Fernando de Noronha is not chela but this establishment has good food at fair prices. The Moquecas are great and in general everything is delicious. The service is friendly and caipirinhas are well made

The menu is very varied with something suitable for everyone. We specially recommend a chicken with curry, lemon rice and coconut vegetables. The waiters are very nice and even invited us to the dessert!! The only problem, it is a busy place so be patient!

In Fernando de Noronha you can have good experiences in restaurants, but the best one is Xica da Silva. They have a nice place, and wonderful kind of plates, specially a pumpkin puree with fish.

Staff was rude and slow. They got confused with my order and did not even apologise after almost half an hour wait. In addition, the quality of the food was not great at all. I would not recommend it
