We went to this place based on Trip Advisor recommendations as well as an American we ran into on the island. The food was actually pretty good, but the staff seemed to be very annoyed to have to server a table of 6 people. Oh, and they skimmed my credit card and immediately used it online. Luckily my credit card... More

It was a nice restaurant to visit! Large food portions ! It's a little joke about the restaurant name and the NY metropolitan city!

This place is good for groups. It has a nice atmosphere and great food for a fair price. Badejo Recheado surely is a must try, it is even better to eat it while watching the sunset. If you're around you must check.

We had a good experience at the restaurant, the food was ok, the view was very nice. Service was ok, until the moment we had the opportunity to listen to some stories from Ilhabela by the place's owner, Tuca, a great story teller.

After a dredful car travel, we finnaly reached the restaurant. We were starving, and the place was almost empty. The owner himself was waitering and took our orders. Me and a friend split a fish plate and it was DIVINE. So cheap and so amazing. When you are in Ilhabela you HAVE to come here, it's food to die for.

We were so looking forward to stopping at this restaurant after a four hour hike to the nearby waterfalls in the pouring rain and we weren't disappointed. We were a bit shocked by the price list at first, but the informed us that most of the dishes feed 3-4 people, so our shrimp and rice dish was perfect for 4... More

The road to get there is very beautifull, you can see in the way the south side of ilhabela. Getting there you will find an excellent restaurant with good food, service and view... don't forget, as soon as you get there, to put some of the citronela oil, in every exposed part of your body, or the mosquitos will eat...
