Restaurante Ilha Sul

Top choice brazilian in Ilhabela

On the island's south end, this award-winning seafooder is most famous for its top-end shrimp dishes, but you can't go wrong with anything you encounter on its pleasant, bamboo-strewn patio.

Excellent choices include polvo à Provençal (octopus with olive oil and parsley) and lula à Baiana (a type of calamari stew), but no matter what, don't miss their twice-cooked potatoes with fried garlic – a side-dish sensation!
