I happened to be in Fortaleza in Mid August of 2013 and went to this restaurant. The layout is very lovely, the art is lovely, and the food is incredible. I happened to speak to the Chef in my broken Portuguese and he surprisingly speaks English :) He recommended to me a shrimp and crab dish based... read more

My review of last year of Moana was: brilliant cooking; great service. My review of my visit of next week however is: terrible, so: what is happening there? No decorum on the table, no forks handed, just 1 waiter, dry bread as a starter for Rs 30, smallest shrimps you can find, soft and sweaty with unwashed saladfor Rs 75... More

This is one of the best restaurant in Fortaleza area. Ask for the Moana Lobster, wonderful. They also have parking and it is nearby everywhere in Fortaleza.

Simply one of the best dining experiences I ever had. Besides the amazing view from my table facing the ocean, Chef Eduardo Sisi putted it together an amazing menu. I loved the mixture of classic dishes with the touch of local ingredients. I strongly recommend the Beff Ribs with the bbq sauce made with “Rapadura”. Outstanding service. I truly do... More

This is a great restaurant. We were there with a party of 8 and had a wonderful evening. The food was exquisite, the ambiance welcoming and the service was very attentive. Chef/owner Eduardo prepares his offerings with the touch of someone who loves what he does. This restaurant is worth a special trip to Fortaleza.

Tonight was the most magical night of dining. The chef took precious time away from his family at a moments notice to prepare a wonderful meal for us. It was the perfect blend of artistry and creativity with outstanding presentation and service. Our food was perfectly paired with the wine and each dish was selected with great care and pride....

We had a spectacular multicourse lunch here two weeks ago, organized by the enthusiastic Chef Eduardo Sisi. He is a talented chef and wonderful host. I suggest you let him pick the menu for you! We will be back when we next return to Fortaleza

The best serious restaurant in Fortaleza; most other restaurants in Fortaleza at Beira Mar are for (almost) visiting in beach-wear, but "Moana Gastronomia & Arte" is one of a small group of restaurants in Fortaleza were real cooking is done. Great Cordeiros, massas and Peitos. And: a good use of Trufa and fresh imported other ingredients. Moana is at Beira... More
