Good fish dishes, but distracted service, simple decor, street level open air section. Within remedios village, at walking distance to several pousadas.

Our lodge is just one block from the restaurant and everyday we promise to have dinner or lunch there. The day before we left the island we had lunch there. We had the ceviche as starter, I had the Peixe Mestiço, but I changed from mashed pumpkin to mashed potatoes. We paid around US$120.00 / R$400,00 for 3 persons. The... More

Very nice food and service in a cozy place. They'll serve you carefully no matter if you order a complete meal or just an ice cream.

Been there with a family of 4, a couple plus two teenagers. We had a fish stew that was very good. Kids had seafood pasta that was also very good. A bit overpriced but in line with everything in the island.

This is the best place on the whole island. Excellent food, excellent service and reasonable price. They have a lunch special for two people that I believe costs R$114,00. It comes with rice, feijoada, Farofa, vinagrette and the meet (you can choose between roast beef or chicken). Excellent place!!

Typical and famous restaurant in the island, but very expensive and the food is not excellent like you would expect.

The food was really good and they were very helpful in preparing a different order for me because I'm a vegetarian. The menu of wine was really poor though because they didn't have any white wine when we came.

We stayed at Beco de Noronha which was a 2 min walk from this restaurant. I think we went at least once a day during our 5 days in Fernando. Even if this restaurant is more on the pricey side, and the service is sometimes a little slow, their food is absolutely worth it! Their caipirinhas are on point and... More
