Great food!

we came last night with a few friends we have met in Brazil, had a great time. Food was superb, waiter spoke good English, not that it's essential! Definitely share a meal to get your money's worth.

Very good food. Prices not so good but, if you're smart, share the meals. They are usually good for two or more.

We had fish and dessert and all meals were perfect. Everyone was very friendly and tha atmosphere is also very nice. The portions sizes were very big, so I share with my friend. We also love the petit gateau =)

This is the best restaurant in Bonito. The food is great, with a good quantity and the prices are fair. The atmosphere is enjoyable. The problem is it crowd fast. Or you arrive early or you have to wait on line.

This was actually ther only good meal we had in Bonito. Ambient is not luxuriouis, but great. This is not a gourmet restaurant, but food tast was great. Try the pirarucu or the pirarara: absolutely fantastic fish. Do not miss the nutella petit gateau for desert.

The food is great! Drinks, service. The owner, Joao, will show up at you table to chat. He was able to bring the focus on service quality from São Paulo (he is from Santos), into Bonito, what indeed makes a great difference. It was more expensive than other meals we had in bonito (almost BRL 100 / person with just... More

We came to Casa do João on a trip to Bonito in February 2015. We found the food to be excellent quality, fish as well as beef, so we came back, three times in total.

This place is amazing. We had the Pirarucu da Chef Leo and it was delicious. The palm heart salad was also excellent. Staff were friendly, and the place had a great atmosphere. Deco is very interesting. All the wooden furniture is made from recycled and scrap wood. Would definatly recommend this place.
