“Superb pizzas!”

Restaurante Jorge Grego
Ranked #26 of 80 Restaurants in Ilha Grande
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 9, 2016 via mobile

Tourist trap restaurant right on the beach and near the pier.

Expected high prices and average quality but received an exceptionally good pizza at good value too.

Recommend you share a GG (v big) pizza between two and ask them to split the toppings down the middle.

We had the jerked beef on one half and shrimp on the other. Extremely good quality.

Live music from their upstairs bar (we ate on a table on the sand) was good (although a small surcharge was added to the bill for it).

The local stray dogs came over looking for scraps but weren't overly aggressive.

All in all, v convenient location great food and good value. Staff even helped call us a water taxi back to our hotel afterwards.

Food: plates are made for two; they will make a plate for 1 at 60% of the price. We ordered a grilled salmon with maracujá (passion fruit) sauce. The sauce calm on the side, which was a bit strange however preferred as my gf wanted the sauce and I did not. The plate came with deliciously roasted potatoes and a nice mix of sauteed veggies. The portion was quite large, easily leaving us both quite satisfied.

Most of the tables around us had ordered a pizza which looked quite delicious.

Caipirinhas were delicious. I've had my fair share and I truly enjoyed theirs.

Service: for those of you unfamiliar with Brazil, it's quite common (and generally acceptable) to raise your hand to call the waitor. It was quite crowded the night we went and the waitress did not come by without being called. However, she was quite helpful and willing to chat and make us laugh. No complaints.

This is a Brilliant place with great food. Super tasty appetizer salmon tartare and bruschetta! Absolutely top! The best I've ever had. We were served by 2 different waiters and they were both extremely friendly and helpful. Even though the place was crowded and we were on the beach. Caipirinha was great ! Only bad thing is that they serve the Belgian beer Stella Artois way too cold ,...

We went to Jorge Grego very excited, as it seemed a great place from the outside. We didn't make it through the appetizer... On the menu it was written Thai shrimps, with cashew nuts. When it arrived, it was shrimp with pineapple and celery (it may seem a good description, but trust me, it was definitely no good). When we asked the waiter he replied that they did not have peppers so the chef replaced it to celery and that the chef forgot about the cashew nuts. Well then... We tried the shrimp and, after a small bite, decided it wasn't worthy to spend more time or money there. Worst food experience on the island!
