“Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

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.

“good food, but not enough!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

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 and we were not fully satisfied...

“Excellent food with a view...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

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 moqueca here and it was pretty good, as well and the dessert which was divine (mille feuille made out of tapioca with bananas and dulce de leite on top). Yummy!!

We went for lunch, but I hear at night you get more of a romantic atmosphere. A must eat in Noronha...

“Don't miss this one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

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 they say it's really amazing. Cheers.

“THE place to eat in Fernando de Noronha”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

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 to be missed!
