Authentic Brazilian cuisine. One of the better restaurants in all of Oxnard. I recommend a Moqueca dinner served in clay pots - very authentic,

Maybe I just don’t like this style of food. But the service was very slow and everything was fish or carbs. I don’t do either of those. It was expensive too.

No - It's specializes in seafood cooked in a moqueca clay pot and it's wonderful. They have a wide variety of dishes that are all delicious, even beef stroganoff if you must have beef.
