The best option in Bonito

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. We had two types of local fish, Pirarara and Pintado, both excellent. We also had filet mignon beef. When it came a little overcooked at... More

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.

We tried there 3 differente dishes: Pirarucu da Chef Leo, Muqueca Pantaneira and Filé de Pirarara na Chapa (served with capares in a butter). Filé de Pirarara na Chapa was our favorites, perfect combination of flavours. Outstanding service.

This place was recommended by our pousada, and for good reason. The restaurant itself is really nicely designed and the atmosphere was fantastic. The place has a really nice story behind it, and made the place feel more unique - midway through the evening, Joao came round and greeted each table. All the staff were so friendly and service was... More

Honestly recommend the sharing platter! There's so much - it's healthy and unbelievably tasty. Staff were nice and helpful and all the furniture is made from reclaimed wood. Excellent value for money. My only criticism is the Nutella desserts were hyped up on the menu and turn out to be a simple lava cake with ice cream - tasty but... More
