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

Casa do joão (João's house) is not really a restaurant, it is the house of a new friend. There you'll find not only wonderdful home recipe dishes, mostly to be shared by two, but also a lovely ambiance. It will be the perfect match with all the beautiful and intense natural beauty of Bonito. May João keep his cozy house... More

This was an absolutely wonderful experience. Friendly folks and a relaxing open-air ambiance. Prices are reasonable and certainly good value given the quality of the dishes on offer. After nearly two months traveling around in Brazil, I'm pretty much addicted to friend manioc - and I wasn't disappointed here. A wonderful appetizer. I was here with my girlfriend and we... More

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.
