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!

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

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

Best caipirinhas I had on Ilha grande. But get the caipirinha especial with decent cachaca. Ambience was pretty nice, I would also go there for food next time.

This place is right on the beach and has a good selection of authentic Brazilian food. We had the fish curry with bananas and it was a big portion enough for 3-4 people. The service is good and the prices are ok, can be a bit pricey but we think its worth it. Defiantly worth a visit when in Ilha... More

Maybe this restaurant is overrated because the island doesn't offer lots of top restaurants (they are mostly simple) and tends to be expensive in general (difficult logistics and tourist prices)....but I was disappointed from all the excellent reviews I'd read on this site. I live in Rio, which is an expensive city, and a touristic place, and you get much... More

Got a fish with bananas. Around 70 dollars! The bowl came with very small and few shrimps and fish. Nothing special. The best part is the location, but don't expect anything about he food it's just regular and expensive.

Had a meal here with my husband. Lovely setting on the beach, in early evening the tide comes right up to the tables which is very peaceful and pleasant. Had nice cocktail there and service was pretty good. My husband had crab and the steak and said both were above average. I had a pasta dish which was pretty nice... More

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!
