Sushi, temaki, spring rolls, gyoza, fish, shrimps, calamari... they have it all. In my opinion there are better restaurants in the Vila, but at Caranguejo you will certainly find something you'll like!

Really great atmosphere, and their caipirinhas were delicious! The lula (calamari) was delicious, as was the Brazilian fish stew (moqueca) was great. The waiter was very nice and friendly, and gave great advice on how much to order since we were sharing.

Have great Sushi, a wonderful Ceviche or an excellent fish moqueca at this charming restaurant. Wonderful service. Generous menu. Huge portions. The ceviche appetizer is like a main meal, and the moqueca for two serves four.
