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).

I was recommended Mergulhao by a local in Fernando de Noronha. We were really excited about our dinner in Mergulhao, however, in my case i was disappointed. Entrees were delicious (we wad Cebiche and Tartar de Atum), however my main dish was definitely not worth how much i paid. I ordered the Polvo com Cajun, and it was very hard... More

Order the Fried Cheese drizzled with honey and lime zest - AMAZING!! Both shrimp dishes were very tasty and the fish was fresh and cooked well.

The menu is extensive, but the food quality leaves a little to be desired! The trick is to go in the late afternoon for a drink and snack. In order to lose your breath from the Port de Noronha, relaxed atmosphere, with lounges, sofas and good music.

Mergulhao has an unbeatable location. Perched atop a hill near the port, you get wonderful views of the bay and the wonderful dolphins that come through almost every morning. Sunset views from here are also stunning. Great place to socialise. The food is nice too.

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.
