Very interesting place. Where people around the world write notes and stick it to the walls. We had a big platter of seafood and was really good.

Great seafood experience at the beach of Pantano do Sul. Unique atmosphere with all the messages left by former guests, attentive staff. Great portions - a platter of two easily serves three. Good taste and quality!

Loved, loved, loved this place. Five of us sampled cachaça and caipirinha. We wrote notes and had some of the best seafood ever!! Quaint and charming. Picturesque view. Laid back. Comfortable, with in rushed time to socialize and visit. The ideal lunch.

The thing is, it is just like most restaurants in town: Overpriced, regular food and bad service. Still sort of cool to come in and see the stickers all over the place... but that is just it.

If you find the way to the restaurant, you will be amazed how much notes are hanging in there. People from all nations left a note, over decades. The family owned place is directly at the beach with a beautiful view over the water. The interior is rustic and is probably from the ancestors of the current owner. The service... More

if you want to try a bit of everything I'd suggest the "Sequencia de frutos do mar"... shrimp, fish, mussels, oysters, salad, rice and some more. Besides food you"ll have a nice view!

In an exclusive beach, you will find a restaurant with thousands of notes all over its walls. Those notes is from people like you that lived a message and hanged it on their preferred place. Great view to the beach and sea.

Located in one of the nicest places of the Florianopolis Island, whats really special about this place are the hundreds (or maybe thousands) of paper leaflets that decorate the place and have left there by visitors over the decades this place has been open.
