Good atmosphere and honestly the best meal I had in a place where every menu looked the same. Good service and fair prices. Only complaint is that it was a little hot inside the restaurant. Definitely try the manioc breaded shrimp.

Nice place, with life music, good singer. Attentive staff, worth the try, specially if you like food with tapioca. I had 3 starters and a dessert for R$ 120,00 + 10%

The food was ok, I wouldn't make a detour just for the food but the location is very good close to the beach. Service was good. We went early (around 5-6pm) and we didn't have to wait.

Having read reviews here on trip advisor we decided to eat at Barcaxeira. What a disapointment. Not sure if we caught the restaurant on a bad night. It really wasn't worth the wait, was very disappointing and honest keg the worst meal I have had on this trip to Brazil. No attention to detail, long waiting times for canteen quality... More

Colorful and cheerful restaurant with delicious food but the space is not large. The staff is friendly. When we went there was no waiting queue (maybe because it was early) but it was always full. We chose to stay on the terrace which is very welcoming. They have live music (additional cost). We enjoyed a lot this experience!

This place is not a hidden jewel. Most people in town will recomend its hearty fare composed mostly of an excelent mix of manioc, cheese and meat. Therefore, even though service tends to be as good as the food, you will wait a while from the time you get to the place til you actually eat the delicious food. But... More

A good friend of mine told me to check this place out and it was great!!! The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and amazing food. The prices are not expensive and the portions are very good. I went there twice and had three different dishes that I can't fault it. The staff is friendly and they have lovely love music... More

Last night I had one of the best fried yuka and calamari ever. The food and service were just perfect, and the beer was very cold. I'm in Porto de Galinhas for a few extra days, so I might just come back. If I had to give just one tip for the restaurant it would be to serve their fried... More
