We went to TriboJu our last evening on Fernando de Noronha. I’ll preface this by saying we had no bad meals during our stay, but this was a pretty high point. Quiet and beautiful dining room; we opted for outdoor seating with the beautiful foliage and tastefully lit deck. We found the staff really competent with English (not always true) and ordered drinks, food and wine. Drinks were fine; I have learned my lesson - tough to get a great dry vodka martini outside the US so we stuck with island favorites. They have a pretty great wine list and choices were widely varied and inexpensive. South American weighted. We had salads, ceviche and shared a stew. Salad was pretty atypical for our visit - fresh greens and an octopus vinaigrette. It was almost another ceviche. The ceviche was the best on the island. Citrus and chilis, cilantro and great fish. The stew (an island favorite) was awesome. Shrimp are everywhere. These were in a rich broth and great spices. We stuck around for dessert. Tapioca ice cream and a fruit compote. Beautifully presented. This isn’t inexpensive but, hey, it’s cheaper than Manhattan. And the island is just so beautiful. Worth the visit.
