“Ate so well...”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Went one night to Varanda restaurant. They have a very varied menu and I had an amazing dish.
Was pleased that they didn't take long at all to serve it and the staff is very attentive.

The only only issue for me was the live band that played too loud and music not to my taste. So wasn't enjoying the experience to the fullest. But besided that I ate very, very well and had another great night.

“Great view and best food in Noronha”

We tried the lobster with tropical fruits and vegetables with the crunchy "farofa" - one of the beast meals we ever had!

A number of the tours end up at lunch here. The menu is extensive & enjoyable. Closed Friday nights for lectures about the island.
