It's very nice to discover a new place on vacation that turns out to be a gem. The service was excellent from the start, Carlos was funny and attentive and was well versed in each of the dishes offered. After the traditional Brazilian cocktails we tried three different appetizers including the baked scallops that are served on their shells. Each... More

This restaurant is special. The view overlooks the bay and there is outdoor seating as well. The food is all brazilian with a specialization in cooking in clay pots. This place also has brazilian beers and cocktails.

Moqueca offers a unique and cultural experience. Their menu selection is extensive, with options sure to please everyone. All of the choices we made were excellent, from the traditional and signature Moqueca dish even to the rice side dishes. We tried the Moqueca shrimp and white fish selections. The food was fresh and flavorful, but not too spicy. I would... More

We ate here for my BD and had a great meal from drinks on through to dessert. The calamari was the best we have had anywhere in years. The potato soup with collards was delicious and the main course, their signature Moqueca was splendid. I had it with shrimp, my husband had it with sea bass; we would definitely order... More

I had read the great reviews and looked forward to a wonderful dinner. Not so much. We went on a Sunday evening, not crowded at all. Got a scenic view of a wall. We ordered the lobster & shrimp moqueca for two ($74) and a side dish to share. The moqueca came and it was fine - nothing special, but... More

Great authentic recipes from Brazil cooked in a family owned and operated restaurant. Great Palm Salad for vegetarians and vegetarian Bobos! Entertainment on many weekends to really get the party started! Great for celebrations!

This is a nice quiet restaurant on the second floor, with a view of the Marina and the mountains to the east. The waiter. Knew the extensive menu and was able to provide helpful insights when comparing various dishes. He was attentive, without being smothering. I has the crab appetizer which was a great crab dip/spread. I had the seafood... More

Short and sweet... We had a great experience! Excellent food and wonderful service. We ordered feijaodi (made only on Sundays) and moqueca fish. Delicious!

We have dined here 3 times but will not return. The first time was on a New Year's Eve and the atmosphere was very celebratory with Brazilian dancers and music. The food was average but the service was friendly and prompt. We returned for a second visit thinking the food would improve without all the hoopla of a holiday but,... More
