Gaúcho: Great Meat, picanha, maminha etc
The owner is a Brazilian from the south, he has an italian wife. so here you can enjoy both cuisines, the best brazilian beef and the great italian pasta.
very friendly, Mister Luis welcomes you right from the start. we sat down and 5 minutes lates he brought an apetizer that was feijoada à brasileira that was the lunch from tha day.
It was amazing. after the dinner you´ll glady walk in the beach to your hotel.

Colher de Pau: Good and fresh food
the food in this restaurant is absolutely delicious. The place is informal and perhaps that's what makes it sooooo charming.Locals seem to overflow the restaurant, so I guess that's a good/positive sign!
The lady that owns it seems to be constantly checking on her business so service is extremely good.
Favorite Dish: I must recommend the Shripm rice. It is the best dish I tried and had to eat it again before going back home.
Actually, the staff was very nice. The lady owner was suprised (or intrigued) with my continious questions about the ingredients..so she took me to the kitchen and taught me how to cook the rice.
Of course Caipirinhas are a MUST.

Restaurant TIA NAIR: Don't Miss The Fresh Seafood!
Close to the beach.. Great view, nice ambient.. the service is excellent..
Against: Don't eat close to the front.. the people who passes in the street will annoy you trying to sell you something.
Favorite Dish: SEAFOOD!
Where to eat?
The pier there, known as Ponte dos Ingleses, is a lovely place to have a beer and watch the sunset. Rua dos Tabajaras itself is a joy to wander around, with its brightly coloured bars and restaurants , and glamorous young people out enjoying themselves
Restaurante Sobre o Mar: Excellent seafood
Great place right on the beach with a view of the open ocean. Enjoy a scrumptious lunch or dinner on the ground floor or open upper level. Good service, clean AND affordable! All this and the sound of the surf.
Favorite Dish: Only tried it once, we had salmon in a champagne sauce, and "tropical" shrimps - served in half a pineapple shell with rice.
Just delicious and generous portions too.

Land of sea food and caipirinhas
Restaurants... to be honest i only eat in 3 restaurants.. why? Cause you pass all day eating.. i explain better... Many people sells food everywhere! If you go to the beach you have lots of people selling fruits, grilled meat,schrimps and also cheese! Even by night if you go to the discos outside exists many people with small cars selling grilled food.. I snack all day with this kind and tasty food and i didn't had problems with that...
With a rich food diversity, Fortaleza offers everything, from regional dishes to international cuisine. The typical food reflects the strong traces related to the popular culture and the influence of the settlers. The most notable are baião de dois, carne-de-sol paçoca and of couse, seafood. The most traditional dish is peixada, composed of fish stewed in vegetable souce and pirão (manioc flour and fish sauce cream). From the countryside, comes carne-do-sol with paçoca and cassava, French beans, black pudding and stewed mutton. The local aperitif is cachaça, made from sugar-cane one of the region's principal products, with several locally produced brands known throughout the country.
The richness of tropical fruits is also traditionally known. The weather and the quality of the soil are favorable to the abundant growth in this region, turning fruit culture into an important business activity, one of the state's main export products. The main main ones are sugar apple, jack, sapodilla fruit, murucy fruit. hog plum, melon and acerola fruit. From these fruits, other homemade and industrialized products are obtained, such as juices, ice-creams, sweets, cajuina (regional beverage), cashew nuts, very appreciated not only in Brazil but in other countries as well.
Imperio do Sushi (Sushi Empire): Let's Sushi!
I LOVE SUSHI!!! Fortaleza is a great place to get sushi... Anymore, you can get it in every corner. Pretty much everywhere you go to eat sushi, the place is packed full with people. So, one night, my mom and I decided to look for a sushi bar that wouldn't be so full. For our surprise, there was a little place just a few blocks from our house. We decided to go in, and we could choose between two floors. It is pretty small there, so we stayed downstairs. The people there are lovely. The sushimen are a lot of fun. The sushi was the best I ate in my life. No need to say, we went back there at leat once a week for about three months! They all know me and my family by name and they always do everything in their power to make us happy. After a while they became more than sushimen, waitress and managers. They became people who cared. As I started observing, they treat everybody very good... It wasn't only us that they called by name and etc. They also make as many sushis you want and you get to pick the kind of each one of them. Anyways... The sushi is great, the environment is delightfull and the people are lovely.
Favorite Dish: My favorite sushi is "Sushi de Pate (sammon or tuna) (rice, pate and sea weed)" and "Ebi-Maki com queijo (Ebi-Maki w/ cheese) (rice, shrimp, sea weed and cheese)" . But I pretty much eat everything that is sushi... You can also get some sashimi there and a few kinds of Japanese soups or noodles!
Oh my Gosh... Where am I going to start from?? If you have a healthy appetite, Fortaleza IS THE PLACE to be. First of all, you have to decide what kind of food you want to eat. Well, in my opininon, you can get great Japanese/Chinese food at Moyashi (by the way, I'm not just saying that because the owner is my best friend). Well, after the Japanese food, what about some 'baiao de dois' from Colher de Pau? And what about the sea food? Fortaleza is definetly the place to be if you want to try wonderfull sea food. Also, a lot of barbicue and 'feijoada'. Also, there is some pretty nice cafes!!
Most of the restaurants in Fortaleza have a very delightfull environment. Some of them have live music playing, some of them have karaoke. There is always something 'happy' going on. Usually most of the people enjoy the athmosphere.
If you like meat, you should try one of the "Rodizios". Rodizios are restaurants where you get all you can eat meat, and you get a variaty of YUMMY meats!
Mario's restaurant in Canoa...
Mario's restaurant in Canoa Quebrada. I don't remember anything but Marinus; the Dutch restaurant owner asking me if I'd fancy a steak with gorgonzola sauce. Normally I do not miss any fooditems at home, but gorgonzola sauce....
Fortaleza is well served with...
Fortaleza is well served with nice restaurants, you can find from great sushi bars to wonderful italian food. But my suggestions are if you like japanese food go either to Kabuki or to Moyashi, but if you are a meat person you eat a great barbecue for about USD10 (for to people) at 'Picanha do Assis'. And I couldn't leave out the best Italian restaurant in town 'Familia Giulliano'.
You are going to find that food in Fortaleza is not expensive (specially because of the dollar high rates that you can get). Don't forget to go to small tipical restaurants where you can also find great food and try Fortaleza's specialty - sea food!
Fish and sea food (I tried...
Fish and sea food (I tried squid, it's great) are their main specialty...As I am not a big fan of those, I can't really recommend a restaurant...Try their crab, I heard it's fantastic! But pick a known restaurant, since you can easily get food intoxication from sea food (oysters mainly).
If one's up to have some...
If one's up to have some barbicue, go to Spetus; a little expensive but you're gonna find the best of meat, chicken, porch, bull, etc....
However, if your choice is Japaneses food, go to Moyash where on Satrudays they have an all that you can eat for only USD 12.00...delicious food and excellent service!
