One of my favorite restaurant in Noronha. Varanda is been in business for over 10 years and has a great chef. Member of Prato da Boa Lembrança.

In my opinion, the best restaurant in the island. The food is fresh, and the service is good. The best tables are the ones at the balcony. I recommend the dishes with fish, always fresh. I went there 3 times and the service and food were consistently good. The prices are similar to other restaurants in the island (it means,... More

The fish dish with Shrimp was magnificent. We ate at about 7pm and the balcony area out the back was already full, but it's a lovely little place and highly deserves to be ranked No.1 on Fernando De Noronha

We enjoyed the casual dining experience at Veranda. The large portion of prawns, okra and rice was very good, the pasta was nice and so were the juices. As the name suggests they have a nice covered outdoor area which looks over the garden. As with most Noronha restaurants the prices are high for Brazil.

Aiming to try as much restaurants during our stay in the island we couldn't have missed Varanda, given it was rated as the number 1 option. We ordered de moqueca de langosta, it came with coconut rice and farofa. The service was great, the restaurant was nice and quiet during our visit but going back to the food, they just... More

Decent choices of food at city prices, but that's okay given the location. Service is pretty slow, but staff are great. One of the staff let me hook up to the internet on his hotspot because the restaurant didn't have Wi-Fi.

The best time to enjoy its culinary is at lunchtime. Dinner always crowded, you'll have to wait. Their baba de moça (dessert) is their best.
