A treasure

Located in a fishing village where you can see actual fishing boats moored outside. Those boats provide the fish, shrimps served in the restaurant. As such the sea food is of a high quality and simply delicious. We had the shrimp fried in olive oil and garlic, grouper baked with capers, green... read more

Had a seafood sequence. Very large and really good. The garlic shrimps definitely a favorite! The story is really cool, although the mouldy notes are a little unappealing when eating. But a cool experience. And the beach absolutely incredible if you are looking for calm sea and a small fisherman's village away from the madness of the north.

The south of the island of Santa Catarina has been called by many the "Soul of the Island." One reason for this enchantment is the Arante Bar, which is already part of the natural beauty of Florianópolis, meets tradition (over 50 years), good food and friendly atmosphere with a local flavor. In addition to the varied menu of seafood (plus... More

The place is in a nice spot ( as most beach restaurants in Florianopolis). The decoration is somehow original but a bit dodgy with so many old dirty paper notes. The price is monopolistic. The food....mmm my wife refused to write down a note because she would not have left a nice message...

A really unique and special place. We came in late on a rainy and fierce Sunday afternoon and gorged on the amazing buffet. We were overwhelmed by the quality and abundance of seafood on offer. Staff are very friendly, helpful and even speak a little English! Great spot overlooking the bay. The story of the restaurant and the culture of... More

Well, this is a traditional restaurant that exists for many years in "Floripa". It's simple but the atmosphere and the food are marvelous ! It's quite far from downtown ( almost 30 Km ) in Pantano do Sul but the way to get there is plenty of beautiful views. You can get a bus if you want.

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
