“Everyone goes here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

Tatty bits of paper, with messages from previous customers, hang from the walls, but this bar is an essential visit for all holidaymakers to Florianopolis. Try their home-made cachaça (it´s free) - but don´t drink too much of it.

“Fun place! Get real, haters!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

Bar do Arante is a little treasure. I wouldn't say the food is 5-star, but it's good, and the portions are HUGE. The notes are fun! That's part of it's charm! Go to Bar do Arante and leave a little mark in Florianopolis :)

Also, we were asked by almost everyone we encountered if we had gone to this restaurant. It was everyone's first suggestion.

Oh yeah! And the waitstaff was so nice, they gave us a free shot of cachaca on our way out.

Go!

“Not sure Whatpeople see in this place.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2011

Been here several times and promissed not to return anymore. Food is average at times mediocre. Several typical restaurants in Town cook much better food. People love the post-its on the wall but it is actually anti-higienic if you evaluate it carefully, a public health hazard and the place would be shut down if it was elsewhere with efificient health inspections. I know some folks may get mad at me for this review but I can't help it. The place is not good and it is unfair to the other great restaurants in the Island to be ranked after this one.

“Tradition and quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2011

Very traditional restaurant in southern Floripa. It's really a long shot to get there, but it's worthy. I recommend the "Sequencia de Frutos do Mar", it's like a degustation of many dishes like fish, oyster, shrimps, crabs, etc.

“Great food and ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2011

I was staying at Jurere International and we drove for the day to Bar do Arante. We had the buffet so we could tried different food. The place was very busy. The food was great and very relaxing atmosphere. Price very reasonable.
The bar has little notes from people all over the world. People write messages on small pieces of paper and glue to the walls. Very interesting.
Definitely a place to visit if you are visiting Floripa.
