Teju Açu is not easy to find. Don't let the rough road approaching the restaurant turn you off. It's worth find it and making it all the way. The restaurant has that nice island look, the service is by far the friendliest and most informed, and the food is unique for the fresh ingredients, local flavors and superb presentation. Bravo...

To my taste, this was the very best restaurant in the island. We shared an excellent steak tartar to start, then had the shrimp and white fish Moqueca for two. The desert was Romeu & Julieta petit gateau: to die for!

I was staying at the hotel where the restaurant is located and I was very well impressed and so, I decided to review it separately. Surprisingly, the menu also includes a lot of meat dishes... But, I tried only their fish, seafood and salad. All were excellent! Price was ok, assuming the quality. They could invest on a more diversified... More

The place was absolutely beautiful! The food was great, and the menu had some very interesting options. The only problem is that some of the food we wanted was unavailable

My wife and I went twice on a 3 day trip. Wonderful food and service. The chef really loves to see people happy and peaks out to see if you like the food. Cerviche was excellent as well.

The restaurant is very good. Of course, since you are on a rather remote island all the choices may not always be available (no lamb the week we were there for example) but what is available is prepared well, and the chef & staff take a great deal of pride in presentation, so everything looks great too. My partner was... More

The place is very nice. Good view from "Pico" and the restaurant is made of wood, very clean and well designed. There are kids menu. Food is detailed, very good taste and well prepared. Some local ingredients from Brazilian NE and local. Local waiters do their best. I've tried some "risoto" that was outstanding. Recommend for families or couples.

We made it to all of the recommended restaurants in FdN and this was one of, if not the, best. I think it may depend on what you order, but the ceviche is the best I've ever had and the island grilled fish was phenomena as was the petit gateau. The island is so remote and has so little water... More

I was really looking forward to eating here based on all of the great reviews but we were very disappointed...the food was just average. We shared a burger and a salad...the salad was fine..nothing special but the burger was one of the worst burgers I've ever eaten. There is a little side of the road burger stand next to Santander...

I think Teju-açu and Tribojou are the best restaurants of the island. You pay as much as in other places and get much more sophisticated food and environment.

Description
With Chef Maurice Jasnievicz having improved his techniques at the renowned restaurant Astrid & Gaston in Lima - Peru returns as Executive Chef of the Eco Pousada Teju-Acu introducing the molecular gastronomy within the island giving focus to the Teju-Açu style in a creative process through the cultivation of special sprouts and edible flowers as well as having the smoking process applied to our dishes as well as the fish caught by clients and guests. Teju-Acu and The Chef Mauricio are in favor of the use of grown organic products from our own vegetable garden where the customer interacts and have their questions answred as well as to contemplate each item that carefully goes in every dish as a culinary work of art only found within the exclusiveness of the Eco Pousada Teju-Açu.
