Really tasty lunch here of fish stew with bananas - delicious! Also recommend the ginger caipirinha - the best I've had during my whole trip to Brazil. Really enjoyed lunch here, right by the seashore with the water lapping over our feet - very picturesque.

Love everything about it. The beach, the wonderful food, the size (we were a couple with 2 kids and 1 dish was hard to finish), English speaking, smiling people, inside and outside options. Fresh food, so good.

A very simple salad costs up to U$15,00 and it was not even tasty. Some green leaves, tomatoes and some dressing that was supposed to be mangoes.

I had the best passion fruit caipirinha there. The service was slow but the amazing food made up for it. The portion sizes are very big. We made the mistake to order an appetizer and one meal. We regret ordering the appetizer because the meal was so big (and delicious).

Really enjoyed the food here. Was recommended by our tour company and it didn't disappoint. The service was great and the food better. I enjoyed the crab in she'll for entree and then the calamari risotto. The crab was amazing and would make a great main. The risotto was lovely as well and the serving size for one was massive...

Location: Just outside of town, right on the beach. Food: A group of three split the shrimp moqueca. It was very nicely done. Savory is the best to explain this, not spicy like some of the moquecas I've had in the Salvador/Bahia area. Staff: We used basic Portuguese to communicate, though the two servers who helped spoke enough English to... More

Very much enjoyed my meal at Lua e Mar. Lovely location on the beach was special at sunset time. The stewed fish and shrimps with bananas was exacty what I wa loking for - local flavors beautifully presented. Highly recommend it - I myself will go there again before I leave the island.

Had the shrimp stew with rice. Absolutely amazing flavours, There is live music in the evenings as well, which is very good. Minor point - staff could be a bit more customer friendly.

Great location on the beach. Wonderful food, we chose a dish for 2, a type of seafood stew(no 14) although the wait was quite long,about 40 mins it was worth it and we were entertained with live good music while we waited. Also worth the $175 Brazilian Reals(approx £45) It's only a shame that wine in Brazil is so expensive

We stayed on Ilha Grande for 5 nights and this was the only restaurant we visited twice. Had great food on both occasions. The staff are friendly and helpful. Would recommend.
