A nice surprise – eat sited at the floor

Cacimba bistro was a really nice surprise. I went to dine with my wife and we asked for an outdoor table, as you can sit on the floor and eat at tables that resemble the Japanese restaurants. For some people can get a bit un-confortable but it is romantic and a pleasure. I had the octopuss risotto... read more

After 2 weeks of shrimp I needed some meat. Probably not the choice in this place. Steak should have been cooked medium, it seemed as though this didn't get relayed to the chef. It was also tougher than an old shoe. Some good reviews so maybe meat isn't there thing.

One of the most recommended restaurant in the island. Has a nice decoration and outside has a cool lounge where you can eat, drink comfortably. I ate Chicken with rice with curry sauce (PIC) and was very good. It's a expensive restaurant.

We went there to try the culinary from the chef and we went out disappointed. I just didn't give 1 only because of the lobster pastry, which by the way has a signature from a famous artist in Brazil and not from the chef. The caipirinha is water only... Cachaca or vodka were for sure not added to the drink.... More

It has an original interior and is at a great location. They serve very good salads and pastas and the portions are balanced. All the staff is very attentive. A diner here can be combined very well afterwards with a visit to the "cochoru-bar" for foro-music.

Located at the island main square, facing historical buildings, the restaurante has a very nice outside area. The inside seating area was almost empty, but the restaurant had a waiting line when we left... Food was very good as well. The service started slow, but improved during the dinner... Ok wine list.

I ate rice with octopus and it was delicious. The place is very well decorated. The only thing I didn't like : you have to wait and the prices are a little high.

Incredible restaurant, best we had in Noronha! I just wish we had tried it before the last day... Lobster pastel, grikked fish with fried banana (the waiter was so nice he said the dish was big enough to share - and they brought it alerady arranged in separate plates!) The Desert was Churros with doce de leite - heavenly!

The food was alright, but the service was mediocre at best. The waiters seemed to disappear and some of the food didn't come like we had asked...
