Superb Food - A Bit Pricey But Worth It!

My family of 3 boys (11, 9, 7) and 3 adults (Mom, Dad, Gramma) went for a delicious meal! We tried to make this place our first stop in Brazil but couldn't find it with our GPS - just drive to the base of the big hill at the entry point of Floripa and it's right there - excellent parking... read more

Good service and beautiful place, nice atmosphere but very pricey and the seafood plate was totally overcooked. Not good!

This restaurant is super well located, with both inside and outside tables and a very beautiful view of the lake (Lagoa da Conceição). I've been there several times with friends visiting Florianópolis and all of them enjoyed the place and the food very much. The fish dishes are very good and the portions are big enough to be shared by... More

It's a restaurant well located. Between "Praia Mole and Barra da Lagoa" besides "Lagoa da Conceição". It has plates indicating. The food is special ( The price too ! It's not a cheap place ) and it's good for a sunny day or at night with your wife or husband. http://www.pontadascaranhas.com.br

We were guided by a local that did not know the place and was afraid of what we would find. What a great surprise. Really good meal! We ate the house star which is a breaded cherne fish stuffed with shrimp and cream cheese, ur friend had a Parisian chicken and everything was great. My son really enjoyed the walk... More

The moqueca is fantastic. We arrived at dusk, so could see the view, which is great as well. We were planning on walking there, but so glad that we chose to take a taxi as we felt we would have got lost on our way! Taxi knew exactly where to go!

I loved the restaurant, the gratinated fish with coconut milk was fresh and excellent. I will surely come back, because I was very well served too.

Highly rec the mixed seafood grill. We were not very hungry though ate almost the entire entree. The raw oysters also were so fresh and a treat...even for a lucky Los Angeles resident who has fresh Santa Monica seafood regularly. Staff were attentive and wonderful. I will absolutely return again on our next visit.

Nice outdoor area on the lagoon; nothing could be better for enjoying a dinner and refresh after a hot day. We started with good caipirinhas and went on with nice oysters. We had mixed seafood moqueqa for main course and it was excellent. The waiters' professionality leaves space for improvement.
