Dinner

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!

Like all the other beach restaurant, it is in a wonderful setting. We shared a seafood risotto (far too large for one) and it was filled with a lot of seafood and not just a few pieces. Great service too!

Good place to eat on the beach. Especially nice for the evening. Try to hot pots with fish and bananas.

Restaurant on the beach, Brazilian food and service! Try the fish soup. You can dine on wooden tables by candlelight, very romantic!

Great food, lovely setting. Ate there during the day and evening - several times. Having been scuba-diving for the morning, my dream was to find a place to eat, then sleep - ideally in the same place. We stopped at Lua e Mar to eat, then moved from the table to the sun-chairs by the sea where we sipped on... More
