The seafood is amazing, caiparinhas cachasa-y, and the views are spectacular, being right at the beach. The most unique and interesting thing about this restaurant is the fact that everyone who goes there leaves their mark on a piece of paper which is then stuck to almost any surface where there's a spot! Back in 2003 there were a lot... More

Great restaurant in excellent location. I ate the cheapest dish, a risotto camarao, and it was excellent! Will go back there for sure.

Quite charming restaurant by the sea shore where visitants are welcome to leave stick notes all over the place and perhaps one day come back and find it. The owners are receptive and friendly and so are the waiters. Many famous people have been there for a meal. Talking about which, they serve a very tasty "shrimp sequence" in which... More

I went to this place with my rental car after a non so enjoyable visit to Florianopolis and although I dislike going to restaurants alone I liked it due to the high quality of the food at a reasonable cost. The fish was amazing (don't evne know the name anymore), the bartenders helped me very well, and the side dishes... More

Funny place, very popular. There are stickers that covers all the walls with messages, it is usual to see people trying to find old messages left by themselves, maybe years ago... The food is very tasty, we tried typical fish dishes and they were good. The service is not attentive, and we found the check a little bit expensive and... More

We visited the restaurant last Sunday after a whole day of trekking and enjoying Lagohina do Leste, which is by the way a beautifull beach. Last year when passing through Florianopolis during our holidays we had some seafood empanadas - which were very good! So we decided to go back for dinner! The restaurant has something special with all thoses... More

We were recommended this restaurant during our stay in Florianopolis, and decided to give it a try. The location is nice, being it very close to the beach, and the interior has a "character", with the walls entirely covered with notes from the previous customers. Food is quite good but expectations were maybe too high, we had a better experience... More

Well, this is a famous fisherman bar located in Pantano do Sul beach. Thousands of notes are sticked on the walls. It's a bit far from the city, and the seafood is average. So, as I the title says: if you are around the spot...
