We went to the restaurant few times. The food was varied and good at an appropriate price. The service was excellent when the owner Mr. Joaozinho was present in the restaurant. When he was not there we suffered the problem of long delays hardly explicable because the restaurant was not crowded at all.

We went to this restaurant based on the recommendation from the receptionist at our hotel. The food was incredibly delicious! When we arrived, parking was tough as it is simply a roadside restaurant without a parking lot. But the view was incredible as it was right across the street from the beach. We did have to wait for a table because the restaurant was very crowded. All the waitstaff was busy and it took a while to place our order (it appeared that they needed more waiters working that evening). We ordered our main course and an appetizer buffet that they charged you a fee per 100g of food. Even though the appetizer was delicious, the total cost was outrageous- we're convinced they charged us for the weight of the plate more than the weight of the food. When the main course arrived- it was more than we expected. Everything was delicious and fresh, and there was so much food we almost had trouble finishing it all. The night we had dinner here, they had a live band playing right next to us. It was annoying/disorganized at first when they were setting up, but by the time they started playing for real- it was enjoyable, almost like 'Brazilian Jazz.' We would certainly go back given the opportunity to do so.

The prices of this roadside restaurant are surprisingly high for the simplicity offered. You expect an explanation from above average food quality and are really disappointed when you get your dish. I do no recommend this place! You get much better food in a nicer environment for the same price or the same quality for half the price anywhere else in Ilhabela.

The food is so-so but the delay was too long. We waited about 90 min for our order. The waiters were nice but no way...

Joãozinho's restaurant is a small and cozy place right in front of the beach. I've ordered "camarão no catupiry" and it was delicious and enough for my wife and I. I don't know if it always happens but there was a great acustic band playing on the beach which enhanced that moment. The price is fair to the meal and the waiters are really kind.
