I went there on my first evening in Perpignan and enjoyed every second of my dinner. The waitress was very forthcoming and took her time to explain me different Brazilian dishes.

The city is not overly famous for its cuisine. When we stumbled upon this restaurant it was nearly a life changing experience ! we love Brazilian food and been to Brazil several times, the food in Barraco was simply amazing, the meat was the best meat we had in France and the gravlax with 'secret mango sauce' was incredible.

Barraco do Dende provided our family with an amazing food experience in France. The food is fresh, tasty and appealing. My two daughters, who are fussy eaters, devoured a full plate of Feijoada with Chicken wings. My husband chose Gravalx for starter and Picanha as a main and said it was the best meat experience he has had ever had... More

We have been returning on vacation to southern France for years now and although the landscape and the place itself is beautiful, there is something we have never been able to find: a restaurant dinner with good quality and tasty meat. This restaurant provided the long sought exception to the rule, and it is not a lie to say that... More

We visited this restaurant on a miserable wet day in Perpignan. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the food was really excellent. Helped by the lovely Nora and her daughter, we enjoyed a very good mixed tapas starter, and then had two really well cooked meat dishes - my wife said her steak with three sauces was the... More

Barraco do Dendê is a lovely Brazilian restaurant with a nice decoration that makes you feel that you are really in Brazil. The moment you open the door, you are welcomed by this warm atmosphere, the music and in our case, by Elnora, who is so pleasant. The food is excellent. My husband had the vatapá as the main course... More

I came to Barraco do Dende as a long-standing fan of Brazilian food and culture, and having recently started to follow a vegan diet, I was intrigued to see how the chefs would respond to the challenge of bottling that brilliant Brazilian flavour in a meat-free dish. I was delighted with what I was served: a delicious vegetarian moqueca, rich,... More

It's a beautiful place run by beautiful people. Their conversation is easy & interesting, the cosy - even homey - ambiance can turn into a party any minute, and they're really good at celebrating birthdays ! They also happen to have a really fine Chef - loooved the fried bouchées - and the service is just as good. And since... More

We spent two months in the Perpignan area and happened upon Barraco d Dende on our last day. Elnora, the owner, is a delightful, multilingual Brazilian lady with a fine kitchen and wait staff. The location is convenient for lunch when you are in the city (eat inside or on their shaded patio), and there is music and Capoeira (a... More
