Excellent food. Inventive and Different.

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.

Read a review of this restaurant in the Buffalo News so we headed here when we visited Oxnard!! Overall- enjoyed the tomato based seafood dinners but thought they didn't have a wide selection of local wines at a reasonable cost. The food was good. Calamari excellent. Enjoyable evening at the harbor.

This place could get missed as it is located above a real estate office and other stores. We had the most interesting brazilian food here.
