  • So you're going to eat and get out there has 1000 shops with everything from North, Northeast, Central, South, Japan, Paraguay and etc. There's music everywhere, has show, has people dancing improviser, joy and relaxation, there's a lot of sympathy from the entrance, passing by logistas and waiters who are all the time asking us to enter. The location is hot because it is covered, but most restaurants have air conditioning. The food is very sick and generally a dish for two people for four. The shows start early for lunch. So any time is good to visit the site. Super recommend the site visit. The parking lot is big but on holidays generally lota. The entrance fee is 5.00 senior citizens do not pay.

  • After we had read so many great reviews, we were a bit disappointed. Many very similar restaurants. Arts and crafts has not convinced us. Most local color became clear at the stage. Here you could listen to music, watching the people dance and have some fun.

  • Think of a fair organziada a lot, almost to buy related to northeastern traditions, typical restaurants, and great music to enjoy typical dances at night. There are shows and queryable eventps. There is on-site parking and I would recommend travel by taxi at night if possible.

  • Two stars instead of one because apparently at night it is interesting in a tacky sort of way. When we went it was hot and stuffy and most of the restaurants' electricity wasn't working.
  • If you want to eat and drink well tasting real Brazilian (northeast) flavours, this is the place to be! The best tapioca in town for a fraction you pay in South Zone of Rio. Could be very crowd and noisy, avoid weekend and evenings if you like me, hate noisy places! The famous Barraca da Chiquita is a must visit! The best place to buy excellent cachaca and leather goods (bags and sandals). Most arts craft are not cheap but very pretty and original.
  • Good place to visit while in Rio..to experience the array of culture this fair Nordeste has to offer.. from the variety of shops.. cuisine.. games and live shows..
  • Noisy, very noisy. Not a fun place to spend an evening.
  • Local culture, Gatronomy and entertainment all in one place!! PERFECT!!
