The food was really good! The ceviche and the carpacio was excelent! The shark cake balls were to die for. The fish well done and the risotto very good!

Xica da Silva is an elegant and popular restaurant with the same high price level as the other best restaurants in Fernando de Noronha. We ordered their signature fish plate, which was a very good choice, although I found the fish a bit too salty and overlooked.

Food, location and service was great. Pricy as other places in Fernando de Noronha, but it worth. Must go!

Nothing special. Stays open until a bit later than others - things in Noronha closes early. Food is average. Nothing special.

The extensive menu made it difficult to choose. The food was wonderful, the beer cold, and the service terrific

Good food! Nice setting in Villa dos Remedios. Kind service. You have to go early because in the evenings is always full.

Food was largely unmemorable, though as elsewhere on the island portions are huge. The real draw here were the reasonably priced caipirinhas.

whilst all the restaurants on this island are very expensive, i felt this place offered the best value for money. we came here 3 times during our 5 day stay on the island and enjoyed it every time. the section is great and everything we tried was notable. the food was tasty and well prepared. the ambiance is nice also.

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

Thank Cbertoni
