Excelent seafood restaurant

Good service, great dishes that serve two persons and good wine. Only too bad that the line on Sundays is long. Good for lunch and dinner

It was a great experience at Nau, the restaurant is beautiful, very quiet, with a huge door at entrance and it's similar to a big ship inside. The service is done by friend people. There is a big variety of sea food to order. Expensive, for special occasions...

One of the best restaurants in João Pessoa city, the place is very clean and cozy. The menu is outstanding, a lot of options of sea food and sauces, and if allergic you can find good options without seafood. one of the best options in high quality of seafood cousin.

Everything I have tried at Nau is really good but I will highlight two items: the appetizer (codfish with manioc hush puppy) and their regional dessert combination (assorted cheese and compotes). The meals are usually good for three people who eat lightly and wanna save room for dessert.

My husband and I were in João Pessoa to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We chose the Nau, top rated restaurant according to Trip Advisor for our special anniversary dinner. We were certainly not disappointed. The restaurant is large, not an intimate atmosphere, but service and personal care didn´t suffer. We started with the Salada Dunas: Camarão salteado, folhas mistas, tomate... More

This is the fourth or fifth visit to Nau and it never disappoints. The atmosphere is good, the service is also good and the food generous and well-cooked. We were twelve people and four dishes were more than sufficient for all of us. Those who ordered caipirinhas said they were well prepared and the fruit juices are always good. We... More
