We went on 2 January. So that may explain why this was such a disappointment. But it smelled like stale alcohol. And the food was poor, close to inedible. Service even worse.

Full of beautiful people, and a few less so, with amazing gymnastics right beside, we sat on the edge of the beach looking at the waves, surfers and everybody else and Ryan nice food.

Awful service in this restaurant but the food was decent and portions are quite generous. We waited over 45mn for a simple dish of chicken and we had to get our own menus and set the table ourselves (and still pay 10% service on the bill!) Location is great, with a view on Geriba beach and the ocean

When we told our driver we would like seafood, he brought us to Fishbone. It is right on the beach, has sun and shade and covers a large area. We wanted sun so he prepared a huge lounging couch, complete with Chandon pillows and we ordered drinks. We perused the menu whilst enjoying caiparinhos, and when our meal was ready,... More

We went there for a lunch with friends. The foods are nice. And the best is the service. Really attentive to a group of people. The price is not cheap but reasonable.

There was a major language barrier but I showed the waiter the raw chicken and he said okay and took the plate and bought out the bill. I had hoped they would take the chicken of the bill but they did... More

Fishbone is a nice beach club and restaurant at praia de Geriba. They serve tasteful food (try the Moqueca) and play great music!

We had a great time at Fishbone during lunch on a weekend recently. The food was very good and the place is fun. I thought the music was awful, but apparently there was people enjoying it. The food: moqueca and bobo were both delicious. Service is a little slow, but not terrible.

Extremely expensive and doesnt justify price . menu is very limited . they simply take advantage of the location at GERIBA to charge extremely expensive prices...there r other options and this should not be supported ....
