Friendly staff, extremely delicious food (especially Picanha), great location (near Santa Maria's beach and for example Oasis salinas sea hotel) and great decoration. There is also Pirate shop, so you can also find souveniers there, clothes etc.

Restaurant is set up like a pirate ship - Very original decor! Service was outstanding and the food was delicious. Great chicken skewers - amazing flavours! Large portions - fresh pizza was great. Would definitely go back!

The food was okay at best, we've been to many resterants like this where you get as much meat, sausages, chicken etc as you can eat and that's why we thought we'd like this place...however the meat choices were poor at best, and the place...More
