Hissao

Reviewed By MarciaFV - Sao Paulo, Brazil

The restaurant is spacious, simple, but very clean and agreable. The sushis are pretty tasty, the fish is fresh. The "espetinho de lula - squid" is the best I have eaten. You must try it!

Saint Tropez

Reviewed By Rosemary W - Hope Island, Australia

This restaurant was a random choice by us but we were thrilled with the very tasty prawn risotto. Note that at R $75 or Australian$25 it looks more expensive than you'd normally pay here but there is more than enough for two people. Many restaurants in Brazil do this size of meal x2. It's in a very comfortable cool verandah setting. The toilet is pristine clean and modern. Very welcome. It's licensed and also serves pizza as well as a range of European meals.it's walking distance of just over a block from the jetty where the boats leave for a 4 hour cruise of Islands and Beaches nearby. That's not to be missed. We paid R $30 ea h. You should bargain for that price. You can take your own food and beer or buy onboard. Boats leave at around 11am. Some leave earlier. A great day!

Sol na Cozinha

Reviewed By Romain1136493 - Ixelles, Belgium

Well what a disappointment!
Food was overly indistinctive and average, I had a chicken mustard which was only chicken + rice + cold Brazilian french fries, absolutely no creativity in this dish, nor balance with vegetable for example. For 28R+ tax I expect more than a plate looking like I was back from a self service restaurant.
My wife wanted to take the ceasar salad, but after questioning the waiter she realized that this salad was only lettuce (for 24R++) how do they dare putting this on the menu and calling it ceasar salad?
They sell 300ml of water for 4.5 + tax, what a cheap shot!
Atmosphere was strange, with techno music and empty room
Last but not least the staff was very unwelcoming. I guess they don't like people from the outside.
So-so

This place is a portuguese restaurant located close to Anjos Beach. The staff is really attentive and the food is fantastic. Bacalhau dishes are perfectly made and the prices are very reasonable. Definitely worth a visit during your stay in Arraial!

Restaurante Por Do Sol

Reviewed By Rafael R

It s hard to find a place to have a delight meal at Arraial do Cabo. This restaurant is one of them. I asked for fried schrimp and fish, rice and beans. Everything was really good. The bad point was the TV, it was turned on a police program which just showed up violence in Brazil. Not good to see while you are eating. Other place i ate well was at Idenir restaurant. As simple and humble Por do Sol, but with a nice meat and fish as well.

This a very good place is arraial. Food was very good, with many choices, the manager very friendly and the price more than honest (around 45 the dish for 2P).
The atmosphere is not as great as the rest but this is what arraial is all about I guess!
Excellent option

Good food at a nice place with a great view! Just a bit difficult if you go alone. Since they don't want to split the dishes which are planned for two persons... And 90% is for two persons...Thanks!
