Best option in Abrao

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

Loved this restaurant, I only wish we had of discovered it before our final night on the island. I had one dish in mind when coming to Ilha Grande and that was the fish stew moqueca. On our first night on the island I ordered moqueca at a different restaurant and I was soooo disapointed - it had no flavour.... More

We spent 4 days in the Grand island and had dinner 3 days in Lua & Mar. The Muqueca is fantastic and serves two easily. We also had fish with passion fruit sauce (take the badejo well worth). Finally, we had a shrimp muqueca. Service was friendly. Price is in the high side, but matches the quality.

A bit disappointed by this place which seemed to have good reviews on TripAdvisor. You would go there for a nice spot on the beach but the food is not so good and the service is just ok. We ordered a grilled fish and they served us a fried one which was anything but tasty. Prices are a bit expensive... More

We had excellent moqueca. The staff are really great. You can feel how fresh is their food. And to complete there are table on the sand. Lovely place!

Huge portions of delicious food with your toes in the sand. Great service - they're never full - they just add more tables on the beach! Best of the restaurants we tried - we found that at other places we had to wait an hour at least to get our food. Here service was much smoother but perhaps that just... More
