Great views, OK food

This place is convenient to Cachorro beach. You'll sit outside. It sometimes has live music. The food is typical beach fare, with fried fish, french fries, and salad greens.

The one positive about this place is the view especially at sunset. However, even if you are sitting at a table, people not eating are allowed to wander in and stand in front of you blocking the view. Surely if people just want a drink they should be asked to remain by the bar. Whilst we were there a musician... More

terrible. It is really disappointing that this place has such a great view because they will always have customers walking in and won't suffer from their horrible customer service. My husband and I went in early one night and ordered a beer and an appetizer. While no one was at the restaurant it was fine, but when more people started... More

Visited this restaurant for lunch and dinner. Lunch was stunning as this is situated right on the Cachorro Beach ... Beautiful sceneries and great moqueca. At night, a live band plays to the tunes of Forro.. probably amongst the top night spots on the island.

The beach is beautiful. And Bar do Cachorro makes this experience even better as they provide chair and parasol on the sand, without being too intrusive. Food is good, fair prices for the island (food in general is quite expensive on FdN), nice fresh drinks and friendly staff. A good place to stay!

It's a bar with live misic, twice a week, if I'm not mistaken. The band was only average, but there are not many options in the small and beautiful Fernando de Noronha.

We had launch there while exploring the island...just before going to "meio" and "conceicao" beach. It was ok...but for dinner..you should get to better places like bejupira, varanda or mergulhao.

We really enjoyed Bar do Cachorro for a sundowner. Besides the amazing view, the bar is a great place to get a late afternoon snack. The "bolinho de arroz" with cheese was especially tasty and cheap for Noronha standards.

Nice food, beautiful view. And, the devotion to dogs really gets me. :) The beach right below is not a good beach (at least in Feb) but it is beautiful.

Surprisingly great food for a "bar" type restaurant. The views over Praia de Cachorro are reason alone to come hear and just have some drinks -- especially at sunset.
