Amazing! Amazing! Amazing food. Honestly i really dont like the way how brazilians coock a seafood, but this restaurant has international standarts. Mostly reccomended - a clams in butter sauce. And fish pate. Fresh oysters and wine.
You must visit this place!
Two dishes here were outstanding: the fresh oysters and the Polvo (octopus) a la Provenzal. The oysters were sweet, plump and delicious (although the kitchen might make more of an effort to keep more of the liquor on the shell). The octopus was one of...the best I've had, with great olive oil and peppers, redolent of caramelized garlic, and extraordinarily tender. We also shared a main dish of grilled fish --good but nothing too special. All in all, a very good option near downtown Florianópolis.More
I was on a business trip and had to stay in Florianapolis over the Easter weekend. I decided to go for Fish and/or Seafood due to the proximity to the sea.
I was the first guest at 7.00 pm and I was warmly welcomed by...the staff as well as the chef.
I asked for recommendations and ordered "Grilled cod fish prepared the Portuguese way" . It was delicious. The waiter provided me some Florianapolis leaflets to shorten the time whilst I was waiting for my meal
The cod was grilled to the point and served with vegetables "al dente", a tasty shrimps sauce and an amazing fish flavored rice.
While I was eating the chef served me a freshly grilled king prawn - perfectly spiced and juicy inside
Finally I got a small selection of ice cream despite the fact that I was already more than full.
The meal was quite expensive compared to other restaurants I have been in the area but it was worth every reais.
For sure I will come back here and try all the other options from the comprehensive menu card.More

Dear juergen ,
It was a great pleasure to receive your message and feedback ! We Will be Walting for you soon! Best regards!😃😃😃
Sometimes you just never know where or when you will find an open restaurant when the rest of the city seems to have rolled up the carpet and gone to the beach on Sunday. This was one one such lucky occurrence. The location is secluded...but known to the locals. The climb to the garden setting leads to a cool interior where the atmosphere is inviting, the staff friendly, the food outstanding and the white wines delicious accompaniments to your oyster appy and lobster main. Highly recommended.More
When you are a tourist you set forth to find a exclusive restaurant, dreaming for a local place with good food! Well, you got it! We set at a table for two, there were several tables with groups of friends. All eating fresh oysters like...us. We saw a gorgeously appealing giant shrimp dish in a table with 5 people and ordered it. Great choice. We saw people leaving and talking to other tables. Good service and best oysters presentation we saw in the island. If you come to Florianópolis and want to skip tourists, try it and let me know!More
Best food experience in Florianopolis. The owners here have a great eye for detail, and it shows in the excellent selection, presentation, and flavors of the food. Simply outstanding products made with an original flair. The grilled fish was high quality. The flavors were exciting,...and really worth remembering! Easily one of the best meals we've had in a long time. The attendants even made the time to give us the historical background of the restaurant, offered us a complimentary beverage, and offered umbrella service to our Uber at the entrance. I recommend Rita Maria's without hesitation.More
Located in a nice house, it offers a seafood menu including the low cost executive lunch. Less than my expectations for it is wide known, but good enough to return someday. Wine list is short, deserves to add better wines. Service is efficient.
