The best coffee we had in Brasil, and their fresh fruit juices, caipirinhas and the seafood risotto were also very delicious.

Great spot for a caipirinia with the feet in the sand. Also great food. Get the Fish with Banana it's really good. Service can be as quick/slow as anywhere in brasil. The dishes for 2 persons actually are enough for three. Had a really good time there.

Tried the fish banana shrimp stew that they recommended (as mentioned by a lot of other commenters as well) and it was terrible. No herbs or spices were apparently used. Starters were better but as we waited over 30 min to get the bill and 40 for the last beer (which we never got but which was still added to... More

Sitting right on the beach, but far from the bustle of the town. The service was young and enthusiastic, Food is very good. Good for couples but they accomodate groups. We went there almost every night, sometime even for a drink.

This was our favourite restaurant. You sit with the sand between your toes, looking over the harbour, chilling out with your first caipirinha. It is impossible not to be happy. Menus are similar in most of the restaurants but the food was done very well and the staff friendly and attentive. It is busy but that's understandable. We wish we... More

Lua e Mar is in a great location a little further out of Abraao which definitely gives it an edge over the other beachside restaurants. Lovely atmosphere. We had a great waiter who recommended the fish cooked with banana which was strangely delicious! Definitely one of the best restaurants on the island.

This place is right on the beach, away from the village so it's really nice and relaxing. It's not perfect but the service was generally efficient and friendly, The portions are big and the food quite nice. Overall a lovely place to relax in Ilha Grande.

The restaurant has tables and chairs on the beach as well as inside dining. Lovely location looking out to the sea, the food we had was good. The service was fair as little english was spoken by our waiter, the food arrived prior to plates and condiments.
