We went there with a group of 10 persons and had a wonderful night there. We were able to make a reservation upfront to sit on a large table on the beach right by the sea. They serve huge portions - even though the dishes are made for two persons, it was not possible for us two to finish the... More

Good but overpriced. I had "pesce a la brasielera " a sea bass from a fish farm nearby, not bad but some kind of international cooking Brazilian style, so not spicy a bit insipid.... Anyway if you're really hungry portions are really big so you don't really waste your money.... and anyway there's not really better option here... just by... More

Dining on the beach, while a duo plays beautifull bossa nova music, that made us start to dance immediately. There is a wide range of food and good wine that can be ordered by the glass, opposite to many restaurants around that only serve bottles.

We had a very enjoyable meal at Lua e mar. We shared the seafood risotto it was fresh and tasty with plenty of seafood. The staff were helpful, the view was spectacular and the atmosphere good. However the meal was very expensive and although the food was nice it was nothing special. Certainly didn't think it should be rated the... More

The food is really good, and the resturant is located on the beach at a lovely spot. However, it is pretty expensive compared to Brazil and South Americal in general. But if you came to a short vacation (I traveled 4 months), don't miss this place.

It was our last meal in the island. We only had one hour to eat if we wanted to get to the boat on time. The waitress promised the food would be ready in twenty minutes, and it really was. We had grilled sole with real fries (not the frozen, pre cooked stuff, but fries like my mother used to... More

We went here for my birthday and my girlfriend organised a cake with them. They were able to source a cake and put candles on for me which was a great touch. The music and atmosphere was great and the seafood was really nice

Very tasteful dishes especially the seafood Moqueca.The price is a bit high but saying that some of the dishes for two would feed three or even four if you are having entrees. The service is very friendly and the setting right on the beach makes it a lovely setting.

Lovely food, very tasty and enormous portions. Kept on eating even when already full because it was so good. Nice atmosphere and live bossa nova/ samba music. Had a great time there.
