Best food in Noronha!

This is, by far, the best restaurant in Fernando de Noronha. Great variety of dishes, quality is awesome, and the prices are fair. Try to have a table on the varanda, which is very pleasant.

Our waiter got everyone's order wrong, several times.One main plate arrived an hour later than everyone else's - this after we had waited an hour for our mains. The manager apologized for the poor service and they comped us free dessert (which the waiter got wrong!) but then they charged us for service, which we refused to pay. Get the... More

The food was very tasty and nicely presented. The space was quite old fashioned and bit boring. They have a garden that could be nice as a seating area but is not used as part of the restaurant.

We went to this restaurant with friends we made in Fernando de Noronha as they had been there before and liked it so much they didn't mind coming again with us. Albeit a bit hidden, the Varanda is absolutely worth it. With great food, great ambience and great service it is no wonder it is high at the top of... More

I've been at Varanda 2 times in July. Everything was great. You must try the Farofa Crocante is the best at Noronha. Some improvements are necessary in the restaurant but in the end of the day the food is good, drinks are fine and people do their job. For lunch and dinner Varanda is perfect and kids' menu are available

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

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.

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.
