We ate lunch here three of the eight days we were on the island. The food, service, and views are incredible. Highly recommend having a traditional coffee after lunch. If you go you won't be disappointed. Gabriella and Rafael were great waitresses.

Had lunch here and the food was spot on with some very good ingredients and flavour combinations. Spent a while after having a drink looking over the port

I spent six night in Noronha with my wife and tried most well known restaurants. Mergulhão is the best ever. We went twice there; once only for drinks and the sun-set (one of the best) and another one for a whole meal. Everything is excelent from the music selection, probably the best from all restaurants to the food, passing through... More

As close to high cuisine as it can be on Fernando de Noronha. Good views, exceptional sunsets. Expensive

Coolest place in the island with good food, excellent drinks and amazing view. Great time to visit is the sunset. Good service / high price.

We went for dinner because of the positive reviews in Tripadvisor. Wish we wouldn't have. The restaurant was stylish and had a lovely view to the ocean, but that's about it. Prices were very high compared to the quality. Appetizers were average, but the main courses (my husband ate a steak and I ate a fish course) were very disappointing.... More

One of the better options and at a nice location. The place has a nice atmosphere and there is a good choise in seafood. Try the "ceveti" as a starter. Also they have reasonable prices for wine and drinks.

I liked a lot this place! Great as a restaurant or as a bar! Gorgeous view! Great sunset spot when you have a drink. Be advised to make a reservation... Service could be faster, but it is not bad. As the place is opened, it could be very hot during lunch time.

Filet mignon on pineapple was divine. The octopus seafood mix was perfectly cooked. Sardines were good. A Brazilian shrimp ball was also good. A crispy fish entree was excellent. But two other Fish entrees we had were so so. The juices were one of the best in FDN. Location superb. Atop a hill overlooking the small wharf. And beach Beautiful.
