We went here for dinner it was highly recommended at the hotel we stayed at. We were not disappointed! We ordered an appetizer and dinner family style and it was delicious! The shrimp dish we ordered came in a huge (maybe 14" across bowl) boing among vegetables and a really excellent sauce - there was so much we could not... More

The restaurant has an amazing view over the beach and the staff is very friendly. Even tough it is pricey for the city standards and locals if you're on vacations give it a shot and you wont regret. Probably you will find the price cheap for what you will have.

Currently closed and looking like it is not going to be open anytime soon. Shame as it was highly recommended by a friend and we were planning to watch some World Cup games there!

It is a huge, whole fish, fried to perfection. The seating is superb! Think sitting on the beach without touching the sand, while enjoying a cool breeze, delightful waiters... More

Excellent view, service, and food. One of the best Bobó I have ever tried. The restaurant is located in one of the most important tourist areas, and can accommodate big groups.

Our Brazilian friends advised that Barravento wasn't nearly as good as it used to be, but I wanted to give it a try because the open seating over the beach is fabulous and I had a great meal here several years ago. Well, they were right. It's amazing how fast a restaurant can go downhill. I knew the food would... More

English menu available, really nice location, a good meal and several bottles of bear for 2 people cost around 100BR including service charge. Great menu choice and ate here several times as we couldn't find anything that came close to this quality.

The views alone are worth the visit to this restaurant that is located right on the beach. The food is quite good as well with large enough menu to offer something for everyone.
