We ate here on advice from other Tripadvisor users, and we weren't disappointed. The food is great, the price is reasonable, the drinks were tasty. Try the caipirinhas and the fish in passionate fruit sauce! Come early to get a table!

The fish with passionfruit sauce and zucchini was awesome. The staff was really nice but unfortunately they were super sleepy and the did not really look after you. We were really looking forward to a desert and another drink. But after 10 minutes of waiting and waving, we skipped it.

If you do not want to wait get here early or reserve a table. We waited over an hour. Also their speciality dish is the fish in passion fruit sauce. I love fish and I love passion fruit but this just was not right. The fish was doused in it and it was really over powering. Epic fail on our... More

Shared the spaghetti bolognese for 2 since it was quite reasonbably priced (Ilha Grande is an expensive island). Good meal, and great caipirinhas with passion fruit!

We had the best meat and risotto of our whole trip to Brazil here. It's not directly on the Beach like many of the other restaurants, but it's worth to go. Highly recommended to go!

We had grilled fish with passion fruit sauce, a typical dish of this area which we liked very much. Prices were also a bit higher than expected for this dish but still less that low quality/high priced beach restaurant food.

Stayed on the island and tried many different restaurants. This had the best food and service by some margin. The shrimp dish is particularly lovely. Other restaurants on the beach surprisingly score higher, we tried them all and found the food and service to be disappointing. Assume they have higher scores due to ambience/location only.

Thank Pilskie
