Excellent fish dish

I had the snook, Robalo, that was special. Huge portion! Snook is only allowed to be fished back home for two months of the year, making this snook extra special. Diner was a little expensive, as everything in brasil seems cheap at 3 to 1 now. Right on the beach near historic district of... read more

Words cannot describe the quality and quantity of food served. We spent a long time looking for somewhere to eat good quality seafood and what a find this was. It was the low season so practically empty which meant the service was perfect, the staff were helpful and patient with our muddled Portuguese. Then came the food and, wow! I... More

Peixe com banana does incredible seafood. We ordered seafood soup, mussels in vinaigrette and then a huge platter of grilled abajado with mixed seafood. It was all delicious. The portions were very generous and the prices were reasonable given the quality and quantity of food. It is in a good setting overlooking the bay. We visited in low season, so... More

Best place I have been so far in Ubatuba for seafood. The "Abadejo a moda da Casa" was sensational. I have been in a low season and there was no more than 3 tables occupied, so everything was simply perfect (food, service, price). Great value for families, as the size of portions are good and they don't save anything... I... More

The food was good but the service was lousy! I had to pick up my drinks that were sitting on the bar for more than 15 minutes waiting for the waitress. We were in a party of 7 and the order was brought to the table and just left for us to serve ourselves, this in a long table. A... More

Three of us ate dinner at Peixe com Banana on a Sunday night, at the recommendation of our host at Pousada de Ana Doce. We had a mixed salad and a calderada for two that was more than enough for three - a fact that the server pointed out to us beforehand. Everything was delicious, and the staff was very... More

If you look for variety, this is not the place. Their specialty is a fish cooked in a rustic ceramic bowl, with onions tomatoes and bananas - among other things. Going there, ask if they have the grilled palm as a starter, which is to die for.
