You are looking for simply the best Filet Mignon for example with Gorgonzola...then you have to try out this Restaurant! Up in front you will get fresh homemade italian Bread with Caponata, which is delicious as well and on the house. Thank you we had a very good Dinner!

Located down a side street this restaurant was a bit difficult to find. But persevere as your taste buds will be rewarded. Why this isn't the busiest place in Jeri is beyond me. The owner is a fabulously flamboyant host and a damn fine chef. We ate here 3 nights during our holiday and would have enjoyed more meals there... More

Girassol is great. The food is very good, there a lot of space so if you have kids it is ideal and safe, and Manu, the owner, is an excellent host and he can tell you everything about Jericoacoara you need to know in three languages! Highly recommended.

Ate here once during our trip to Jeri, the food was good (I had the sea food risotto) the risotto could have been more soupy but the seafood was very good. Service was OK

I remembered the Girassol as one of my prefered restaurant in Jeri, a little bit more expensive than the other but it was so tasty: the best Bruscettas with so good home made bread, an excellent octopus salad and very good italian pasta. I went there this time and I didn t recognize neither the owner nor the cook. The... More

New owner has a great feel for people, has spent some time in Bologna Italy which boosts quality of dishes served. Charming atmosphere. We loved it.

Not to recommend. I had read all the very positive comments about this restaurant so I went there with my wife the other night but we didn't eat as well as we thought we would. The service was not very professional, the food didn't have anything special and the prices were high for what it was! However the atmosphere is... More

This restaurant is a must in Jeri. The food, service and atmosphere is great. Manu makes the best Caipirinas in South America so be sure to try one.

It`s a good option to change from seafood or barbecue everyday. The place is nice, but not many tables available (around 8 tables). The entrance is nice, bruschettas with eggplant and onions. The main corses are nice, as both of us asked for pasta, and it was good and the sauces delicious. The desserts were nice, we ate chocolate cake... More
