“Delicious food, but (too?) expensive”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We came here to eat twice, since we've got a promotion for the meal and we liked the food.

Both times we got an appetizer (Consume de peixe - coubert; R$25), which was sort of a fish soup, served with bread and different toppings.
As the main dishes we took: Peixe vojnilo (R$ 48), which is a very well made fish fillet in delicious caper sauce, served with vegetable rice; Lagosta vojnilo (R$ 100), fresh, nicely cooked lobster meat on a stick, also served with the rice; Estageti o polvo (R$ 52), spaghetti with octopus - the dish was rich in the seafood, which is usually rare; the octopus was delicious, you could tell it is fresh and well done. However, in the end there was too little of spaghetti, too much of the octopus and definitely too much of the sauce, that was too strong in the taste - you could feel the tomato extract, too salty and too oily.
The dessert, tapioca ice cream with goiaba topping, was very very tasty, but super sweet - so it was difficult to eat it all after so much food already.

The service was so-so, depending on the day and on the waiter. But it could definitely improve. On Mondays and Tuesdays the restaurant is almost empty, towards the end of the week it gets full. Sometimes there is a problem with the parking, but they have a vallet, so no worries about that.

The ambient is nice, nothing really special and in the end the bill gets just too high for what you actually got. The drinks are super expensive and even having a discount we payed too much for what we thought was worth paying.

If you like to eat well and you don't care about the price you are paying, you should go and see this place. Otherwise think about it a bit, but if you go, I don't think you could regret it.

“The best seafood dishes in Fortaleza”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

The best option in terms of upscale seafood fortress. The place is cozy and romantic. Offers few, however delicious, dishes, with the differential of the wonderful spices.

“Try the taioba, double check your bill”
Reviewed 6 July 2013 via mobile

Located in a restaurant cluster where you will find no parking spots. Take a taxi. Specializing in sea food, you should try the Taioba clams. The wine list is poor. The worst: my bill came with prices not corresponding to those in the menu. I mean, they overpriced 1 item. At the end they agreed to correct it. Honesty is not a value in this place. Double check your bill if you want to go at all.

“Dramatic, dramatic, dramatic”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

Expensive, loud, slow: in one word: terrible.
I spend a fortune there with my family for nothing: it became a terrible evening.
Food was bad, personnel was rude, dishes took 45 minutes each, bad acoustics and expensive.
Avoid this place definitely: there are a lot better ways to waste your money.
