What a great restaurant. Definitely on the pricey side but a great splurge meal. Pumpkin stuffed with shrimp was incredible, oysters fresh and delicious and fried fish all highly recommended!

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

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... 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

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!
