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.

My girlfriend and I stopped at Lua e Mar for our first lunch on the island. We ordered the linguado grilled fish dish covered in passion fruit sauce. The food was exquisitely prepared but the portions (presumably sufficient for a party of two) fell short. The prices were also eye-watering. The fish dish combined with a pineapple juice and a...

It's easier write a negative thing than all the good stuff about this amazing place! There are Mosquitos but so you should take repellent with you, and there aren't so many!

We were a party of 10, six adults and 4 teenager; we all enjoyed the food, atmosphere and the nice touch of all people serving us. There was Brazilian music and a wonderful night in a privileged place. I strongly recommend.

We are fans of seafood and were not disappointed. The restaurant is located right on the beach front. It was a truly amazing experience to see the stars and hear the waves as... More

We went there with a group of 10 persons and had a wonderful night there. We were able to make a reservation upfront to sit on a large table on the beach right by the sea. They serve huge portions - even though the dishes are made for two persons, it was not possible for us two to finish the... More
