The Moqueca is a wonderful restaurant in the harbor area. The fish stew is fabulous which brings us back whenever we are in town. Great flavors, authentic cuisine, good service and great food. Can’t wait for our next visit. Very quiet at the lunch hour...More

Went to lunch and ordered a different item than usual, and i was pleasantly surprised! Had the Stroganoff with rice and chicken it was delish! We'll keep coming back to this fabulous lunch spot.

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.

Yes, they have a wine list. I don't know about the corkage fee. We didn't bring a bottle of wine but I wish we had thought of it.
