This restaurant is special. The view overlooks the bay and there is outdoor seating as well. The food is all brazilian with a specialization in cooking in clay pots. This place also has brazilian beers and cocktails.

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.
