Horrible experience. Horrible service. Rude waiter. When we complained they said, "come back tommorrow maybe it will be better."

So many other great places to eat in Ilha Grande, don't waste your time here

I agree with my previous reviewers. It looks very nice from outside and like good atmosphere. Be aware though that there is no warm kitchen before 19:30.
Some of the waitresses were extremely unfriendly and not attentive at all. We waited for about an hour for the kebab (which was good). We even tried a second time to go there, but it wasn't any better - actually it was worse. My friend got her food while I had to wait 25min more. Thus, we didn't dine together.

Not good value for money. I really wouldn't go if I were you.

From the outside this looks like quite a nice, chilled restaurant but it is not. We waited for 3 hours for 2 kebabs to be cooked, asking every 15 minutes or so after the first hour and a half. We know life on Ilha Grande is chilled and that's why we loved it but this was something else. We were told, yeah 2 minutes no problem. Our 2 dining companions both had finished their dinner and had gone to bed, and in the end we were so fed up we just left.

I have no problem with you forgetting an order, it happens, no worries but there is no need to constantly lie about it for 3 hours and then be pretty rude when we have to keep asking you where our food is.

At 11pm after we left, we walked down the road to a cafe and within 5 minutes had 2 platefuls of delicious food in front of us.

There is no excuse for this kind of service. Awful.

One of the worst experiences we have ever had. The two kebab sandwiches we had ordered took no less than one hour and a half (!) to arrive, and if we hadn't reminded the waiter a couple of times of our pending order, we would probably still be sitting there waiting for our food.

Sadly enough, the delay does not appear to have been caused by a thoroughful preparing of the dishes. The content of our plates may be defined in many terms, but kebab is certainly not one of them. An obscure mix of cheap vegetables and partially raw chicken of the lowest quality wrapped in a dry, thin lawyer of pastry, cooked five minutes in a microwave, would be a rather generous description of our meal.

Before leaving, we told the waiter politely that due to the delay, we did not wish to pay the requested 10% fee for the service. Instead of an apology or even an explanation, all we got from the guy was a shrug, a sheepish smile and a cloud of tobacco smoke in our faces.

Whatever you do, don't go here!
