Moqueca is an homage to the sea. It features dishes from southeastern Brazil, a cuisine that often utilizes seafood. From its awesome harbor views to thoughtful touches throughout the restaurant of fish sculptures you are reminded of what the restaurant celebrates. This establishment deserves nothing less than a 5 star rating, it completely embodies everything you want out of a... More

We went here to have dinner. We were not from the area and the waitress made some good recommendations. He was also very nice. We had the fish moqueca and caipirinhas and everything was delicious!

Excellent flavor of Brazil and the seafood, clay-pot dishes are outstanding. Friendly service, fair prices, easy parking and everything we tried was delicious. One of our new favorite spots by Channel Islands Harbor.

This taste I have not found anywhere. Great lunch specials that have the same dishes served in smaller clay pots. The flavor is delicious and they gave the hot chili oil that the owner has said she brings the chilis from Brazil. I look forward to coming here.

This lively little restaurant is nothing short of amazing. Who would think you would find aroundfine Brazilian cuisine in an Oxnard marina? The service is relaxed but professional, the servers knowledgeable about the menu, and the cocktails delicious. You can't go wrong eating here. But go easy on the cocktails! Cars exiting the marina are often subjected to traffic checks... More

The moqueca is fabulous. Great place for couples, families, special occasions. Sundays features special feijoda, and Rio Dancers. Fantastic flavors of all their dishes. I recommend the Fish and Lobster Moqueca, Paella Capixaba, Salada de Palmito. Nice selection of Brazilian cocktails too. Very nice appetizer selection too. Many times, all I order are appetizers, unless I'm getting their excellent moqueca.... More

I went with a group of ladies celebrating 4birthdays. We ordered a variety of different meals from their lunch menu. Not one of us was unhappy with our meal, rather there were only positive comments. Coming from 14 more mature ladies, speaks a whole lot. I then ordered 4 different deserts to celebrate. These deserts were out of world. We... More
