Excellent! No reservations on a Friday evening around 6pm and we still got in..Yeah. Food: Moqueca de peixe com camarao (Whitefish Alaskan Cod & Shrimp) for 2 and the Salada Anacapa were both delicious. This was actually too much food... we could have shared the entree for 1 with the salad. Service: Excellent Location: Excellent - view of the Harbor

I thought the food was excellent! The service was great but I was there right at 5:00 PM. The scallop appetizer was tasty and was cleaned without any sand. A little overdone but still good. The seafood in the clay pot was outstanding. I would highly recommend. My first Brazilian good. Yum!

Great restaurant with an amazing view of the harbor. The stroganoff and Brazilian rib- eye are our favorites. They have a nice selection of imported Brazilian beverages. certain dish on the menu may only be available on specific days.

Although the appetizers were somewhat interesting, the entrees didn't meet up to expectations. Most of us ordered steaks and all came up cooked well over our orders. My rice tasted fishy; not too palatable with a steak order. Service was ok, but disappointed the server or manager did not offer to take something off the bill as all of our... More

You go to a restaurant for the food as much as for the atmosphere. So I was seated with my wife at a table, but a bright overhead spotlight was shining directly into my eyes. i asked the waiter if he could dim the high beams. He said he could not but offered me another table. We moved, but after... More

Absolutely delightful clay pots of seafood with tantalizing sauces. Service is friendly and the location overlooks a portion of the Channel Islands Harbor. This is one of the better places to dine in Oxnard, and it could very well be the best. Recommended!

Thank Waterloonie
