Absolutely delightful clay pots of seafood with tantalizing sauces. Service is friendly and the location overlooks a portion of the Channel Islands Harbor. This is one of the better places to dine in Oxnard, and it could very well be the best. Recommended!

They have brazilian food but it is not rodizio style. You can find good latino flavors, good drinks, etc Prices are higher than normal but dishes sizes are ok to share I would recommend for couples or grown ups, not too much kid friendly.

Love the Moqueca. I am often chilled after a day out on the water and this Brazillian stew warms me up.

Response from Connie K | Reviewed this property |
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.
Do they have a wine list and a corkage fee?

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.
