Must go for the view. Specially the sunset. Food is pretty good. Try the tuna tartar super fresh and very tasty.

If you want to relax from a perfect spot to watch the sunset this is one of the best options in the island. The prices are fare (considering that Fernando de Noronha is the most expensive place in Brazil). The beer is very cold and there are good appetizers (I didn't have dinner there). Just be careful: the restaurant does... More

Perched above the port and beach, incredible sunsets so get there well before it fills up, at least an hour ahead. The food is excellent, we only chose seafood and found one meal for two was enough for us. It is expensive as all quality restaurants are in Fernando but if you can afford to be there it is worth...

Great view , great staff, but very disappointing overpriced food. Lobster appetizer was with no flavor, meat was dry and 'shutney' was a 'wannabe' version. We had two risottos - it was clear that they were pre-cooked (took less than 5 min to get ready). Besides, Mine was served cold. Not what you expect. Neither myself or my wife finished... More

Stunning views of the harbor; best at sunset (get there by 530p). One of the best ceviches on the island.

Let's face it, Mergulhao is not a restaurant, it's a bar with a nice view of the port which happens to serve some assorted dishes. Go there in the late afternoon to have a few beers, have some finger food, and watch the sunset. Once the sun disappears in the horizon you can go to a proper restaurant for dinner.

We went to this restaurant for very late lunch, in order to appreciate a fantastic sunset! One of the most beautiful ones I've ever seen! The food was excellent! We had the bolinho de moqueca de camarão to start, then I had the white fish with pumpkin puré and my husband ate the crispy jumbo shrimps. The portions were very... More

The view is great and the food is delicious, but you pay the price for that. It's worth for a nice lunch when it's too hot and you can realx in the lounge garden with a beach view of Noronha's landmarks.

We ate lunch here three of the eight days we were on the island. The food, service, and views are incredible. Highly recommend having a traditional coffee after lunch. If you go you won't be disappointed. Gabriella and Rafael were great waitresses.
