Decent choices of food at city prices, but that's okay given the location. Service is pretty slow, but staff are great. One of the staff let me hook up to the internet on his hotspot because the restaurant didn't have Wi-Fi.

The best time to enjoy its culinary is at lunchtime. Dinner always crowded, you'll have to wait. Their baba de moça (dessert) is their best.

If you go to Noronha you must go to Varanda. Absolutely amazing seafood, you can't go wrong here. Staff is friendly and menu has good options if you're sick of eating seafood every day (parmigiana is awesome).

We were STARVING when we arrived on a Sunday afternoon. We hadn't thought ahead about siesta hours and bringing snacks, and the markets were closed, and most restaurants, too.

We went for lunch and the shrimp we had was very good and a large sized portion. Not much competition as some of the places nearby were awful. Just lacking a good view but couldn't fault the food.
