On Fogo Island you really have to look out for a place to eat, especially before main season. Our host recommended this place for dinner. We drove past first as it is a small place combined with a shop, quite unimposing and simple. But when...More

After having many many fish and seafood meals during our trip around the island we landed at the Cod Jigger on a rainy mid week evening. I ordered the turkey soup and my travelling companion ordered a hot turkey sandwich with all the trimmings. My...More

I was so fortunate that this restaurant was the only one open on Fogo Island (other than the inaccessible Fogo Island Inn) in Mid-May when I visited. A small restaurant for families - the fish and chips were great. The fish was the best I've...More

The food was really good but rather expensive. The restaurant needs some separation from the store front and the bathroom was out of order while we were there.

This is a local service centre, easily accessible in Fogo. It is not fancy in any way, but if you are selective, you can eat relatively well. I had a very good turkey/vegetable soup, with homemade broth; one of our friends had a good cod...More

While it's not a lot to write home about, Chester Fried is nice place to stop for a quick bite of fish and other comfort food. Definitely one of the unique stops as you explore Fogo Island

The Cod Jigger Diner family restaurant is located in the centre of Fogo Island, approximately 20 minutes from the ferry. A place where you can stop by for a coffee break and find directions to anywhere on Fogo Island. Grab a snack or sit for dinner, enjoy a full menu from Chester fried chicken to our very own Fogo Island cod. We also have accommodations right next door, stay at our four bedroom guest house and share your experiences with other travellers, have the whole house to yourself. We provide a full kitchen where you can prepare your own meals, a large common room and dining room. Each bedroom has comfy beds and tv. Quite common to see caribou all year long especially in late fall. Our central location is great, it's about 15 minutes from all communities and points of interest. You will be pleased with your experience on Fogo Island.
