I'm crazy about their food. It's top 3 in Noronha. If you have the chance to go, consider ordering the linguine with bananas.

This is my second time in Noronha, and both times I managed to go to Varanda. The food has always been good, but it is not a memorable meal. As much as I believe the restaurant tries hard to be seen as an upscale restaurant, the food is not top-notch. It is uneven and can be quite salty sometimes. The... More

My husband and I visited Fernando de Noronha for 6 days in Feb 2015 and after the first visit on our second day on the island dinned every night at the Varanda.

I would recommend this on the 4th night after Maravilha, Teju-Acu and Mergulhao. Food was great! Try to sit outside, it's a charming experience. It's not 4th because it's bad in any way, just that the others are a little better and all have better ambiance. Varanda has a pretty extensive menu and everything we had was very good. Each...

Very tasty food, excellent and helpful service. Good choice of wine. However the food is overpriced.....as everywhere in Fernando de Noronha. We tried several restaurants and ended up going back here 4 times.....worth to try, you will love it.

The food there was really delicious, the wines perfect, we enjoyed our dinner very much, especially after travelling 5 hours by plane to get there - in Brazilian planes you do not get literally anything edible during the flights so we were starving at the point we got there. I would still recommend this restaurant even if I were not... More

We went with Varada for our wedding dinner for 75 guests and not only were we not disappointed but chef Auricélio Romão and his staff exceeded our expectations. Not to mention what kind people he and his staff are. This was our menu and every single thing on it was delicious!! Also, this restaurant is one of the most reasonable... More

Definitely one of the best restaurants in Noronha. Good service ( for Noronha standards) and excellent seafood. Don´t forget to order a side of "Farofa Crocante" (toasted manioc and shredded bread mixture with a hint of garlic) that goes well with almost any plate. Best tables are at the balcony, but to get one you need to arrive early or... More

Menu of the restaurant is not really long. What we have had ordered tastes well, we enjoyed. I already had the same dish in other places of Brazil for much less money and simply I don't think in Veranda tasted so much better. If Fernando de Noronha is your only destination or you are short with the time in Brasil... More

Ate here twice during a 5 day stay on the island ... Left very satisfied both times. Great tasting food and a good menu selection. The outdoor seating area is gorgeous.. This seems to be amongst the most popular restaurants on the island.
