If you want to have one of the highest quality beef-gril, then this is the place to go! Do not miss it if you are in Pipa. Moreover, they have a wonderful wooden interior.

We ate here during our 4 day stay in Pipa and had the best meal during our stay. Lovely relaxed restaurant and the meat was the best we had in Brazil and at a good price. The picanha was delicious and would highly recommend the restaurant. Also Pipa was a great place.

They say this is the place to have meat in Pipa. It was good indeed. We had a cockroach encounter through, but nothing you can do about it if you have an open air restaurant.
