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

The food at Moqueca is excellent. Service is excellent too. In the Marina district of Oxnard, which is why it is a bit overpriced, I guess. Drinks are not overpriced and delicious.

My husband and I stopped by for an early Saturday evening dinner. We didn't have a reservation, but didn't have to wait for a table. Our server, Tatiana, was enthusiastic and educated us about the entree choices. We shared the delicious hearts of palm salad, and my husband had the steak while I ordered a half order of the shrimp... More

This is the only Brazilian restaurant in the area and it is outstanding. Very fresh fish, meats dove very well and served by a great staff. Along with unusually tasty cocktails this is a place to visit and enjoy. Be sure to ask the server about the food and be adventitious!

I wasn't expecting this place to be incredible! From the exterior, I didn't expect the atmosphere to be so fun, the food so delicious, and the entertainment was lively! Our group of six had a most memorable evening with the lively, raucous music and dancing. We loved the food and the drinks were delicious. I highly recommend it for a... More

TripAdvisor came through again with a most wonderful dining recommendation — this time with the Moqueca Brazilian cuisine — a style of cooking seafood in a large heavy clay pot served piping hot at the table. The three of us selected the white fish and prawns in a thick savory tomato-based sauce redolent of garlic, cilantro, onions, olive oil, and... More

I went to this restaurant to test a Brazilian Moqueca and it was good. But I think, the service could be more nice and friendly and not so cold, especially for a Brazilian Restaurant, it doesn’t fit.
