Seafood is the best

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

NAU Frutos do Mar is a restaurant specialized in sea food. It has been in the city for about 3-4 years now and since it's opening it has conquered many clients with a refined taste. When you try Nau's dishes, specially the ones with shrimp you'll forget about the world, because it is a very rich gastronomic experience. It is... More

Great place for seafood. Prices are about the same as in Rio. So i guess that is considered expensive for JP. But it is definitely worth it. Service was good, but food took quite a while to arrive. Atmosphere is really pleasant. Overall would definitely recommend.

Nau is probably the most well known restaurant in João Pessoa. All the locals recommended it. Prices seem costly until you find out that servings are huge and easily shared by three or four people. Shrimp was tasty and dessert yummy

Delicious mixed seafood platter everything was cooked to perfection especially the octopus. Beautiful decor. The other tables all seemed to order some sort of pasta or risotto would have loved to try that. Highly recommend.

Hi there, We went and had an amazing lunch. The homemade bread basket was to die for. We had a seafood salad with shrimp and then we had a seafood combination rice dish with lobster, calamari, mussels and shrimp. The service was impeccable. We love the design and feel of the restaurant. Once again the portions are large and should... More
