“Best Meat in Ilha Grande”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

We did get the tip for our Pousada Tropicana and when arriving you doubt, the way it looks... but order that perfect meat (Mignon Poivre with Rosti) and you don´t care but just enjoy.. A really big perfect steak prepared in the best way, still red inside and good outside with a perfect pepper sauce...
While sitting there a lot of people turned back, but just give it a try, it is worth it.
And tip for the owner, maybe put some candles on the table and make more clear that the prices are for 2 people, you will get so much more people, you deserve it. But next time we are here we return for sure!

“Hidden but worth it”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

Hidden at the end of an alley, it is not the tourist trap that you find beach front. Great (huge) portions, really good food, nice staff. We returned two nights in a row, finding it the best deal in town (even if it is not the cheapest).

“Unforgettable”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

One of the best gorgonzola steaks ever! Even though it is an island and we should go for the fish, Mario's steak is unbelievable! Order some wine and indulge yourself! The only thing i am not crazy about are the toasts and the butter they serve as starters, but who cares? It is way better to be really hungry when the main dish is so good! Bon apetit!
