It's a little difficult to find this restaurant, the street number wasn't available on my GPS, but I found it on Google maps. The restaurant is just off the main road and is sign-posted, but if you're not paying attention you may miss it. The restaurant is at the end of a driveway, so there is no road noise if... More

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

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
