“Very good oysters”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

This is a cosy, quite huge restaurant with oysters as a speciality. There are a lot of oysterfarms close by. We were a family of 5 people with grown-up kids. We ordered 3 dozens oysters as a starter and two fish dishes as a main course. The portions are huge and we ended up with too much food. If we go there a second time I will go for the oysters and nothing more. The waiter recommended a bottle of very good Brazilian chardonnay, and we were very satisfied. If you like oysters this is the place to go!

“Superb seafood in idyllic setting”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

This was our second visit to Ostradamus and it won't be our last. We ate in the extension to the main restaurant that is built over the beach, which gives excellent views. The speciality is obviously oysters but one is spoilt for choice as they are presented in so many different ways. We started with pasteis de camarão followed by octopus with hot oysters with a ginger, honey and balsamic glaze, all of which was superb. The staff are smartly dressed and both helpful and friendly. Not surprisingly for a restaurant of this quality it was busy so it would make sense to book.

This restaurant is just amazing! Try the "Ostradamus Shrimp" as your main course and the delicious oysters as a starter! Satisfaction guaranteed. We simply loved it! Best restaurant experience in years!

“Heaven for oysters lovers”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

True, it's somewhat pricy... but sitting on the dock, watching the sunset and chewing on those fantastic oysters, I honestly don't give a damn :-) visitors will enjoy scenic views and more importantly, most likely the best oysters they ever had. Freshness and unique cleansing technique contribute significantly to the quality of the oysters. The menu offers a wide range of selection and some very interesting choices.

If you happen to cross by Florianópolis, don't miss it!

“Best oyster I've ever had”
Reviewed November 19, 2013 via mobile

I have been living in Floripa for a few months and have visited the oyster farm Ostradamus buys from... It's about 15 minutes farther south so the food is so fresh. We ordered 1 dozen natural oysters with limão (lime) and first of all they were HUGE and second of all it was literally the best oyster I have ever had. 1 dozen was R$34, which is like $16 US dollars so it beats what we can get in the states. The service was great, you can sit on an amazing dock and watch the sunset, and enjoy the best oysters ever.
