Excellent food at reasonable prices

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 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.

After changing many times its original restaurant, now Faustino is in anise spot. Where he can spread wings of his creativity to make his unique combinations of ingredients and spices. Try the Manjericao Ice Cream at the end...
