We shared the shrimp and mango salad which the substituted with pineapple as unfortunately they were out of mango followed by the lobster in a coconut yellow sauce (#021 on the menu). Both were superb. We then shared the chocolate cake (rather a brownie) with ice cream.... More

Being one of Fernando de Noronha's best and most popular restaurants, the price level is at the same high level (similar or even higher than São Paulo prices). The service was good but not great. My wife was satisfied with the lobster she shared with another person. I ordered the special seafood platter which I can only recommend if you... More

In my opinion, the best restaurant in the island. The food is fresh, and the service is good. The best tables are the ones at the balcony. I recommend the dishes with fish, always fresh. I went there 3 times and the service and food were consistently good. The prices are similar to other restaurants in the island (it means,... More

The fish dish with Shrimp was magnificent. We ate at about 7pm and the balcony area out the back was already full, but it's a lovely little place and highly deserves to be ranked No.1 on Fernando De Noronha
