The food is consistently good. The bread came out warm. Everyone in our party was happy with their food and the drinks are a good pour.

Stop by and eat where the locals eat. All the food is freshly prepared using local seafood, meats and vegetables whenever they're available. See Mooca at the bar for a great cocktail, sit and relax, you can't go wrong.

I have never had a bad meal or even a bad experience here. The bar staff is phenomenal while you wait for a table or just stay at the bar! Parking can be a little tough at busy times. But well worth the effort.

Other responders indicate GF availability, open Monday and no reservations. I can only add, if you have to wait, it is worth it and dining at the bar is a great option.
