We had heard good things about Moqueca and we were not disappointed. My wife had the Ensalada Anacapa, which was hearty and fresh. I had a chicken breast dish that was tasty, filling and had a wide variety of textures and flavors. This is a good spot to try for lunch or dinner.

If you don't know what to order, stick with the standards and you will be amazed ... get a Moqueca with cod or lobster and a Caipirinha to make you feel warm and fuzzy. This is not traditional Brazilian food, this is truly something special. However, on your first trip here, and there will be many more, stick with the... More

Had dinner there on July 4th when the Harbor was hopping for the holiday. Hadn't been there in awhile but it was still the wonderful food and service I remembered. And the bonus this time was the Samba dancers. They also had live guitar music. My grandkids loved it! I get the Spaghetti Bolagnase, which I love. My daughter loves... More

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.
