The island’s best. But slow service.

Zé Maria has the best restaurant in Fernando de Noronha. Whatever you choose will be delicious. An advice: even if not indicated, most plates serves two, especially with you have appetizers. But be aware: the service is slow, extremely slow! As for the gastronomic festival, I have reviewed it on... read more

Zé Maria has the best restaurant in Fernando de Noronha. Whatever you choose will be delicious. An advice: even if not indicated, most plates serves two, especially with you have appetizers. But be aware: the service is slow, extremely slow! As for the gastronomic festival, I have reviewed it on my review of Zé Maria’a B&B.

You're going to heard conflicting opinions about this restaurant. Some believe it is the most luxurious place you can go in Noronha, others hate it. My personal experience back in November 2014 put me in the second group. Food was tasteless and service very confusing. If you are in this island on the middle of the Atlantic ocean and the... More

Portions were small and we were expecting more inventive dishes. Service was by far the best on the island. As others have said, wine list is off limits. Maybe I will try the festival next time.

Very good food, beautiful layout and perfect attention. Maybe the things to improve is a place to park near the restaurant because a rain caught us and we were parked a couple of blocks from the door.

At first time, it may look kinda expensive, as it is located at one of the most exclusive hotel in the island. But, if you compare it's food quality and price with some other restaurant in Noronha, even those very popular self service, you'll find it's maybe the best cost benefit at all!! At Wednesday and Saturday they run a... More

The place is beautiful! Has a hydroponic garden where you can choose your own salad and they prepare it in time! The Menu is extensive and quite varied food. The portions are huge and very well served. Excellent quality! Drinks are delicious, and it has attentive waiters. It is the same price as all the other restaurants on the Island!... More

I went three times at this restaurant (for lunch and dinner) in two different trips and they were all great! The food was tasty and well presented. It can serves two people, but do not expect large portions. Service were good and orders came quickly. The roof is retractable, so if there is a beautiful night possibly you'll dinner in... More

The cost of wine is prohibitive, do not even look at the wine list However despite the high prices, it was a very good eating experience. Remember not to go alone , so as to share dishes and enlarge your tasting reach. If it would not be for the prices, it would be a almost irretouchable meal. The decoration, the... More

The Festival is something really different from common food experiences... there is a ritual before start eating and also there is no ordination/raw to start serving yourself. I can say it is fantastic to the eyes and to the paladar... On Wednesdays there is a pizza night where you can ask for your own ingredients to put on the pizza...
