I had lunch with business contacts at the Estrela do Mar. The restaurant is located in front of the ocean with a beautiful view to the sea. The food was excellent. We had two big moquecas mistas (seafood and fish with tomato and coconut sauce) with plenty of fish, shrimps, lobsters and other seafood. It was perfect. The waiter told us that each moqueca was sufficient for two people. We order two only (good for 4) and we were 6 people and not able to eat all, although it was delicious. Highly recommend it.

I am a vegan and this place usually serves seafood and steak. They cooked me spaghetti in olive oil and garlic and provided a cooked side of veggies (squash, potatoes and carrots) all around $5 US. It was a large amount of food and tasty.

I ordered Muqueca Mista, supposed to come with lobster, shrimp, fish, claw.
Problems: 1) no lobster; 2) shrimp not clean; 3) not good taste; 4) veeeeery expensive (R$84,00 / usd 40); 4) service not good, taking tooo long to prepare the platez
Coffee and pineapple juice are good and a nice view in the 2nd floor.
So, I recommend you avoid this restaurant...

Ocean front, Table clothes and waiters in uniforms.but not pretentious. We had grilled fish with molho do manga e maracuja ( Mango and Passion fruit sauce ) ..the fish was grilled perfectly, a little crunch on the outside, moist and not overcooked inside, the sauce was spectacular passion fruit with pieces of mango..Delicious.. Pitcher of Coconut water and an appetizer of crab, which was spectacular as well..Portions were a good size and the dish was for 2 people, It included rice with broccoli and baked whipped squash (called Jerimum, orange like a pumpkin) with cheese on top.
For 2..was Just under R$100 ($45 dollars).
