Not the best night for this restaurant, as it was windy and a but cold, and this prevented us from fully enjoying the water view. The pastel de camarão was a good, flavorful appetizer. The Caldeirada de Frutos do Mar was tasteful, but I was less taken by the Linguado Marinado. Except for the view, not very eager for a... More

I used to come to this restaurant fairly regularly while living in Florianopolis, and a visit was essential on a recent return trip. Food: Good. I agree - go for fish. We shared some cooked oysters and then Camarão na Moranga - a classic that was well prepared, though not understanding. Drinks: standard range of beers and sucos. Location: outstanding.... More

This restaurant is on the beach, which makes for a beautiful view while you're having your meal. It also has very tasty options, if you like mostly sea food. It works for going with friends or a romantic meal. The staff is great too.

Serviço here is very good. Don't even think to eat anything but fish. Salmão e anchova are the best here. Take your camera and enjoy one of the best view in Sambaqui.

My first trip to your beautiful nation, Brazil. I stayed in Florianopolis, the Magical Island. Restaurant Pitangueiras provides some of the best food I had in Brazil and at very fair prices. The staff is welcoming and the view is breath taking. The owners of the establishment greet you and make you feel at home. I could eat there everyday... More

The view of this place is inded beatifull, food is mediocre and roaches walking around are not uncommon. Ok for a beer outside but it would be one of my last choices in the island for a meal, even though it is close to my home.
