“Massive oysters and good seafood”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

While visiting Florianópolis we wanted to try some of the recommended seafood restaurants. Ostradamus always came up as one of the best, and we are certainly glad we made the trek down from the north of the island to check it out.

We started off with 24 oysters - raw and three cooked flavors. The cooked oysters were great, but the standout was easily the raw oysters. Massive, delicious and incredibly fresh with almost no grit. Hands down the best oysters I've had. The fact that you can sit facing the very water where these oysters come from explains their freshness.

We also got the seabass plate to share for two - all fish plates are large and could easily feed two to four people (we ate only half). The fish was good and the sides were standard (not much to say about white rice and little fried potato balls). The shrimp sauce was good too, but I couldn't stop thinking about the oysters. If I were to go back, I'd probably only eat raw oysters.

Highly recommended.

“Eating oysters near where they are grown”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

The food is good, menu, wine list and service as well. The landscape is part of the enchantment. They grow their own oysters that are served.

Maravellous place with the best fresh seafood in the island called Santa Catarina, city of Florianópolis. There you are able to eat everything from the sea of your choice, and I am sure you will eat fresh and with fantastic taste plates. GO AHEAD...GO THERE IF YOU ARE AROUND HERE.

“Must go restaurant”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Its expensive, but very good.
They have all the sea food but the oysters are their speciality.
The view is great, and you can sit at the deck over the sea.
