Due to jet lag we were out to eat earlier than most which accounted for the very quiet restaurant. One of us had the fish cooked in panko served with shrimps and broccoli rice. He said it was the best fish meal he had ever eaten. I had the cashew chicken served in a really rich sticky sauce and fresh... More

We had a dinner there next to the ocean and we ordered shrimps with moranga and white fish in damasc sauce. All food was delicious, ten points! The windows were dirty so enjoying the view was a little bit disturbed. Service was ok but not excellent.

Currently Gratin is in the first place, but this is actually the same kitchen, but on the seaside. All items we've chosen were perfect. Beef steaks, fish, shrimps are delicious! Also I should mention natural juices here: caja, graviola, acerola - all are perfect!

I went to Porto Galinhas for vacations, and for me it is the one of best restaurants I went. Excellent food and very good the attention. I have no doubt that if i have the chance I would come back here.

Charming spot right on the beach. I recommend the shrimp and mango paella although the filet mignon with gorgonzola cheese is also a winner. Worth a visit.

My wife and I just had lunch at this restaurant' s ocean front kiosk and was blown out of our minds! Their coconut fried shrimp with spicy passion fruit dipping sauce was incredible. Certainly one of the best I've ever tried, and quite possibly the best. We also had their jerked beef with fried yuka which was also quite good.... More

Good food and atmosphere, but not the best on Porto de Galinhas. It worth a visit, mainly during the day, when you can have a great sight of the ocean.

We got a full fish which was good but it was fried. Kids got a fish plate that was fried as well. .I requested a carne de sol... More

During the day you can appreciate the wonderful panorama: ocean view while you eat extremely well. At night the restaurant is very romantic with garden, nice atmosphere. The food is always good with an exotic and delicious menu.
