This is a nice place for a good meal in the city but not great one. If you are heading to something more sophisticated or more genuine, there other places in the city. Nevertheless it was worth to try :)

Quintal da Musica is not only a five star deserving restaurant but a place where culture meets Instant gratification. The music is amazingly beautiful and embracing. The atmosphere is culturally inspiring and artistically rich in Cape Verdean Culture. I can't wait to return. DrC
