Top choice thai in Ilhabela

Dine on the sands overlooking romantic, yacht-filled seas at Ilhabela's best gourmet restaurant, the domain of darling local chef Renata Vanzetto and her tropical take on Brazilianized Thai. Her best acts pilfer from both cuisines, such as a seared tuna with a goat cheese and apricot sauce over cashew jasmine rice; or sautéed shrimp with grilled pumpkin, catupiry cheese and crunchy mandioquinha (starchy taproot) sticks.
