We went there for 1 night. Prices around typical for the islands (around 8 - 10 Euros for a main meal). They didn't speak much english but sign language is fine. There were a couple playing local music - we were always the first to clap them after every song. The service was fine and no complaints. Food - all... More

This restaurant lives on its past reputation. On our visit it was nothing more than average. Mainly catering for groups of a dozen at a time Island hopping French people on guided tours. As we were not booked in (or in a group) we did seem to take second place when it came to service. Food was OK but I... More

You don't realise how big this restaurant is from the small frontage. That is because it is up stairs on the first floor, and is mainly open air. This is fine most of the time, although it can get a bit windy at times. We were served with preprandials and nibbles ( included in the set price) as well as... More

Location was fine but the service, although nice, was a bit slow. The baccalo was too way dry, and the pizzas soft and mediocre to say the least - the band was fine however

We arrived on Saturday night and got a table next to the great live band playing local music and accompanied by two wonderful local dancers. This was what Mindelo is about and the cultural aspects of the visit were what we sought and what we got. The food was basic Italian fayre but Ok and reasonably priced. The venue is... More
