Surprising

We live nearby and had never gone. Tried their $10.95 lunch. It was delicious. My only complaint was there were more expensive lunches on the menu than $10.95 lunches.

The Moqueca pot with Ahi is amazing, the service is amazing as well.We always take friends visiting and end up ordering the same pot and everyone is so happy sharing that with us.

Every thing I've had has been incredibly tasty. Not overly salty and mild on the spices. A great variety and the serving is definitely enough for two.

The restaurant make a white fish dish that could feed a couple and two small kids. The wait staff were wonderful and very helpful with the area and the food. The dish was about 48 dollars but well worth it.

I checked Tripadvisor when I arrived in town and found that what would have appeared to be the prime seafood place seemed to have declined in quality. So, my friend and I end ed up at this excellent and busy Brazilian place and were more than a little pleased with our dinner, sharing one of the signature clay pot dishes... More

This restaurant offers a variety of very interesting Brazilian dishes, including gluten free and vegan. They have fish, seafood, and plantain moquecas, all served with rice. If you want a higher level of spicy, they provide a hot chili-type oil that you can add to your food, to taste. There are other meat dishes on the menu, but I did... More

Very nice small restaurant overlooking the marina in Oxnard. Very attentive service, they serve authentic Brazilian food, with specialities cooked in clay pots. Prices were reasonable and food fresh and good. I was a little underwhelmed by seasoning, I guess I thought Brazilian food would be more spicy but it is not, it is actually more on the sweet side....

Who knew we would get to see dancers and enjoy a fabulous meal? It was a girls weekend and we couldn't have lucked out with better food and wine! We had a ton of food and shared. The shrimp was amazing and the beef was to-die-for! Oh, and the fish! Yummy! The lobster was a bit over cooked but still... More
