Hooray! We open again. Come in and say hello!
A Varina Petisqueira & Bar opened its doors on 18th of October 2019 with the aromas of Portugal drifting through Norfolk's East Coast. Somewhat of a hidden oasis in the midst of fast food franchises; A Varina doesn't venture into gourmet designer cuisine either. Instead it offers the kind of soul-satisfying petiscos (Portuguese tapas) the Portuguese people like to enjoy while catching up with friends, watching a football game or after a long week of work to kick back and relax. From the traditional recipes accented with cold beer, delectable fish pastries, seafood salads and traditional scrumptious chicken recipes; there is something for every palate.
A Varina is a place for everyone: a romantic dinner date, an indulgent Sunday family lunch, a Saturday Latino party with friends or even functions or large groups. Come dine in a small corner of Portugal...in the Great Yarmouth seafront! Gena and Lee are the owners of A Varina who bring their love of Portuguese cuisine to Norfolk. Together they form the heart of what is essentially a family-run business.
We make our food from scratch with 100% fresh natural ingredients.
At A Varina, there is something on the menu to satisfy every palate.
Our fare is so much more than just food. It’s the best food, period. That's why we source locally and hand pick so we can share the benefits of a healthy meal with you.
Our food is made daily in-house by our Head Chef. Discover for yourself the food that you won't stop talking about, moulded to perfection by the hands of the perfectionist.
“The best restaurant in town. Awesome Portuguese recipies served by a team that makes you feel like you're part of the family.”
