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.

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

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.
