It's easier write a negative thing than all the good stuff about this amazing place! There are Mosquitos but so you should take repellent with you, and there aren't so many!

We were a party of 10, six adults and 4 teenager; we all enjoyed the food, atmosphere and the nice touch of all people serving us. There was Brazilian music and a wonderful night in a privileged place. I strongly recommend.

Following the trusted recommendations given by our host at our pousada and also being featured in our lonely planet guide, we were eager to try this restaurant. We are fans of seafood and were not disappointed. The restaurant is located right on the beach front. It was a truly amazing experience to see the stars and hear the waves as... More

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
