“Good for outdoor eating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

Simple bar and restaurant. Does pizzas, but I think the steak dishes are better. Good place for a beer and something simple to eat. It's on the square by the opera house so there's no passing traffic. Very low key, but there's not much in central Manaus which is upscale, and with this place you get reasonable food, cheap beer and a great view of the opera house. Mainly locals, but the menu is pretty simple and the staff happy to work with you on English ordering. Recommended. Locals suggested other places but the food was similar and the views worse.

“Great place to sit out for the evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

With most of thier tables outside, this is a good place for a meal and a few beers in the evening. It is on the edge of Praca Sao Sebastiao so there are no cars driving by. The fruit juice was brilliant (maybe because they have to compete with next door) and the Caipirinha was excellent as well. Liked the fish balls and the sandwiches were enought to share (no sharing for teenagers though). The evening we were there a band was playing just opposite in the Praca, so made a great evening.
They have an English menu, although the literal translations don't always work.
