Gets better every time I return

I have been here three times - and it only improved! The first time I had the fish stew with banana. It was only ok, but given the high price of the meal, I thought it did not worth it. The second and third times were this past weekend when I had, respectively, the 'Peixe à brasileira' (fish stew... read more

The problem seems to be that they are to few in the staff compared to the number of guests. It's taking very long time to make an order and they forgot orders so you need to remind them. Also they missed the main course in our bill, showing 65 Real instead of 210. When we pointed it out they corrected... More

Nice restaurant for seafood with several kinds of fish and moquecas. The place is also well located, right in the beach and there's life music (at least for dinner).

Great food, very nice atmosphere (especially when there is live music in the evenings), all in all a great place for lunch or dinner. Try the Moqueca Mixta and fruit caipirinhas.

On the beach dining in the main town on Ilha Grane. Not along the central boardwalk, and so a bit calmer than other restaurants in town. The seafood is great, and the offered light music in the evening. Also a lovely spot for a caipirinha or cold beer during the day or as a night cap.

The place is right at the beach in Vila do Abraão. Great place to eat with your feet on the sand. The service is really friendly and helpful and the food was quite tasty. It was a bit pricey, but same as other places in the area.

You will get more food than what u think. They have part of the menu that is for 2 people, and I think it's enough to feed 3 or 4. Great taste for all of it.

All portions in this restaurant are for at least two people, which they don't tell you when you order so we ended up with an embarrassing amount of food! Steak (2 large fillets with rice and chips!) was very nice and nicely cooked, although I got lucky there because I wasn't asked how I wanted it cooked. Himself loved the... More
