I recommend Peixada à moda da casa for 2. All the food is for 2 persons and you will have a lot of food. Good shrimp, lobster and fish. The price is a nice surprise

Good food, quiet and nice friendly staff. A bit overpriced but the quality is important in this town as we have had some questionable food for sure! Liked the coconut fish dish and lots of good ice cream for desert.

Never seen a staff as incompetent as the waitresses and the manager of this place. The food quality is not good enough excuse to be treated as an unwanted guest. The prices are too high as well.

Restaurants in the town are with very low quality, this place is not an exception. Not fresh food, sleeping waitress, dirty dishes.

Good food, I had an octopus cooked with coconut to perfection, it has reasonable prices, and really a little restaurant which you would never think they are so good.

It is a very simple restaurant in front of the sea in Maragogi, but the food is delicious. I would recommend the "Peixarão" which is a fish cooked with shrimps and coconut milk. It sounds strange but it is a delicious combination. This dish with a "Cupuaçu" juice it is just Great! Nice and quick staff (it is not so... More

We had a "generous" portion of grilled, well seasoned lobster for a fair price. Attentive, simple but warm service. Meal for our 3-year-old kid was not charged (grilled chicken, rice, beans and vegetables). Good option after visiting the famous Maragogi's galés!

I went there for lunch with the kids after the Gales' trip (piscinas naturais), the boats trip to the reafs, around 1pm. Servicing was quite fast, 20min; compared with other restaurants in town. Food tasted quite good, we took "carne de sol", a type of local jerked beef with salad. Price was cheap. I do recommend it. For family. At... More

Looks very simple, but the food is delicious! Fair price and excellent service. I had the "Bobó de camarão" and 2 jar of juice (fresh tropical fruits) Total price: R$ 105. We were in 2 people, but could serve 3, if not too hungry.

I went to this restaurant with a lot of expectation due to the fact that it's the second rated by customers on trip advisor. The location is simple, but it's clean. Food is good, but far from the second place in my opinion. I've been to some other places Maragogi with much better food. Moreover, service wasn't good (actually it... More
