Elevated Brazilian homestyle cooking. Great flavour to the dishes. Our moquecas of dorada and camarao were absolutely delicious! Quality service, napkins, drinks etc. And as mentioned by others, you get great service and table visits from the owner and his English speaking maitre'D daughter.

Bobó de Camarão was excellent, best we ever had. The chef came to our table twice for a chat and the service was speedy. Prices were even lower at Rua Mucuge.

Humble place, no fancy decoration, with surprisingly good dishes. Fresh and quality are the synonymous for the restricted options.

The most famous "prato ffeito " in Arraial. Prato feito means your dish will come served from the kitchen. But don't worry. Only the best sea food from the region and the best service you will find here. Also, the best cost benefit arround. Paulo and his family are always arround.
