The restaurant overlooks the Channel Islands harbor providing a beautiful, romantic view. The food was excellent, very tasty with unusual flavors. Large quantities with excellent service in a relaxed atmosphere made the dinner special.

Fresh and flavorful with an unique twist as everything is served with Brazilian flare. The moqueca bowls are delicious. Service is attentive without feeling like you're being rushed out the door. Great place to watch the Christmas boat parade in the Channel Islands marina.

We really like the idea of trying something new, and this was a great find at a reasonable price. You can sit outside on the covered patio and have a fantastic view of the harbor. Service was quick, informative, friendly and attentive. I had the...More

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.
