Great location

Me and my partner were staying at the Pousada next door (Pousada Manaca) we had just arrived to the island around 1.30pm and wanted to drop our bags and eat somewhere for lunch, it was recommended to us by the Pousada owner. The menu was great and also in English too so could easily understand what... read more

The food was great both times I ate there, but the price was a little bit too much, on par with prices of fancier restaurants in the mainland. I had a casquinha de siri (R$ 15,00) and then shared a seafood spaghetti with a friend (R$ 125,00). Both were good, but not awesome. Also, the service was a little bit... More

Our last meal on the island was here and we had the seafood risotto for 2 people- it was amazing! The rice was tender, the sauce was creamy and seasoned well, and the seafood cooked just right!

My girlfriend and I ate here on a beautiful cloudless night under the stars and canopy of the tree outside the restaurant (lit with lanterns made from buoys). We had (like most others) fish stew which was delicious, and as seems to be common on IG served for 2 people. Lua e Mar loses one star because of the price... More

We were staying at Naturalia and this is very close along the beach. Wonderful setting and great food- we really enjoyed it. We didn't find the need to venture any further away.

Here it is all about the Moquequa (Brazilian fish stew). Order 1 for 2 people. It is served in huge portions.

I stopped at night for a drink, attracted by the good live music played outside. Sitting under the great tree with lamps hanging from the branches, while looking at the ocean and listening to soft music: yes, definitely a special moment.

I got the fish stew for 1 which is 60% of the price as they serve it for two usually. It was delicous and came with a large portion of rice and some sort of bean sauce. I got a glass of red wine with it which i was dissapointed to realise on my bill was $20! I should have... More

this restaurant seems very nice but a part from the prices (really expensive) the quality of the seafood wasn't good. We got sick!

This place was recommended by the manager at our Pousada (Naturalia) and we were not disappointed. A little rustic, like everything on the island, the welcome was lovely and we survived ordering with phrase-book Portuguese. We ordered the Moqueca, having not tried one of Brasil's national dishes and ordered a portion for one person which my wife and I shared... More
