We were guided by a local that did not know the place and was afraid of what we would find. What a great surprise. Really good meal! We ate the house star which is a breaded cherne fish stuffed with shrimp and cream cheese, ur friend had a Parisian chicken and everything was great. My son really enjoyed the walk... More

The moqueca is fantastic. We arrived at dusk, so could see the view, which is great as well. We were planning on walking there, but so glad that we chose to take a taxi as we felt we would have got lost on our way! Taxi knew exactly where to go!

I loved the restaurant, the gratinated fish with coconut milk was fresh and excellent. I will surely come back, because I was very well served too.

Highly rec the mixed seafood grill. We were not very hungry though ate almost the entire entree. The raw oysters also were so fresh and a treat...even for a lucky Los Angeles resident who has fresh Santa Monica seafood regularly. Staff were attentive and wonderful. I will absolutely return again on our next visit.

Nice outdoor area on the lagoon; nothing could be better for enjoying a dinner and refresh after a hot day. We started with good caipirinhas and went on with nice oysters. We had mixed seafood moqueqa for main course and it was excellent. The waiters' professionality leaves space for improvement.

Seafood was over-cooked, oysters awful, charged for food we didn't order and the waiter refused to take the item off of the bill. The server was unattentive during the meal and rude when asked about the additional charge on the check.

Nice place with beautiful view. The food is OK but not wonderful. We took the risk of taking some oysters, not a god idea - got sick. Service could also be better.

Typical Brazilian seafood house and cuisine. In front of Lagoa da Conceiçao. Beautiful view during daytime. Excellent dishes, parking lot.
