We wanted to eat off property and some place that was within walking distance. Well, it was within walking distance and it was a lovely walk on the beach. That is the end of the positives. Food was mediocre and service was mundane while cost...More

We stopped in after shopping the farmers market and were pleasantly surprised by the delicious food . We had the plantains and steak appetizers.

Was in the area and used TripAdvisor to find a good meal. Although leary of sterotypic 'Brazilian' food, it was highly rated so my friend and I went. So-so interior, but had an all window perimeter looking over the harbor. Funky laminated color menu, with...More

For a different taste of Brazil this is a great experience. A couple can share a dish and appetizer and you can still go home with leftovers. The Tortinha De Palmito appetizer was a meal in itself! We had the Fish Moqueca and the fish...More

Visited while on a business trip. The food and service were excellent. The fried plantains and the steak were really tasty. The moqueca was also really good. Big enough to share.

I thought the food was excellent! The service was great but I was there right at 5:00 PM. The scallop appetizer was tasty and was cleaned without any sand. A little overdone but still good. The seafood in the clay pot was outstanding. I would...More

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.

Yes, they have a wine list. I don't know about the corkage fee. We didn't bring a bottle of wine but I wish we had thought of it.
