The Moqueca is a wonderful restaurant in the harbor area. The fish stew is fabulous which brings us back whenever we are in town. Great flavors, authentic cuisine, good service and great food. Can’t wait for our next visit. Very quiet at the lunch hour...More

Went to lunch and ordered a different item than usual, and i was pleasantly surprised! Had the Stroganoff with rice and chicken it was delish! We'll keep coming back to this fabulous lunch spot.

Had a nice meal and good service, but wasn't the good or different taste that I had from similar cuisine especially for the price.

You go upstairs to a restaurant overlooking the wharf. The food was exceptional. It is served in clay pots. The sea food is in a light tomato sauce that is lightly seasoned and eaten with rice. Dessert was scrumptious. Just a great place to go...More

This place is the BOmB! Nothing like a well-portioned Margarita on the rocks and scallops for the appetizer. Then moving on to steak and lobster with the decadent sauce and jasmine rice to top it off! I want to go again! Pretty please with sugar...More

Too much food! Clay pot style - I love Brazilian food. Quiet. I think the upstairs location is affecting their traffic? Should be busier. Of course it was a Thursday. Anyway, try it!

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.
