but a friend from Aqua travel agency told me to try and the Pintando Guavira (a local fruit) sauce was divine, the staff was attentive, and I even forgave the poor choices of beer....

Sit either inside with air-condition, or outside with shade over your head. Either is really nice. I tried the chicken with onion, which was really good. The chicken was juicy and tasty, and the onion was fried just to where it gets sweet. There was salad and potatoes, beans, rice and salsa as side-dishes. However, whe you get the 'simples'... More

The Tapera, located in the main street, just a few meters from the city square, is the place for beef in Bonito. Their steaks are truly excellent - the best in town. The restaurant looks really smart and authentic, and the service was really good. And the chef is also the restaurant owner. The Tapera also offers local fish dishes,... More

We had the saffron stew with pintado - unclear if there was actually saffron but it was a tasty and served in a very large portion (a meal for two can serve 3 or 4). It's served with a salad and rice.
