Restaurant Flutuante: Floating Restaurant in Paradise
This unique restaurant is floating off the beach. Unless you want to get wet and swim out there, simply flag them down and a small boat (yellow one in the photo) will come via a cable to the beach to pick you up and drop you off.
The food is alright and the drinks are cold, but you are definately visiting for the ambiance and charm. They do not accept credit cards and you must remember to leave in time to either walk back to town (~2hrs) before the sun goes down or catch the last boat.
Favorite Dish: The sandwiches and small fare are the normal fare, much better for the value.

Beirgarten Restaurant: Quality food and economic per-kilo price
The restaurant at the Beirgarten Hostel serves breakfasts for its guests, but opens up to all visitors for a self-service buffet. My friend who had been to Ilha Grande three separate times for over a month took us here as his favorite restaurant, particularly noting that it fits a budget traveler too. There are a couple of tables under the cover of the roof, as a few on the open patio, but all are open-air. It is important to dress to the weather, including inspect/bug repellent as needed.
Favorite Dish: All the food is good. It is charged at a per-kilo rate which is among the best deals on the island.
They have various sea foods and fish (a main dish on the island), meats, pasta, vegetarian options, etc. They also have a full service bar.

Toca do Guaiamum
If you want a place where you can eat lots of food for a good price, Toca do Guaiamun is the place locals usually go to eat....it´s simple, away from the beach, but when you are hungry and willing to fill your stomach it´s a good restaurant.
They usually have a diverse menu, but the dish the majority of people ask is for the prepared dish, what we call "prato feito"....it´s a big plate with rice, black beans and salad, and you can choose either chicken, fish or meat....the food is good, for a good price...
They also have a camping site on the back...

Also you can eat "Feijoada com farofa" tipical dish from Brasil.......
Credit cards are accepted.
Favorite Dish: Everything!
Canoas: Traditional Brazilian fare
Canoas is a beautiful little restaurant at the end of the strip of simialr locations parallel to the beach at Abraao. It is a little yellow building with stars (estrelas) lit and hanging in the doorway and a bar made of an old wooden canoe- hence the name Canoa (canoe in portugese).
Favorite Dish: I did not have it but according to the nice couple that we met from South Africa at dinner, the traditional dish of fish with banana was terrific.
Recreio da Praia: The best retaurant on the Island!
Recreio da Praia was one of the best dining experiences that I had in Brazil. The view of the sunset on the water was fantastic and the food was amazing. I am not a seafood lover, but I hear that it was the best on the island. The service at this restaurant was great, we asked for some bread before we realized that they do not serve it and before we knew it, someone was running out to the store to buy it for us!
A RESTAURANT IN ABRAAO BEACH
This is one of the restaurants I mentioned in Abraao beach,simple,in front of the beach,and crabs,fish,shrimps..ice cream (forgot to tell my favourite Ilha Grande ice cream taste is Passiflora fruit,think abroad it's better known as Passion fruit,wow,so refreshing!!)
GASTRONOMY IN ILHA GRANDE
Ilha Grande has many options of menus,of course,the main is seafood,but I have to give a special recomendation about its ice cream,what I think is the best in the state!!
The bread here is also delicious,don't know why it always taste fresher than in Rio!
During the summer,be patient because the service can be very slow,the waitress becomes a real treasure,every new order is a new impossible mission,try to make up your mind at the first time he comes!!
Favorite Dish: Hmmm,the fish soups!!
Crab soup,and the tipical natives meal,FISH AND BANANAS!
Yep,fish with fried bananas,it's delicious!!
For those with the same taste in food as mine,the restaurants in ABRAAO beach are great!
Canoas: Traditional Brazilian
