We were looking for a place in Oxnard for my wife's birthday party, so we decided to sample their menu a week before. We ordered the Moqueca de Peixe which was cod fish with a sauce cooked in a clay pot with lime and olive oil, garlic, tomatoes, cilantro, urucum essence and coconut milk. The other order was beef stroganoff... More

They have brazilian food but it is not rodizio style. You can find good latino flavors, good drinks, etc Prices are higher than normal but dishes sizes are ok to share I would recommend for couples or grown ups, not too much kid friendly.

Love the Moqueca. I am often chilled after a day out on the water and this Brazillian stew warms me up.

Three people out for a birthday dinner - $130, including tip. Since it was our first visit, we tried 2 appetizers and several sides. Would not get the yucca fries again, but everything else was delicious. The cheese ravioli was made with very sharp cheese. In our opinion, it was a bit too sharp for an entree, but would've been...

We happened across this place last spring and it was delightful then. So knowing we would be somewhat in the area again, we drove an hour to enjoy another dinner here last night. It was even better! So flavorful. So nourishing! Love, love, love! Robert even remembered us from a previous visit. She is a rockstar!!!

We stopped for lunch on Friday February 24. We had no idea what to expect. We ordered from the lunch menu. I had the Moquequinha described as your choice of fish, shrimp, or lobster cooked in a clay pot w/onions, tomatoes, olive oil, cilantro, urucum essence & coconut milk. Served with white rice. There was also a pepper sauce. My... More

We were visiting our old friends in Oxnard. They wanted to take us to one of their favorite dinner spots. My wife and I had never had Brazilian food before. This was a wonderful experience!! Service was friendly and professional. The owner (from Brazil) came by to check on us and chat a couple of times. Be sure to include... More
