We had moqueca de peixe which was really good and more than enough for 2 hungry people. Caipirinha and passion fruit juice were good as well. Service ok.

Food is great, however be prepared to wait at least 45 minutes after ordering. Overpriced as other restaurants in the island.

Nice place for having dinner. Good choice of food. Service was good but would have been even better if the waiters would show a bit more enthusiasm

No reservations are allowed. Upon arrival you are registered in a waiting list but you are given the possibility to seat and taste a drink. Good food and service. We were in the internal part of the restaurant which is a bit noisy.
