“Decent food, good music, just slow ”
Review of Ginga Bar

The servers were attentive and the menu pretty good overall. Prices average to slightly below average for the town. The biggest challenge they face is speed. Drinks averaged 10 minutes. Even water took 5. 5 servers on the floor and one guy behind the bar for 30 tables. A bit of a bar management miss there...

The live music is up close and personal. It was a bit too loud to carry on conversations at the table, which was frustrating.

I would go back but would try hard to beat the crowd in the hopes i can get done sooner.

Went there for drinks and snacks (bruschetta) The drinks took an half an hour, we were giving up went to leave, the the bruschetta showed up, we sat back down , it was cold we left again, they tried to charge us for the live music, we said no and refused to pay for the bruschetta. Go at you own peril, many more restaurants, better food, and way better service and treatment. Never pay for music, seriously what a scam, says a lot about this place, but always has a crowd who don't read the reviews!

Both Service and food are very bed. It is only well located. It is not even a cool bar. Seats are not confortable.

We had Christmas Eve dinner here. It was a special buffet. We were told it opened at 8. We arrived then and were shown a table even though we didn't have a reservation. We ordered drinks and waited for food. The first course was put out around 9. The food was fine. The main course was put out at 10. At 10:30 we left without having the dessert buffet.
I realize that dinner is late in Brazil but this really tried our patience. It's possible that on a regular nite things are a bit more speedy, I don't know.

Reasonable food and nice place to relax with live music most nights.
Always busy and open when when other places were closed.
