We found isadora Duncan through the New York Times so we decide to give it a try. The restaurant is beautiful with a very helpful wait staff- some of whom speak very good English.

They even had someone their who spoke English! We were on a foodie pilgrimage and this was one of many restaurants that we were scheduled... More

First of all I want to say that I live in Florianopolis. So I decided to write some reviews from restaurants of my city. Isadora Duncan in my opinion ismthe best bistro style restaurant in Florianopolis. Only a few tables and a gorgeous food. It's expensive.
