Nice place to visit and eat, btw amazing Brazilian local food! I've tried the moqueca for 2, which perfectly serves 3 + a amazing dessert (I can't recall the name), but it refers to... More

Casa do João offers fantastic food with a large range of local cuisine options. It is also one of the only places in Bonito where you can just indulge in salad and soup if you please. The decor is superb, the music well selected and the service is top notch!

We had the fried Pacu which is big enough for 2 or 3. The fish along with the side dishes were amazing! We also had the Pacu ribs and ordered the kid's meal for them! Both very taste! The service was very good and the waitress very kind! Worth the visit!

We were expecting a lot because of the other online reviews and we were still surprised here. The food is great, very unique dishes and the service is really good. We had a good time here. The place decoration is also unique and features a museum and souvenir shop, it's really different from a usual restaurant and really worthwhile.

We had dinner here based on a recommendation from our tour booking agency and because it had good TA reviews. While they don't speak English, they do have an English menu. You can just connect to their wifi and use a translator for assistance in communicating. Though their service was good, I wouldn't say the food was anything special and... More
