The best food on Fernando de Noronha, great service.

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.

This resturant offered very great food. The experience was very good and would by far be considered to be a great resturant in any major city as well. The only minus would be the service that could have been more attentive. But overall a great experience.

Varanda is a great restaurant with delicious food and good service. We went there for 1 dinner and 2 lunches. First dinner was extraordinary we ordered the "Bobo' de Lagosta" and some caipirinhas. Our second time there was also good and since the size of plates were so big at the first time we decided to share one and order... More

We went to restaurant following the recommendation from a local, we didn't regret, very tasty food, in a nice environment, with a nice view. The staff is kind and the prices are not low, but it totally worth. We try at least 7 restaurants in the island and by far, this is the best!
