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

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!
