Lonely Planet review

This hugely popular palm-thatched eatery specializes in great local tapioca and couscous creations. The tapiocas comprise a lightly fried tapioca 'pancake' around fillings ranging from vegetables and cheeses to carne de sol (grilled salted meat) or prawns. The eight-piece mini-tapioca appetizers (petiscos) are a riot. Get there early to avoid waiting for a table.
