“Brazilian Masterclass”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

After reading so many rave reviews about this place me and the wife decide to try it out....it was samba samba samba Brazilian football style from the 70's which Moqueca blew us away with fantastic food and Brazilian cuisine...we ordered the famous Moqueca with white fish and it was too die for...flaky fish falling onto your plate and melting in your mouth.
Washing it down with a Brazilian beer and the wife with a Brazilian cocktail....the whole meal was awesome....first time Brazilian food eaters and would definitely go back again when in town.
Our server was great and very attentive and explained how to enjoy our night and foods to eat...she was great.
A must place for all foodies...and did I forget the view of the marina during the day and night is awesome inside the restaurant.

“More Moqueca”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

This was my second trip there. It's by far more elegant than most of the places in Oxnard, and the food is very good. I recommend it.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

It was our friend's 24th wedding Anniversary so we wanted to take them somewhere of their choosing since we live 140 miles away from the area. They have raved about Moqueca before so off we went! What a fabulous meal! My husband and I shared the Moqueca de Peixe com Mariscos! It arrived in this huge pot, bubbling, steaming with wonderful aromas, delighting our senses. The tastes were divine. The fish was cooked perfectly, even the calamari was wonderfully tender. This was a dish designed for two to share but we could not finish, there is enough for another meal. Paired it with a bottle of the Santa Maria 120 Chardonnay from Chile which was quite nice. Can't wait to return to try something else on the menu :-)

“Very happy we tried it.”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

Took family for a nice dinner. We had the clay pots(fish stew meal for two), one fish moqueca with seafood, the other fish moqueca with shrimp. Both were delicious. Our daughter loved the Ravioli Campestre. Really enjoyed the Gurana( Brazilian soda). Service was good and the staff are very nice as well. This was our introduction to Brazilian food and it was delicious. We will definitely return. The kids stated it was their new favorite restaurant!

“Good Neighborhood Food on the Harbor”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Great place for some Brazillian Food next to the Mandalay Harbor. We went on Samba Night. They had 2 female Samba Dancers and a musician perform while we were finishing our meal. Get there around 6:30 P.M. and the Dancers start about 7 P.M. Nice alternative to the standard restaurant fare. Delicious cuisine. Give it a try!
