Incredible food - incredible jungle like place - no mosquitoes (i dont know how) - and full service. In my opinion - and after eating in a lot of them - Manaca is one of the best restaurants in the whole litoral.

One of the best restaurants on the state's coast. Great fresh seafood, attentive service. Although located in the Camburi beach of the São Sebastião município, it is closer to Bertioga.

It was my fifth time probably there. Good quality usually. Quite overpriced. Nice place. We were in a group of 10. I called them for reservation but only possible up to 8 pm. We decided to go by 10 pm to get the second shift. Once there it was quite empty. Horrible attention. Owner was not there. I felt they... More

We went there with 10 friends, expecting the best of the best in the region. Unfortunately the disposition of the manager and the waiters was so unacceptable that we ended up leaving. Too bad!

When holidaying in the area of São Sebastião this is a must go to restaurant for a more upmarket dining experience. The restaurant is set on a wooden structure deep inside a dense forest (not far from the main road) and it looks amazing. The service and food are top quality and the price of course will be steeper than... More

Great experience, the environment are very nice. The tree around, candlelight and the bungalows make the place very majestic. The fish food are fantastic. Who goes to Camburi must go there.

The location in the middle of the rainforest is fantastic, but insect repellant is a must - ordered the squid starter and two risottos, the lobster and the seafood. The squid was well cooked and tender, and while the sauce was tasty and original, there was too much of it. The lobster risotto was tasty but there was too much... More
