The food was good but a bit pricy if you compare it to the other restaurants in the neighbourhood. The staff was very friendly.

We have been going to Ilhabela for almost 20 yrs and IlhaSul was always a reference, unlikely we went there last week - after more than 4 yrs without stepping there - and was DISAPPOINTING !
The place is nice and clean, staff is helpful and the quality of the fish was amazing but the dressing was TERRIBLE !
We ordered pasta with cheese topping for the kids and the dressing was look like a "jello". Our fish was really well grilled but the topping was "almost the same" of the kids. I am sure they are using cornstarch or wheat flour to make it thicker. TERRIBLE TERRIBLE AND TASTELESS.
And, of course, prices are as high as usual, so there is no reason to go cheap in the finishing.....

The restaurant has a very romantic atmosphere but lacks air conditioning and has many mosquitos. The food we ordered "file de abadejo" was very appetizing and mouth watering but took a little too long for it to arrive. A bit overpriced but worth every penny.

In this seafood place the best part of the meal...was the potatoes. The shrimp were huge and delicious, the other seafood was outstanding, but the potatoes? Don't know what they do to their roasted potatoes but they are divine. I asked the waiter and he told us it is a secret of the chef. Therefore, it was not my imagination that something was wildly special about those 'tatoes.

We came to Ilhabella Sul as it was recommend by our host. The place is really nice, you can eat outside in the veranda. The service is fantastic. Portions are enough for two people. We ordered a white local fish, that came with veggies and amazing garlic potatoes. It has adjacent parking.
