You’ll never run out of things to do in Florianópolis, but apart from being the premier party destination in Brazil, it also has some of the world’s finest restaurants.
Artesano Pizza Bar, Lagoa da Conceição
Artesano Pizza Bar serves up delicious, homemade pizza in a little hut close to the Conceição Lagoon. Its atmosphere is a warm and welcoming one with lots of pictures decorating the walls and a lovely little garden where you can enjoy your creatively concocted dinner.
Arante Bar e Restaurante, Orla do Pântano do Sul
The Arante Bar e Restaurante is one of Florianópolis’ most unique spaces. There are roughly 70 000 sheets of paper hanging from each wall and even dangling from the ceiling, all creating an incredibly special atmosphere. During the week they provide an á la carte menu and then switch to a plentiful buffet for diners to enjoy over the weekend.
Bistrô Santa Marta, Rua Laurindo Januário da Silveira
The Bistrô Santa Marta is a tiny little restaurant. There are only eight tables available, so expect a very homely atmosphere and be sure to book well in advance. Only fresh produce of the finest quality is used to create meat and seafood dishes which are as much a treat for the eyes as they are for the tastebuds.
Donna Jurerê Internacional, Jurerê Beach
Donna is located near the Jurerê International beach and features a perfect blend of luxury thanks to a high-end restaurant, a well-stocked bar, and a jam-packed club. Their delicious cocktails can be enjoyed with truly a high-end ambience and it’s the perfect place to indulge in clubbing right through the night if you’re feeling up to it or sitting quietly and enjoying top Aussie online slots games if you’re not!
Forneria Catarina, Av. Me. Benvenuta
Forneria Catarina is a friendly, welcoming spot that’s purported to serve the best pizza outside of Napoli! They use only high-quality ingredients and offer lactose-free starters and pizza for those who have this dietary requirement. All their pies are made in an old-fashioned oven.
Ostradamus, Ribeirão da Ilha
You’ll feel like you’ve dived into another world when you enter Ostradamus, who has created a name for itself when it comes to how best to serve oysters.
The restaurant has a wonderful harbour feel to it, having been decorated with an incredible eye for detail. The oysters are kept in a lovely aquarium, and their private pier allows you to enjoy your dinner while floating on the water.
Pier 54 Restaurante, Av. Osvaldo Rodrigues Cabral
Established in 1999, Pier 54 Restaurant has been offering guests from all over the world a menu featuring sensational seafood and fantastic fish dishes for 20+ years.
