I tried to go twice to Varanda because of the positive reviews, but none of them I left satisfied. I agree that the service is good, but the food did not pleased me. It was well served but with too much sauce and made me feel a heavy feeling in my stomach.

You have to try "arroz de frutos do mar", tasty, not so heavy and special flavors from Brazil. I went there with other two girl friends and we shared only one dish and was enough for us, it depends on how hungry you are.

Ótima comida com preco justo para Noronha. Excellent option for lunch or dinner. The fishes of course are on the main options. I totally recommend.

We loved this restaurant so much, we went two nights we were on the island (out of 5). Easy to get in (we were the only ones in there at on point!) and food was delicious. As other reviewers said, anything with the pumpkin sauce is fantastic! Both meals we got were family style and more than enough for the... More

Food her was excellent, service was very good. The dishes are creative, traditional Brazilian food and the farofa is fantastic. Most dishes are enough for two people. The shrimp in pumpkin cream sauce was very good. There is limited seating on the balcony, it's worth reserving.

I went twice to this restaurant, and we ordered different dishes each time. They were all outstanding! I would stand out as my favorite the shrimps with squash (camarão ao creme de abóbora). But we liked everything there! The dishes really serve two people.

It is the best restaurant and the "prawns in pumpkin cream" was our favorite choice in the menu. We went for both dinner and lunch. It gets rather crowded at night, but it is almost empty for lunch, which made a much better experience. The price is very good, other restaurants in the island are even more expensive and not...

Great place. Is the best food in Noronha, with reasonable price (in Noronha, nothing is cheap, but this restaurant is not expensive). Take a plate for to and you will eat a lot and well. There are great drinks (I've tried a Caipirinha de Caju that was great). I've stayed seven nights in Noronha and went ther for three times,... More
