Av João Maurício, 1395 – Manaíra, João Pessoa

Continuing north along the Manaira sea front, we come to The Picui Praia Restaurant which is on Av. João Mauricio, 1395 Manaira (just before MAG Shopping). Monitored sea front and side road parking is available. Note the parking can get in the way of the beautiful sea view. This restaurant has individual and family-style dishes with the flavour of the northeast. Everything from picanha de carneiro and rubacão, to peixe ao molho de camarão and peixe ao molho de frutas. Especially popular are the meat dishes which arrive at your table, sizzling with protest, on red hot griddles.
Very spectacular, indeed. There are many kinds of aperitivos (appetizers) and complete meals start out around $R15,00 up to $R50,00. If you’re looking for a traditional-style north-eastern restaurant with good service, good food and drink, this may be right for you. “Para quem curte uma cachaça tipicamente paraibana, temos a fava com caldinho, preparada especialmente para os que apreciam essa bebida genuinamente brasileira”. TV screens are placed unobtrusively around the restaurant. Sundays are particularly busy.
