“Dancing taste buds”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

The entrance to this beautiful restaurant is on the historic square near the church. A candlelit path leads to a wide deck. It's a wonderful place to talk and eat. The spagheti Sa is a pasta dish with seafood. Wonderful!! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. The flambeed pineapple is another personal favorite. Go and enjoy.

“Great Food -worth it!”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

Best shrimp strognoff, actually went back the next day for "bobó" de camarão. friendly service, nice atmosphere, happy yet not loud. We were a group of 16 people, without reservation. very hard to get a table, yet, they accomodated us, did all they could to please us. Again, don't forget your bug spray, as mosquitoes are very common all over Trancoso, they eat you while you are eating ;-) can't wait to go back to that restaurant!

“Very good restaurant”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

Nice decoration, good food with local dishes and service is excellent, we were there with our 4 year old daughter and they prepared out of the menu meal for her. The staff is very attentive! Ratio price quality much better than other options in Quadrado. We loved the mini-acarajés!

“Good service, reasonable food, nice restaurant”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

The food is a little tasteless (my shrimps at least were), we did have a group of loud people next to us (and they seemed to be part of the crew - managers or owner), but the restaurant is very nice, beautifully decorated and nice setting. Prices are at São Paulo level, as many other restaurants in Trancoso though (you pay for exclusivity here). Service, although not extremely professional (but what do you expect this far away..), was very attentive, waiters did their best to serve well. Overall a good experience and recommend to eat here once.
