The cheapest restaurants in Porto de Galinhas

As with most things in life, the cheapest places to find something good to eat will be stumbled upon in the moment when looking to fill and empty stomach without emptying your wallet in the process. However, there are two relatively cheap restaurants to bear in mind which come highly recommended by the locals.

The first is called Cabidela da Natália. After starting her career as the house-cook for a family, Natália Melo, the owner of this establishment, achieved her goal in seting up her own business. Her restaurant owes its success to a special formula: it unites a simple ambience, with tasty home-cooked food and very reasonable prices.

The second restaurant that we would like to highlight is called Porto Galo. It is a wonderful choice if you are looking for a varied menu but at prices that won’t break the bank.

However, if you are really looking to pull tight on your purse strings, the cheapest menus available are found in the self-service restaurants. These restaurants generally serve a comination of dishes which combine rice, feijao and salads in portions sufficient enough to satisfy any size of hunger.
