Cute restaurant on the beach where you go to eat some good fish. We had some grilled filet but they also make a selection of dishes/stews for 2, you can also ask for 1 person dishes but they seem to come for 2. They also offer risottos and pastas but I wouldn't necessarily come there for this. Nice atmosphere and... More

Probably best meal we had on ilha grande, a moqueca de peixe, and a dish of fried fish. Good portions, good taste, good quiet location on the sand. Friendly waiter. Recommended

You can sit on the beach with the waves lapping at your feet under the table! Good service and delicious local Moquecca and seafood. Great Caipirinhas too.

This was our favourite place on the island! Friendly staff, huge portiions (a dish for 2 feeds 3), strong drinks, and a lovely place directly on the beach. The atmosphere is enhanced by a set of candles and the great view of the bay. Their sea food spaghetti are amazing! They also have a great variety of fresh fish. Prices... More

The Fish with banana and shrimp is the best! Ever time that I'm at Ilha Grande I have to go there, and the portion is really big, I use to order for one person when I'm going with another person, and for two when we are three or four people.

Good fish, music, service and pinacolada from marco is outstanding. And all this with sitting on the beach with nice view. We were already several times there and so far we were always happy with it.

Having been regular visitors to Ilha Grande, this restaurant remains our favourite. The food is decent and a portion for two can well feed three to four, average hungry people. The location is fabulous, on the beach front of Abraao beach, sitting under leafy Brazilian almond trees (beware the almonds are unedible! ) and the service is impeccable. Enjoy!

The servings in this place were huge.  The dishes for two could easily serve three maybe even four people while the dishes for one looked like they could feed two! We had a seafood stew type dish which had loads of seafood in it and was quite heavy. It was fine but I'm not sure I would order it again. ... More

Literally on the sand with feet in the water. The food is delicious and the plates for 2 are very generous.. It is recommended by locals and I can see why...
