Nice and cozy place. The decor is soothing. Inside the place and u will forget u r at a noisy Porverim junction. Food is ok but it is actually the ambience that will pull you there again and again.

It's not my first time, neither my last. Ive been rarely disappointed by Maracas. Beef, pork, salads, deserts, mocktails... just explore their nice menu. Staff good. Just a little critic: it might take little long to come from kitchen... but always worth the wait!!
