If you're really hungry, not the place. The food is good and the portions are nice. But be prepared to wait. It took us like 45 minutes to be served!!!

We just went for a late lunch and had the meat empanadas, they took a while to arrive but that was because they were freshly made and delicious. The best we have had in 4 weeks in Brazil, service was friendly although a little slow, there were also locals enjoying many wines and beers, a fun place

Service was a bit slow here, but when they finally served our moqueca it tasted just fine. They serve plenty of other plates. It is a bit on the expensive side though.

We ate here a few times in our 6 day stay and never had a bad meal!! The staff were super friendly and helpful though communication was difficult we never had an issue! We also spent lots of time playing cards and drinking beer here.

This is really a 3.5 - not quite good enough for 4 stores. The food was good - we had a fish stew type dish which was really good (although there was some grit from the shellfish). The service was friendly but a little slow. It is right on the beach front so good location.

In our time in Ilha Grande we had pasta, pizza, steak, chicken and juices from here, all were really good. The pasta wasn't overcooked and had lots of vegies in it, the pizza base was thin with crunch while retaining a bit of soft chewiness, the meat was tender and the juices freshly squeezed. It's simple food, done well. My... More
