1. Aprecie: Located on a cute little side street off main road in town is one of the best restaurants I have been to in Brazil. The restaurant is simple with one wall open to outside of this charming cobblestone street. Start with the tuna sushi appetizer (below), the sushi was drizzled with soy, balsamic and honey making each bite sweet and tangy in a great combination. For dinner we tried the grilled tuna with sushi rice and asian vegetable slaw and shrimp over rice noodles with vegetables which were seasoned perfectly. Plus the service was excellent for Brazil. Total for the R$145 which was quite reasonable considering we also had a number of caipirinhas. Aprecie bem-te-vis 34,, Tibau do Sul – State of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil
2. Pan e vino: This cute Italian restaurant is located on side street near the end of the town shops area. It felt like we were dining at a traditional Italian restaurant with red and white checkered placemats, brick facade lined with plants and of course an outdoor seating area.
Start with the bolognese and or Parma crostinis, and a bottle of wine. For the main course we had the homemade gnocci which melts in your mouth its so good and the pesto dorado fish with potatoes and salad. The fish was incredible, definitely a top dish this trip.

3.Lampião Located at the start of the town this cute restaurant which is open on all sides, surrounded by trees and has inventive lights decorating the space always has a little bit of a wait, but it is worth it!
We had the banana leaf wrapped dorado with scalopped potatos and asparagus and the short rips with vegetables and potato. Both dishes were excellent, the caiparinhas are strong and the atmosphere was lovely. Highly recommend dining here while you are in Pipa.

4. Why Not Bar: Located on a small side street right off the main road, Why Not offers a wide variety of sophisticated and unique drinks and some delicious snacks. The scene is really fun and everyone is exceptionally interesting and friendly. The bar tender was awesome, and for every new concoction he created gave everyone who was at the bar a sample shots, the ones we tried were great!. There is also a roof top terrace that overlooks the ocean, awesome place for pre or post dinner drinks.
5. Aruman Crepes e Drinks: Best crepe place in Pipa, they have a large list of savory and sweet crepes to choose from. They are a little crunchier then normal crepes, its actually kind of awesome and the chicken curry crepe with grilled pineapple will rock your world
