We came to Oxnard to visit my sister and brother in law, they took us here for dinner. Great atmosphere, delicious food, right in the harbor. If you're in the area, Moqueca Brazilian Cuisine is a must try!

For a different taste of Brazil this is a great experience. A couple can share a dish and appetizer and you can still go home with leftovers. The Tortinha De Palmito appetizer was a meal in itself! We had the Fish Moqueca and the fish...More

Visited while on a business trip. The food and service were excellent. The fried plantains and the steak were really tasty. The moqueca was also really good. Big enough to share.

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.
