It is true that some of the restaurants on Ilha da Gigóia are renowned and charge a lot for special dishes on the weekends, but what not everyone knows is that during the week most of these gastronomic establishments serve cheap food to meet the demand from Monday to Friday. and earn money from the Jardim Oceânico corporate movement.

Accessing the Island through the main deck you will soon come across the Sabor do Nordeste Restaurant with a view of the lagoon and typical decor, where you can have cheap executive dishes for lunch and also has a different northeastern menu if you prefer.
