We spoke to Nivaldo today and he said that the restaurant ia closed in Ingleses. Probably will re-open in March at another place (Jurere).

The view from our table was great - almost touching the ocean.. The beer selection is good and the staff is friendly. The starter (pastel de garoupa) was delicious, and after adding some local spicy sauce and lemon the main dish (arroz cremoso com garoupa) was good too. The price is a little bit too much for what is offered...... More

The place is beautiful, right at the beach... You feel very close to nature! The food is exquisite! Chef Niva is always at the restaurant, he fishes by himself everyday and serves at the restaurant. Means that is the most fresh possible! Octopus, squid, urchin, fish... Any choice is a good one!

Very nice and excellent seafood restaurant on the beach at the Praia dos Ingleses. It is worthy to see the sunset there and have a nice dinner.

My wife and I chose the menu confiance. The plates were delightedly prepared. The staff is kind and the walk to get there was fine. If I may add 2 suggestions they would be: 1. Do your own bread. The one served doesn't match the quality of the food. It's bad. 2. More options to drink. Some local beers would... More

We arrived at this idyllic restaurant in the midst of a spectacular thunderstorm, having been transported over the sand-dunes by the sous chef in a four wheel drive jeep. As the lightning flashed dramatically, our friendly host mixed delicious caipirinhas made with lemons and two varieties of Brazilian lime. The food was superlative, by far the best of our many...

This barraca de praia is genuinely a well hidden gem, even the locals shrugged their shoulders, find it via the dunes, or the beach. The dunes were too much of an adventure without a 4x4… It was off-season and lateish in the afternoon, we were lucky with a table being free. Go with their tasting menu – a series of... More

This unique restaurant deserves its first place on the ranking list of restaurants in Florianopolis! This is due to the food, service and location. They specialize in seafood. One delicious dish after another was brought to the table. You can safely leave it to the chef to decide dishes! Attach images from some of the dishes. The price level was... More

The Corner of Burnishers and Beach Restaurant and Bar located on the right side of Ingleses Beach. The kitchen and commanded by "chef" Nivaldo Souza. Nivaldo that when not in the kitchen, supplies the house with fish, lobsters, grouper and other seafood caught using underwater fishing. The environment is very simple, with a fantastic view of that beach. The site is equipped with aquarium and nursery where are kept seafood alive until the time of preparation. It is worth checking! Remembering that until 20/11 work from Friday to Saturday for lunch, subject to the other days of the week and dinner. With new schedule from 20/11 where the house goes to work every day. Take your questions by phone.
