This is for me the best restaurant in Noronha! Here you can have an excellent food and drink while you enjoy an amazing view. The service is very good and the staff are kind. The atmosphere is charming and relaxed, but without losing quality. I really recommend.

The food are quite good, although in the upper side for price, but the visit is a must, since it is located just above the "porto" beach, with an amazing view. I do recommend the tables outside in the restaurant patio. And don´t go in a hurry, plan to expend a longish lunch.

a great setting on the cliff with a sea view and comfy cushions and excellent caiparinhas. Like all restaurants on the island, the prices are high, but the meals are a good size and well prepared. Be sure to ask for your fish and beef to be cooked rare-otherwise it will be over cooked.

Wonderful view, excellent food, but the prices are like Paris. The service is just ok, for this price we expected a five star attention from the waiters.

The food was great, and the view unbelievable, but we left the place hungry... It is terribly expensive, and when you order fish, there is only fish in your plate. No rice, no potatoes (only very thin slices to decorate...). Of course I could have ordered more food, but my budget is not infinite! I spent a lot of money... More

This was the second restaurant we ate in on our trip and the food was excellent. The servers are courteous and the view is spectacular... They have outside seating as well and have cushions and low tables for those who want to seat on the floor. Indoor there are tables and these also have a nice view. We had a... More

Surprisingly, the breathtaking island of Fernando de Noronha does not have many reswtaurants with a view. Mergulhao, overlooking the port and its bay, is one of the few, and deserves your visit, specially for drinks and snacks after the beach. Great atmosphere, good food and service. Prices follow FN levels. I've been there twice, but not at sunset hours, when... More

This is the best restaurant on the island, besides having an amazing view over the harbor ad at the sunset with the volcaic peak. Service is very friendly and you can spend all day here, go down to the beach for snorkeling with turtles etc., coming back for a beer and a shower, going out again etc. A place not... More

Excelent brazilian food whatching a amazing Sunset. Go for a late lunch or a early dinner. Best place to see the sunset on the island. Few people goes there to have a drink, but you should try the food.

The restaurant looks very nice and the food is very good quality, the prices are very expensive though. It is just above the port, the view is nice and you can sit and relax, the service was slow the day I was there, maybe it is not the usual because they apologized.
