One word: the Best !

Simply excellent, here the cook must be someone with passion and knowledge, using the best available ingredients. Staff is very attentive, smiling and efficient. Top location any time of the day but special at sunset. Probably the best restaurant during our trip to Brazil.

Very nice restaurant in the port of the island. Nice modern space (open), great food, beautiful view to the port, sea and the landmark mountain of the island. We had lunch but I think this would be a perfect place to have a sunset drink and/or dinner as well.

Mergulhao is a conjunction of factors. Food, drink, environment, waiters and waitress... The best wine cellar in the Island with honest prices and good choices. Food are very well prepared with a lot of options. Appetizers are awesome try the linguica embriagada. Best hours to go are Sunset and Dinner

I just need to start this off by saying, the food here was so delicious we went here two nights in a row! It just happens to be one of the best places to see the sunset in FDN. It makes for a wonderful night. The first night we had ceviche and ahi tuna with mango and sesame and we... More

One of the best restaurants of the island; MUST try the tuna mango appetizer while waiting for the sunset. Also great seafood options Expect to pay around R$80/120 per person for dinner (standard price in the island)

Part of the reason to go here is to eat and drink and watch the sun set over FdN. The food was very good, but not the best we had. I had the moqueca which was very good. Go just before sunset, have some wine and order something from the sea and it will be very difficult not to have... More

Although the menu has an interesting combination, the service could be improved as the structure during the afternoon, there are a lot of sun just in front of the tables. Maybe at night things change.

and possibly one of the best I´ve been to in Brazil! I loved everything about it, from the views of the Port at sunset, to the small chill out area to have a quiet caipirnha before dinner, to the quality of service and the amazing food! Totally recommend to try the bobó de camarao or the fillet mignon, and for... More
