  • A wonderful market where you can find a very nice handmade clothes and articles for the house. The prices are cheap and the food just delicious.
  • Great: Food, karaoke, theme photos, vibe. Watch out for the guy charging R$2.00 for a photo with the wooden donkey, looked dodgy to me.
  • A big place where you can eat and drink. I was there in the weekend and there was live music.
  • 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.
