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

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

We were in Porto De Galinhas for 3 nights and this was the best restaurant we went to. Food was delicious, staff were attentive and both food and wine were very reasonable priced. 8/10.

We came to Porto De Galinhas on our honeymoon and tried many different places. We ate here our first night and it set the bar very high. We had the escondidinho de carne de sol (it was called something different there, but it's the one in the picture.) It was amazing (First time I had ever had it.) We also... More
