This place was awesome. The price is average on the island. It looks like a fancy restaurant. The waiters are nice and the food is great. I recommend "carne de sol" (around BRL109 in Apr/2017). This is good for 2-3 people. And try one of their caipirinhas.

Varanda came well recommended, so our expectations were perhaps too high. That said, we enjoyed the evening, which began with finding this out of the way place. The simple grilled fish was a bit overcooked and dry; the grilled fish with caramelized fruit and coconut rice was tastier. The restaurant is casual and has a nice vibe, but it is... More

The place is nice but the prices are way to high for the food. We ordered chicken curry with vegetables and it was such a small serving.

No air conditioning, so this place gets pretty hot at lunchtime. Food is quite good, as is service. I would go back for dinner.

A bit tricky to find but plenty of space and seating once there. Food is reasonable and service is good so worth a visit if you are in the area.

We ordered a risotto with different seafood and with a glam bread above. The environment is very cool for couples and friends but that access is terrible in rain days.

Varanda was recommended by a fellow 'foodie' friend and it didn't disappoint! Despite that the place was packed, the service was amazingly efficient. I arrived around 8:30 and was able to sit immediately, but noticed a line forming by 9pm... (however, this was during Carnaval, so maybe not normally so crazy...). I had the starter with the ceviche and mango... More

We are here purely based on the TripAdvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. We shared the shrimp and mango salad which the substituted with pineapple as unfortunately they were out of mango followed by the lobster in a coconut yellow sauce (#021 on the menu). Both were superb. We then shared the chocolate cake (rather a brownie) with ice cream.... More
