This place is awesome. Mosqueca is its specialty. I never miss having one every time I'm nearby. Don't forget asking about your Banana Moqueca for desert.

I´ve been to Curuca many, many times.There was a time you could choose anything from the menu being sure it would be great. Lately, things are not like they used to be. Unfortunately, food has been prepared in a very careless way and ingredients are...More

One of the best places to have a Muqueca - a typical fish stew dish cooked in a mud pan. Awarded the title of best Muqueca Capixaba of Brazil! The risotto with lobster and shrimp was also very good. A simple place but fun and...More
