I was there alone while on a tourist trip. The ambiance is good with jazz music playing and a contemporary decor. The waiters were kind and prompt, but were not instructed by the chef on how to present the "fancy" ingredients of dishes. I had the Camarao Anysio, that comes with sweet potato gnocchi, and it was good. The shrimp... More

The ambience of the Restaurant is okay, they offer if required a vale parking service. The waiter are middle class professionals, just doing their job without paying to much attention to the guests or doing the little more to satisfy. The wine card is the typical Brazilian one with South American and Mediteranean wines, not so many white ones. The... More

I happened to be in Fortaleza in Mid August of 2013 and went to this restaurant. The layout is very lovely, the art is lovely, and the food is incredible. I happened to speak to the Chef in my broken Portuguese and he surprisingly speaks English :) He recommended to me a shrimp and crab dish based on what I... More

This is one of the best restaurant in Fortaleza area. Ask for the Moana Lobster, wonderful. They also have parking and it is nearby everywhere in Fortaleza.

Simply one of the best dining experiences I ever had. Besides the amazing view from my table facing the ocean, Chef Eduardo Sisi putted it together an amazing menu. I loved the mixture of classic dishes with the touch of local ingredients. I strongly recommend the Beff Ribs with the bbq sauce made with “Rapadura”. Outstanding service. I truly do... More

This is a great restaurant. We were there with a party of 8 and had a wonderful evening. The food was exquisite, the ambiance welcoming and the service was very attentive. Chef/owner Eduardo prepares his offerings with the touch of someone who loves what he does. This restaurant is worth a special trip to Fortaleza.

Tonight was the most magical night of dining. The chef took precious time away from his family at a moments notice to prepare a wonderful meal for us. It was the perfect blend of artistry and creativity with outstanding presentation and service. Our food was perfectly paired with the wine and each dish was selected with great care and pride....
