But the place near the water is very romantic. The food of course is very very good, although a bit different, it is melange between asian and brazilian food.

We were going there because of the TripAdvisor top recommendation. Nice ambience especially when it's getting dark, service ok and food was pretty good. If you have been living or travelled in Thailand you gonna be a bit disappointed cause you will miss the real Thai taste. Nevertheless the Fushion food is good!

Last time I visited was in December, the weather was great at night, which made it possible for us to sit in a table by the sea, on the sand, with the sound of the ocean.. That's certainly the best way to have dinner! The food was excellent, as usual. My... More

3 years in a row and we still find it to be the best restaurant in Ilhabela. A 'western Thai' restaurant that pays attention to settings and details. Very nice atmosphere, good service, great view (try to get a table in the sand) and food is very good It's a nice break from the typical 'comfort food' restaurants you find... More

After a one hour wait with two caipiroskas and an excellent ceviche we finally had a table. The service was fast and the Asian fusion dishes delicious. Don't forget to order Coconut water!

This is among the nicest restaurants in Ilhabela (if not the best). It has a Thai influence with a twist; the location is very relaxed and right in front of the beach for a relaxing evening. Highly recommend it to anyone visiting the island. Strongly recommend you call in advance and make reservations in order to get a table close... More
