“Best place to eat in Noronha”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Close to the port, tucked away in an alley (there's a sign in the main road indicating the restaurant), it serves the best food in Fernando de Noronha.
The portions are generous and the food really tastes home-made. Specialties vary from seafood (crab, lobster, shrimp), fish and few meat dishes. They also have a vast choice of appetizers (including pastéis).
Staff is friendly and attentive.
The wine choice is limited and expensive, like anywhere else on the island, and the caipirinhas worth a try.
We found it to have the best quality /price ratio on the island.
There's outdoor sitting (limited). No reservation needed if you go relatively early.

“Beautiful place, nice food. Expensive.”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Delicious food, nice place, nice service. But, as every other place in Noronha, really over priced.
I'd really suggest more typical Brazilian desserts should be added to the Menu. Nothing with Acai, Cocada, Doce de Leite?

“Definitely a good choice in Noronha.”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Varanda, in my opinion, is not the most pleasant restaurant in Noronha. It's not the best and it isn't the cheapest.
But it is pleasant enough, some of the dishes are very good and depending on what you order it isn't that expensive.
I go there every time I go to Noronha and always recommend it to friends.
