the restaurant, although simple and not at all pretentious, is a local pearl. the staff, the owner , everybody seems to be there to please you. and the food, ahh, the food: seafood like few in the whole world.

The food is fantastic,the wait staff is very efficient and friendly. You can't beat the view of Florianopolis across the bay at night. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We visited for lunch and had the Especial Estrela doMar which comprised fried prawns in batter, fish cakes, steamed prawns, grilled fish and fried fish, accompanied by rice, chips, salad and prawn sauce, all of which was delicious. The restaurant is airy and decorated with a fishing theme. It has views across a quiet road to the sea and the city beyond. It is owned by one of Florianopolis' real characters, Ze, after whom it is named. He can usually be found sitting in the small shop by the entrance and it is worth stopping to speak to him, albeit that you need to speak Portuguese ! We would definitely go back.

Food is mostly traditional fried seafood, but it is tasty . It is always full on weekends so plan ahead. I could not figure out the strong chemical smell inside. Cleaning chemics? It is strong enough to put you off.
