One of the best self-service restaurants I have been to in Brasil, but the prices are also among the highest. Good atmosphere with many backpackers and after eating you can go to the back to have a drink a the hostelnar. Definitly worth to go for a quick and delicious dinner.

The place isn t pretentious and you can choose whatever you want from the buffet as you pay by the weight. I found this one to be the best by kilo restaurant I have been in Brazil (been to more than 5 between Rio, Salvador and Ilha Grande). It has fewer options than the average kilo place but the food...

This looked promising from the outside. Buffet and price per kilo but the food is Less then average; has near to no taste. Mainly focused on vegans as there were only 3 meat dishes . But the vegetables we tried were overcooked and without taste. Service was not good as the place was too small and they couldn't keep up... More

This is a pay per kilo place, slightly more expensive than the other 5 or 8 in the village. Food was tasty, nothing over the top. It ran roughly R$100 all said and done for food and beer (Big Bohemias of course). Sit out front along the street to people watch...this is one of the main 2 arteries. Major props... More

The food is very tasty. They offer many different dishes and change them every day. It's not cheap but its value. We ate there three times and it was great.

Not the cheapest but excellent food. Especially as a vegetarian. Loved the guacamole and salad selection. They also had a selection of hot food, meats, fish, baked Aubergine and a delicious cheese tart.

This kg-restaurant is a bit more expensive than all the other ones we have been before, but it is so worth it to pay a bit more! The food is excellent and the value is very good for the food. We went there almost every evening whilst we stayed on Ilha Grande. It is clean and a nice place to... More

A huge variety of food ! All the food is delicious and made fresh. A great place to fill the stomach when the hunger strikes, but be careful for the coatings. They are reasonable but if your eyes get too big for your stomach your wallet will suffer.
