Favourite restaurants in Floripa?
(LUNCH) The sea food restaurant Recanto dos Brunidores is the perfect choice for lunch time. It's on the beach, the water will be like 20 meters from you, the food is great and the view is the best possible view you can find on the Island. When you get in Floripa, check the weather forecast to make a reservation on that date with most chances of a beautiful sunny day. Nice weather is very important! (DINNER) Assuming you're visiting Floripa during summer looking for fun with your friend and the local crowd my favorite place for dinner + warm-up is the Second Floor in Jurerê.
My favorite dish is a starter at Simple on The Beach restaurant in Jurerê. Everything else there is very good after you have the ceviche.
Favourite hotels in Floripa?
iL Campanario is the best option during summer.
My hidden pleasure in Floripa?
Most of tourist who comes to Floripa spend all the time in Jurerê, whice is nice because of the parties but is not even close one of the best locations of Floripa when it comes to natural beaties, sports, trips, etc....
You must visit Lagoa da Conceição (Conceição Lake) and take and fishman's boat to get to one of the 17 restaurants of Costa da Lagoa for a sea food parade by the lake. You should also visit the south of the Island. Places like Praia do Matadeiro, Pântano do Sul e Ribeirão da Ilha and once there pic one of the following options for lunch: Bar do Arantes or Ostradamus.
