We stayed here for 4 days and got first class treatment from arriving at the airport through to dropping us off at the airport for our return flight. After paying our daily tax and picking up the luggage we were met by a member of staff and driven direct to the hotel which took about 5 minutes. On arrival at... More

Great food and wine! I had read reviews on TripAdvisor and decided I wanted to try this restaurant and it did not disappoint. Make sure you get there between 7/7:30pm as you can't make reservations (we were turned away the first night we tried to eat here as it was already fully booked). I had the squid ink spaghetti with... More

Make sure to always ask for the fish to be "not very cooked", so it comes just perfect. If you do not say anything everyone in Brazil will overcook fish, seafood and all meats! Otherwise, the food and drinks were great!

Hidden amongst the jungle, at the foot of the rock and a short walk to the beach you will find the most sweet and beautiful beach hut-style rooms. I love this hotel and it will always have the fondest memories.

We stayed at Teju Açú but also ate in the restaurant many times. The moqueca is amazing and we really enjoyed all the dishes we tried including the interesting breakfast options. The hotel is also very nice with large spacious and comfortable rooms. As with most Noronha restaurants and accommodation, prices are high in comparison to other places in Brazil.

The food is delicious and beautifully presented - we had grilled wild prawns with pineapple on delicate funghi risotto, and a wonderful prawn risotto with truffle oil. The caipirinhas are not to be missed!

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
