Great service, superb food and not just seafood (although I thoroughly recommend the Spaghetti with Clams). Try this Restaurant you will not be disappointed!

Both the main course fish entree (served family style) and my daughters fries tasted of old fishy oil. The food was unappetizing and not even close to what one would expect after dropping RS$265 (US$133) for two adults and a 5 year old.

My wife recalls Restinga being much better in the past, so maybe it was just a bad first experience for me. The beers were cold and the view spectacular, but even that's not enough to overcome an overpriced and unappetizing meal. I doubt we will waste our time here when we're back in Floripa this Spring.

Restinga is a local favorite with locals and tourists too....It is located on the water in a small, quaint Portuguese village...It is colorfully decorated with marine items and local carnaval decorations. It is known for shrimp and oysters and squid in all forms...It is very popular and almost always full of happy eaters.

I actually really like this place for a very cold beer, local cachaça and appetizers like fried fish samplers, shrimp and the view. The entrees, however, are nothing special and won´t wow you, it is ok seafod. Season gets overcrowded and service getspoor, off season is very pleasant.

Or any kind of fish. the restaurant offer a beautiful view , great service and a unique decor. It is a fun place, uncomplicated with great food and the also have an extensive list of wines (did not taste).
