The Fish with banana and shrimp is the best! Ever time that I'm at Ilha Grande I have to go there, and the portion is really big, I use to order for one person when I'm going with another person, and for two when we are three or four people.

Good fish, music, service and pinacolada from marco is outstanding. And all this with sitting on the beach with nice view. We were already several times there and so far we were always happy with it.

Having been regular visitors to Ilha Grande, this restaurant remains our favourite. The food is decent and a portion for two can well feed three to four, average hungry people. The location is fabulous, on the beach front of Abraao beach, sitting under leafy Brazilian almond trees (beware the almonds are unedible! ) and the service is impeccable. Enjoy!

The servings in this place were huge.  The dishes for two could easily serve three maybe even four people while the dishes for one looked like they could feed two! We had a seafood stew type dish which had loads of seafood in it and was quite heavy. It was fine but I'm not sure I would order it again. ... More

The best coffee we had in Brasil, and their fresh fruit juices, caipirinhas and the seafood risotto were also very delicious.

Great spot for a caipirinia with the feet in the sand. Also great food. Get the Fish with Banana it's really good. Service can be as quick/slow as anywhere in brasil. The dishes for 2 persons actually are enough for three. Had a really good time there.

Tried the fish banana shrimp stew that they recommended (as mentioned by a lot of other commenters as well) and it was terrible. No herbs or spices were apparently used. Starters were better but as we waited over 30 min to get the bill and 40 for the last beer (which we never got but which was still added to... More
