There is no doubt this is one of the best restaurant in whole region. This isn't much a casual ambient, it's a little bit more formal but it isn't a barrier... the maître will treat you very good, but if you matter to dress according to locals, a shirt and pair of paints and a shoes should be enough This...

Nau must be one of the best restaurants in João Pessoa. Having visited it several times I am always impressed by the way in which the quality of the food and the standard of service remains at the same high level.

We were impressed with the room atmosphere and the service. The staff was attencious and efficient. We ordered the Frutos do Mar na Chapa and it was really well cooked - the portion was enough for three persons. We'll definitely come back.

It's my second favorite place to eat in João Pessoa. My husband and I were there three times in a week. The decor is beautiful, excellent menu, and even when the restaurant is full - what happens often - it's not noisy. The service is great and the price is quite fair.

Nau Frutos do Mar is not the #1 restaurant in João Pessoa without a reason. You might need to que to get in, however, you can enjoy a drink at the same time and admire de amazing interior. We ordered the most popular fish dish with shrimps and it was simply excellent!

If you like to eat very well it´s the place. NAU has a large plates to eat two or more person and the prices is average. The variety is huge and people are friendly. You need to taste local juices as caja, seriguela, ananas and others. I recomend.
