Nested in a hidden beach is this relaxed restaurant. It's more than a Brazilian beach bar and less than a high class Sao Paulo stylish restaurant. The beach is magnificent whilst the bar is just relaxed. The food is good but a bit pricey. The music is very nice. I loved it here.

In my opinion, it is the most beautiful beach on Ilha and the owners have created the perfect ambience. The food is also the best you can find in any beach bar on Ilha without exception...the...

My favourite destination in São Paulo state is the northern coast and there we have the second largest oceanic island called Ilhabela, a nice city full of infrastructure nature and good moments. It is not cheap but any good traveller deserves a good experience, does it not? This time in the island I spent a day at my favourite beach... More

The food is very good - pretty varied menu with a lot of fish, seafood, pasta, salad and great finger food too - and amazing drinks. They have a very comfortable structure on the beach and over the deck too. The service is also great and the music is outstanding:some lounge & bossanova, just perfect for a beach day. The... More

Ridiculous. My partner had the Mignon with rice and chips. Steak was over cooked, plain rice and cold chips.. 52 reais?? Every other... More

Probably the best beach bar in Ilhabela...the beach itself (Julião) is beautiful (one of the most beautiful in the south shore), the place has a great infrastructure for a beach bar/restaurant so you can both go there to enjoy the beach (have some beer, drinks and appetizres) or have lunch (they have good options of meals). Everything I ate there... More

A small, charming and welcoming beach bar! Half of the tables on the sand, the others inside. Good variety of drinks and food, acceptable price for the spot, worth the stay.
