As noted in the comments, very few waitstaff speak English but with some gestures and trust it all worked out fine. The crab appetizer was amazing. Definitely a must try.

The place is OK, the food is not that good. Lobster was too cooked and to close there was a bug in the middle of the food... Not a good experience at all.

Ordered an appetizer and moqueca de camarão. Both were good but the appetizer took more than 30minutes to come out and moqueca took more than ONE hour to come out. The only fast thing was the drink.

Delicious food and service. My favorites are the shrimp pastel and da Vila shrimp. I suggest you to pick a table outside is very refreshing.
