Food is absolutely amazing and described perfectly by the lady co-owner. Possibly the best authentic restaurant I have ever eaten in, absolute gem! Totally relaxed atmosphere with authentic fresh made recipes by talented chefs. Lovely wine and excellent service. A definate 'must visit' restaurant whilst...on the island.More

My wife (who is Italian so has high standards for Italian cuisine) and I first stumbled upon this place a few years ago on our first visit. We are here several times(!). We came back on our second visit, again several times. We finally made...it back out to Sal after 2 years due to covid. This time with our baby (just as accommodating as when we were just a couple). The owner Barbara remembered us and was as wonderful as always. Barbara and her husband are Italian and most of the produce is imported from Italy, which you can taste in the food. It’s real Italian food in Cape Verde. What more can you ask for?! Highly recommend the carpaccio by the way!More

Best restaurant in Cabo verde! Me and my friend went here on our last day here, and we wished we came here sooner. If you like Italian food you will love this place!! We both loved everything from starters to dessert, and the whole experience...felt like a part of Italy. Highly recommend!!!!More

Went to Baraonda twice during a recent trip to Cape Verde, as the first time was so good. Food was best quality we had anywhere, service was super-friendly. I have a couple of tricky food allergies and they were extremely accommodating and very clear at...explaining how the food was prepared and ingredients used. A must-visit, you won't regret it.More

Fantastic. Italian food freshly home made. Tuna carpaccio was uniquely different to the local dish and beautify balance. Bruschetta and goats cheese starters also delicious. The highlight was the gnocchi… fresh and beautifully served with a tomato sauce.
