“The coolest place on the beach”
Review of Cafe do Mar

Cafe do Mar

Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night
Description: This is one of a string of restaurants on the beach just outside the center of town that don't actually have addresses (as far as I know). Others of its ilk are included in major guide books, like Foder's. I'd really like to give this restaurant a review because it was amazing food, fantastic atmosphere, and wonderful, English-speaking staff (a rarity on the island). Thanks!

I'm sitting at the cafe now, watching the day go by. Its the third day in a row I've ended up here. I naturally gravitated to the music, the comfortable chairs, the wonderful people (Josefina makes a great drink!), the velvety smooth coffee and the wifi that actually works. It's a good life at cafe do mar.

The ambience is delightful: sitting on the beach, by candlelight. The food is incredible: Barbequed met, chicken, prawns or cheese with rice, veggies and salad. Large portions, well presented. A great place for a night out.

We went to the Wednesday barbecue at Cafe do Mar - it is just the perfect combination of amazing food (we had the barracuda and chicken and both were perfect), great drinks, and location - it is set right on the water, so you can hear the waves lapping onto the shore. This was probably the best meal we had on Ilha Grande.

Great location on the beach. Friendly staff. BBQ nights on alternate evenings are fantastic. Had the BBQ and normal menu during our stay, all food great and reasonably priced. 5 Min walk along the beach from the main pier.
