We didn't go here until our last night because from their outdoor sign, it looked like it was only pizza.... but they have a full menu that has a focus on local river fish (like everyone else) but also some good solid non-fish options. On...the plaza, good service and shares live jazz music with the restaurants next door.More

Liked the food there, the variety is wide and the place works till late evening. Friendly and hospitable staff. Just on the main square overlooking the theatre - good place for dinner either for two or for a large group of friends.

Add a beer or 2 on each and service charge and its around 100brl 4 cheese pizza was ok, sounds...stupid but was very cheesy.. by that I mean quite strong cheese. Girlfriend had the Frango (chicken) and was delicious :-) Beer (Brahma) is great Atmosphere good, right next to the theatre. Felt safeMore

Friendly service, some English language to assist those who don't speak Portugese, and a nice, low key menu of pizza, fish and meat, with a few vegetarian dishes too. Fast service and an awesome Portugese pizza washed down with the local Antarctic beer made for...a lovely evening absorbing the local atmosphere. You are right on saint Sebastian square, so there was lots going on. Reasonably priced too. Gets my vote.More

Three of us shared a large (grande) hearts of palm pizza. Although it filled us up, we could have eaten more, driven by the sheer deliciousness. The setting on Manaus’s central Sao Sebastiao plaza is lovely, and service was fast and attentive.

I have to say this is possibly the worst meal I've ever been served. Thinking that their steak meal would be a welcome change from fish based dishes in Manaus, well I was very much mistaken on that one! Imagine this; steak wrapped in a...cheap grade deli ham (or an even cheaper substitute) then wrapped in cheese slices and cooked in what looks like Heinz spaghetti sauce. Sounds absolutely horrible, doesn't it, the stuff of nightmares? No, it's real and you can get it in this place served up to you with chips, rice and fried bananas. The steak was inedible, like shoe leather! So bad that I just chopped it up threw it on the ground to a stray cat. She enjoyed it! Definitely stick to the fish dishes in Manaus.More

I had the pizza with sausage, which gave the otherwise somewhat bland pizza some kick in the flavor department. You can't beat the ambience and the view though and while some people complain about the service (you're in Manaus not Lausanne for crying out loud)...it's perfectly adequate.More

The food was delicious but for the price I would expected a little bit more of the side dishes. The fish was freshly made and it tasted good. The service was good but it took him a bit long after we said we want to...pay.More

We wanted a light meal and chose the salads on the menu. Freh and enough veggies, without sauces or lots of oil!!

Nice evening with simple but very tasty food. Service was good and fast. And the view of Teatro Amazonas by night absolutely unmissable. Definitely a place to stay in Manaus!

We went for dinner in the Manaus central square with the stage set for a live transmission of the "impeachement vote". The food was average but that was far less important to us than the people watching - and was likely so for the chef...too (the steak and fillet were overdone and barely edible) but we are gratefull to the restaurant that it let us watch the show.More

We shared a chicken dinner with rice. Nothing out of the ordinary but the juice was the best we had. We went back the next two days just for the juice.

We came here for dinner on our last night in Brazil. A lovely spot in the square with the theatre. The food was ok, nothing to write home about but equally not offensive in the slightest. We shared a fish dish and a pizza, both...which were fine! Would rush back, but would happily eat there again.More

Great location on the square looking out towards the theatre, often with musicians performing nearby. Food was ok and prices weren't bad for the location.
