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...

This is a great place to visit in the nights that there is no festival gastronômico. In this festival, very overpriced, you will get a lot of food, but also a lot of people fighting for the food. Go in a regular night and you will have great service and better food.

We went there for the the festival and didn't worth the time, the waiting and the money. The restaurant is over crowded, the service is very slow, and the food is not better than many rstaurants much modest in the island. Very over rated and over priced. Honestly the best part are the desserts..

We decided to try the buffet dinner which came highly recommended. It was supposed to start at 20:30, but the food was only served at 21:15. When the buffet was ready with all the hot and cold dishes we were summoned to serve ourselves but before we could start the owner Ze Maria introduced himself first and then the cook... More
