On recommendations from several locals and guide books we went here for dinner. Like most places in Brazil they have several dishes which can be shared by two people which are good value for money. Everything on the menu looked very good and interesting (original flavours and combinations). We tried the grilled pintado in a house specialty sauce which was... More

This restaurant is wonderful. They got everything right; from the food, to the decor, to the ambience. The staff are all very friendly. I asked one the difference between 2 dishes and his response was This one "is better"! They even encouraged us to order down so as not to have too much food. To cap it all off Joao... More

Not only the fish is amazing, but the staff is polite and prepared, the atmosphere is nice and cozy, prices are reasonable and portions serve a couple, and Joao is a hard working guy that wants to guarantee you will come back. Lovely.

There was a flyer at out Pousada reception for this place, which made me think it would be a tourist rip off. But Bonito isn't exactly jumping in April - in fact it looks like a very one-eyed town at any time of year - and this seemed the only viable choice. And it turned out to be a good... More

My wife and I have Eaten here twice. Both times it was fantastic. The first time we eat fish. It tasted delicious and the second time we eat grilled filet mignon and again we had a superb meal. We can recommand casa do joao the every one.

Expected more after reading all reviews. Fried fish leads the menu. Good atmosphere, excellent service and fair price. Food is ok - average... don't expect innovative tastes.

After seeing all the hype about the place, we decided to go there for dinner. We arrived early and it was definitely worth doing so, as after a while it was already with waiting area. The food was nice, but not amazing. The steak with mango sauce was quite good, but mainly due to the sauce (which is counterintuitive).

A very vivid restaurant. Recommended by our guide. No clue if the restaurant was filled with locals or tourists. But the atmosphere was great. Good service. And the food was great. Good portions and good flavour. Would love to visit it again.
