Seafood for days

Such good food and staff were lovely. They understood some English as well. The restaurant was right on water so the waves came close to the table which was awesome. Make sure to carry big spray!

Had 2 dinners in this nice place and the food was awesome. It's easy to notice they use great quality products for their dishes. The staff and the atmosphere are also lovely. This place is a must in Ilha Grande!

Hubby & I had the same meal - fish stew from the same pot with banana on a lovely evening, which we enjoyed. Pleasant staff. Problem was I was ill all night. It should be noted that there was a huge storm the night before & most/ many establishments were using generators as the power had only been partly reconnected... More

Lua e Mar has wonderful food 20 feet from the beach. I had excellent moqueca and pina colada in romantic setting. They were kind enough to set up an outdoor table for me. Good service.

We had a lovely sausage and onion starter and seafood risotto for main. The portions are huge and reasonably priced. Staff were very helpful, I would return.

It's a nice spot on the beach, and I believe this has inflated the reviews. The food was ok, but all our other meals on the island were better - take for example Bar Aperitiv on Abraaozinho (short taxi boat from Abraao). It's never easy to pinpoint where you got an upset stomach, but we both did after this place... More

This restaurant is not only serving excellent food, but it is located in a dream location. The food offered is fresh and delicious. You can seat outside, on the beach, just a few meters from the water. Dining there at sun set is one of the great images I keep from my visit.

The moqueca for two with fish and shrimp was terrific. Just a nice place all around. Also good beer choices.

The view is very nice because it is in front of the bay. It is a very calm place if you seat in the tables on the beach. The food is perfect, the moqueca is absolutely great! The natural juices are very good and the staff is nice!
