I have never tasted such a good, rich, shrimp dish before! It was amazing! I wanted to lick the bowl!! They served it with... More

My sister and I had the best dinner during our days in Ilha Grande in this place. By the beach, with live music, caipirinhas and a tasty pasta with tomato sauce and shrimp. Highly recommended. They accept credit cards and service is good as well. Portions for 2 are huge. You can share in 3 or 4 people.

Happened across this place on the beach. Tables on the sand with wonderful ambience. Friendly service and Amazing seafood risotto. My husband had the grilled fish and it was divine. It's rare to find such a pretty and natural beach setting !

This place is nicely situated at the beach away from the busy center of the 'town'. The food is good, especially the steak, but the risotto is not from risotto rice - but tasty. Portions are big and friendly staff. Good place for a nice evening.

We had a fabulous moqueca which was meant for two but we just could not finish it. It looked like it would feed four people! Service too was fantastic.

Here is "the place" you can experience the best fish or mix moqueca. This is a traditional dish cooked in a ceramic pan, which reaches high temperatures in a short time (15-20min). The place is very simple and nice, right next to the ocean, and it's special for couples to go at night and have a romantic dinner lit by... More

Terrific location on the beachfront, looking out over the water, with string lights. The service wasn't that great, but normal for Brazil. DO NOTE: the portion sizes are HUGE. So when it says it feeds two, know that it will feed at least three people. We had a large group of us and wasted at least 3 R$150 dishes this... More

This was our default spot during our stay on the island. It's in the perfect beach location. The menu is varied and has healthy options in addition to meats and fish and great cocktails. Check out barbecue nights. A little more expensive than some other places in town, but really great food!
