Like I said, decent ice cream, nothing to write home about. What annoyed me is that it is charged by the kilo and no price is posted, I had to ask. That they don't accept credit or debit cards is made abundantly clear though.

You just can't visit Garopaba and not eat here. Their food is great, and their ice cream is even better.

Delicious and cheap ice-cream and food, where you serve yourself and pay by weight! The lines can be somewhat long sometimes so make sure you avoid the worst times of day.

Regular variety of dishes to choose, including traditional Brazilian food like feijoada, and polenta. Comfortable seatings in front of the beach, it's great also as a takeaway dinner. Their cook is very good and prize is ok since you pay according to a weighing scale. Service is ok but waiters aren't very helpful. A recommendable place to go.

I really enjoyed the variety of food, including many species of fish to choose. They had anchova, salmon, congrio, pescada, etc. The place is exactly in front of the beach and price is affordable (you pay per kilo). It's not expensive.
