Went there on a Monday and a Party during what seemed to be a semi private party. They charged us a fixed price for food (delicious small plates) and the beverage we had to purchase separately. The place has very nice views from the Harbor and even though we liked our night there I believe that drinks at sunset is... More

This is one of the nicest restaurants in the island, and their view is certainly the best! The location couldn't be better, the best is go there for late lunch, so you can enjoy the sunset. The food is good, but what worths in this place is the environment and the views that you can get.

I have been in Mergulhão 3 times in a week that I spent in Noronha. Starters and main dishes were very tasty (the best starters: passion fruit ceviche, taquinhos de tapioca and spicy shrimp). The atmosphere is refined but relaxed at the same time. Wonderful views of the beach of Porto and Pico hill. Very attentive service. Price is high... More

We were here as part of a huge group dinner, so we ordered almost all of the appetizers for sharing. Above all else, we re-ordered the spicy shrimp repeatedly. Can't get enough! The shrimp are huge and tasty and spicy! The staff is extremely friendly and the view of the port was serene. The tuna carpaccio was yummy too, but... More

Overall a great place on an island that had distinctively average eateries. Stands head and shoulders above the rest. The appetisers are big enough to share. Try the prawn, pumpkin and cheese ...simply amazing.

The place itself is very nice. The food is good and the view is magnificant. The big downside is the arrogant personnel which is working there. Especially if your Portugese is not that well tend to make fun of you behind your back which we find very inappropriate for a place like that. The staff is also walking around through... More

For having a drink when appreciating a great view of Noronha, there's no better place. Food and service are also very good, specially when compared to other options on the island, but the view is definitely the high point.

Best tuna carpaccio on a mango bed ever! Very attentive and kind service, but only one waitress talking English.

We went to have lunch at Mergulhao almost every day during our visit to the island. It is the only restaurant with sea view and the food is great. I can recommend the "tartar de atun".

Very good food, good service and the best location for the day. On the other hand, part of the tables were out with no roof and regarding the rains, this is a problem. Also, I think the lay out of the restaurant is average (or below).
