Visited Fogo Island in August 2016. Stopped here at Nicole's Cafe for a late lunch. The menu was limited......not a lot to pick from for that time of day. There were five of us and two ordered the fish and chips. Both found a odd taste on the fries and mentioned to the waitress. She did nothing to fix it.... More

Lovely restaurant, atmosphere very welcoming and decor nice. Food delicious, service great! You can see chef in action preparing meals. Location of washrooms was only drawback that was disappointing. Still would return but would request seating location. Seasonal restaurant.

Don't bother trying to dine at the Fogo Island Inn, Nicole's Cafe is a better alternative with an outstanding menu and food.

The service was superb. The owners are actually serving, I think. They made us feel that we were the most important customers to come in that day. beautiful ambience.

We visited Fogo Island and stayed in the community of Fogo and took the short road trip to see the famous Fogo Island Inn in the community of Joe Batt's Arm. We stopped into this cafe for lunch because there was a nice parking lot outside and we liked the look of the place. We were promptly seated by our... More

Fogo Island is beautiful. We went to Nicole's because of the great reviews. The staff was very welcoming but the food was not what we expected. It has a small menu. The food our group ordered was fresh and tasty but we had expected a more eclectic and inventive offering.

We went for dinner at Nicole's during our stay on Fogo Island. We had the cod dinner. It was very good. It is a popular place on the island because the food is better than most places on the island. The prices are a bit pricey. Service was bit slow but it was a very busy evening.
