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 and described the food, but he was speaking so close to the buffet table that I saw him spitting a couple of times in one of the dishes in front of him. We were starving at this point, but we kind of lost our appetite. The hot dishes got cold and the rest of the food was not very well prepared and the whole evening cost us close to 90 US$ per person.
The brazilian clientele seemed to enjoy the show and they assaulted the buffet table, but we were not impressed at all!!!

The Zé Maria restaurant was the worst experience me and my friends had at Noronha! We waited almost 2 hours to have our dishes served!! Poor service and no respect for costumers!

We loved everything about the restaurant. We considered doing the "Festival of Seafood", but were told we would be happier ordering a la cart. Thank goodness we did. We were thrilled with our choices, and it was much more reasonably priced meals. They have a pizza bar where you choose your own toppings, which was a hit with the younger crowd.
