The food at this little gem of a restaurant, hidden in a nondescript little shopping center, is nothing short of amazing. I've been all over Brazil on several occasions, and never had food that was so delicious. The decor, however, could use some work.

The location in the Oxnard marina is really nice. The Restaurant is upstairs and has windows all around. There is an enclosed patio, but on a rare hot breezeless day it was a bit warm and empty. At 12:30 there were only two other tables...More

No - It's specializes in seafood cooked in a moqueca clay pot and it's wonderful. They have a wide variety of dishes that are all delicious, even beef stroganoff if you must have beef.
