We enjoyed the atmosphere a great deal. The resturant is located on the popular walkway Nextel to sao Francisco - 3 blocks from the Quality Hotel (felt safe walking). The dessert and Fish were deliciosa. English was challenging. Use Spanish if you speak portugués

Great restaurant - a good selection of foods from this region - a little expensive but its top quality so you can decide - i thought it was great with a nice vibe to the place. Do try if your in Petrolina for a few days, worth every penny.

Seems to be a popular place for local business people. Was not overly impressed with the service. The food was ok. Go for the surubim if you like fish.

Went back there for the amazing lamb on hot plate! Rare and juicy and not as salty as other meat I have had there in Petrolina! The caipirinha was a little to strong and not enough lime,
