Faustino was a very nice place to go before he moves to Meirelles beach. The price at Meirelles beach skyrocked with no justification. Now he opened a new place nearby the Mucuripe fish market.

Faustino always has been one of my favourite restaurants in Fortaleza, with especially the lamb dishes being excellent next to very good seafood dishes.

Faustino has reopened his old restaurant, in a nicer place (nicer neighborhood and the restaurant itself), and keeps tring to create with local ingredients. Some dishes come out excellent, others not so much. For starters we had "bolinhos de macacheira" (cassava rolls) filled with "carne de sol" (corned beef - my favourite) and "queijo coalho" (local cheese). We also had... More
