We were visiting our old friends in Oxnard. They wanted to take us to one of their favorite dinner spots. My wife and I had never had Brazilian food before. This was a wonderful experience!! Service was friendly and professional. The owner (from Brazil) came by to check on us and chat a couple of times. Be sure to include... More

Having lived in Brazil years ago, I was excited to go to Moqueca. What a beautiful restaurant with a beautiful view! The food was beautiful too! It was a lovely presentation and so delicious! The owners take great care in offering authentic Brazilian cuisine and have something to please everyone. We went for our anniversary and loved. On a side... More

It's a little hard to find in the marina at Port Hueneme, but there's huge amounts of parking and all you have to do is walk upstairs. Beware of the Brazilian cocktails, they're so good you'll have to wait a couple of days to drive home. All the entree selections are superb. Don't miss if you're in the area.

we have been here a couple of times, the food is authentic (and we can know as we lived in Brazil and visited many times afterwards :)). service is good, little pricey and staff could be little more interactive for that price. but overall very good.

The location and ambiance are wonderful and the food is more than excellent! Right on the water, with authentic Brazilian decor and sometimes soft live music. The menu is not what people come to expect from Brazil, with just lots of meat, but is varied and authentic. The seafood selections are a wonderful blend of flavors and spices that you... More

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
