This is somewhat far from city centre, but worth visiting. Pricy as any Brazilian venue during high season. We had the Murilo Style Shrimp (with pumping purè and cream cheese), and it tasted really good. Service is a bit slow.

We went there after returning from the Bonete Beach. It was such a long hike and we needed to have a good dinner. We were actually surprised that the restaurant has that amazing view. All the servers were really nice. Calamari with salsa, or Lula ao Vinagrete, was a great call. We loved the restaurant.

I went there for a meal but prices were simply an offense. Everybody knows seafood is expensive - I was born in an island like Ilhabela, so I know what I am talking about - but almost 300 hundred reais for shrimps is for fools. They charged me 5 reais for 50ml of coffee! The view must be very enjoyable... More

We went to this place based on Trip Advisor recommendations as well as an American we ran into on the island. The food was actually pretty good, but the staff seemed to be very annoyed to have to server a table of 6 people. Oh, and they skimmed my credit card and immediately used it online. Luckily my credit card... More

It was a nice restaurant to visit! Large food portions ! It's a little joke about the restaurant name and the NY metropolitan city!

This place is good for groups. It has a nice atmosphere and great food for a fair price. Badejo Recheado surely is a must try, it is even better to eat it while watching the sunset. If you're around you must check.

We had a good experience at the restaurant, the food was ok, the view was very nice. Service was ok, until the moment we had the opportunity to listen to some stories from Ilhabela by the place's owner, Tuca, a great story teller.

After a dredful car travel, we finnaly reached the restaurant. We were starving, and the place was almost empty. The owner himself was waitering and took our orders. Me and a friend split a fish plate and it was DIVINE. So cheap and so amazing. When you are in Ilhabela you HAVE to come here, it's food to die for.
