Very cosy place. We had dinner there for three nights. All dishes tasted delicious. The portions were very big, more than enough for two. The price was very good considering the avarage price for similar restaurants in Fernando de Noronha. I definitely recommend it.

Had a very good dinner here and well-worth going back to. Friendly people and plenty of choice. A number of excellent fish dishes.

in Noronha. Would have given 5 stars if there was less salt on the two delicious dishes we ordered. Service is lackluster but food (and drinks) compensate for it.

Great food, great service! It does not have a panoramic view but this happens with most restaurants in Noronha since there are almost no restaurants with beach view.

Good cuisine, very good service and the restaurant lay out is very nice. The point to remark is that the location is not good.

I had great expectations about food in Noronha, and Varanda lived up to it. We ordered Shrimp Risotto, Moqueca and a Cheese SEafod platter (dont remember the name right now) and we had one of our best dinners in Brazil. It is a little pricey however.

probably i had really great expectations, but i wasn't so convinced from this restaurant: quite expensive and nothing special! (by the way, noronha is expensive everywhere!)

It is a hidden treasure, middle of nowhere...I was told during the day they have a great view, but I was there for a veggie dinner and all I was able to see was darkness... However, the service was amazing, friendly... More

The menu is varied, many dishes based on local fish and "delicias nordestinas".. The waiters are very attentive, the food arrived fast and great quality. The drinks also exceeded expectations! If you're lucky to get there early, you can place in the beautiful and romantic balcony. Remember to bring insect repellent! The price is expensive as everything on the island,... More
