I had just arrived in Foz do Iguazo, and wanted a quick, light meal before an early rise the next day. I was shown the restaurant across the road from my hotel, and was lucky that it turned out to be a very pleasant and interesting place to eat. The walls are mostly red, and covered with paintings and hangings. I had not heard of the Moqueca before, but it looked so interesting on the menu that I declined the buffet that most other diners (all Brazilians) were choosing, and opted for the shark with shrimp Moqueca, cooked with coconut milk and ' a special seasoning in dende oil', which is made from the kernel from the palm fruit and is red orange in colour with a nutty flavour. The Moqueca arrived in the terracotta dish it was cooked in, and was probably the most interesting fish stew I have ever eaten. Washed down with a large 'Original' beer, the bill came to 112 Real, with 10% service. A lucky find for me, and an restaurant I would recommend seeking out for others.

We were actually searching for a different seafood restaurant, which we discovered was closed for renovation when we asked a local who recommended this one. It turned out to be a great discovery. The salmon moqueca was delicious and enough for three people. Music was supplied by a guy playing a guitar and service was prompt and friendly plus a menu in English is available . The moqueca and drinks for two came to around £30 for the two of us. Great value for money.

Brazilians eat a lot of meat so this fish restaurant is a great break. They specialize in moquecas which is fish stew from the Bahia region. It is based on a coconut broth with veggies and fish, served with rice on the side. We took the one with a local fish and shrimp: DELICIOUS. Brazilians don't use a lot of spice so we asked for a bit of hot sauce to give it an extra kick.

It was the first time I experienced Bahaian cuisine and frankly did not liked it at all. It is basically a cheap products based cooking and that's the reasoning for scoring the restaurant that way. Tried moqueca, which even though sea food based was a thick soupy dish with rather hard to chew mussels and some squids that was the only eatable in the dish. As side dish you get a floury puree. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated with limited and unpleasant open air seating.
