There is an anomaly in the TRIPADVISOR rating and ranking. This place should be way up in the top 10 restaurants and bars in Santa Catarina island (often confused with the city of Florianopolis). "Bar and Restaurante do Arante" has history, authenticity and character. The food of the island, (Acores Island immigrants heritage) is not the most sophisticated cuisine on... More

We went here two times during our stay. The first time we had the shrimp risotto which was really good. The second time we tried the Sequenca do mare (mix of different seafood and fish) and both of us got really sick from the seafood. Also, the size portions were ridiculous, way too much food for two persons. The food... More

We went there few years before and I like it very much. We sat there for some caipirinhas and we really enjoy it . It's a bar full of small papers that the customers post it .!!!!!

Very interesting place. Where people around the world write notes and stick it to the walls. We had a big platter of seafood and was really good.

Great seafood experience at the beach of Pantano do Sul. Unique atmosphere with all the messages left by former guests, attentive staff. Great portions - a platter of two easily serves three. Good taste and quality!

Loved, loved, loved this place. Five of us sampled cachaça and caipirinha. We wrote notes and had some of the best seafood ever!! Quaint and charming. Picturesque view. Laid back. Comfortable, with in rushed time to socialize and visit. The ideal lunch.

The thing is, it is just like most restaurants in town: Overpriced, regular food and bad service. Still sort of cool to come in and see the stickers all over the place... but that is just it.

If you find the way to the restaurant, you will be amazed how much notes are hanging in there. People from all nations left a note, over decades. The family owned place is directly at the beach with a beautiful view over the water. The interior is rustic and is probably from the ancestors of the current owner. The service... More

if you want to try a bit of everything I'd suggest the "Sequencia de frutos do mar"... shrimp, fish, mussels, oysters, salad, rice and some more. Besides food you"ll have a nice view!
