Very nice restaurant with great views of the ocean. Famous for its octopus, but I'd also recommend the lime crusted fish. Just be aware of busy hours, place fills up quickly on weekends and service can get bad with long waits.

A very beautiful place in front of the sea. Excelent treatment and food. I recommend the "Polvo Rosso", in the menu, which is an awesome octopus plate. Good to visit in a couple or in group. 5 stars!

Outstanding service and food. The main entree, octopus, is the best I've ever had in a while. The place is very casual and it sits in front of the water. Beautiful views. I definitely recommend this place for the avid eaters of octopus. Excelente polvo e creio que foi o melhor polvo que ja comi. O lugar e casual e... More

I come back at the restaurant that auto proclamed the KING OF OCTOPUS. We went two weekends ago, party of 8. This time we went for the famous octopus. We order the crispy and the "assado". The crispy in fact was like pop corn srimp with a lot of balsamic vinager. Very bad. The assado was ok, nothing special. We... More

Another great place to go in St Antonio de Lisboa to enjoy sea food with family, friend or as a couple. A bit more "posh" than other places, its a great venue to enjoy the sunset and to try there special Pulpo dish, we will be back.

For many years experience dining in Florianópolis I am quite pleased to have tried for the first time the dish that made this restaurant famous. The octopus served in Rosso is unanimously a distinctive dish. The location and restaurant setting with amazing views makes it a complete and heavenly dining experience.

I hit on Rosso by chance and it must have been my lucky day. The food is absolutely wonderful, faultless. In a city that is brimming with seafood options, Rosso definitely is a notch up. I have been to many restaurants that claim to offer a perfect eating experience just to be disappointed. Not at Rosso. I had the prawn... More

Last friday NOV 28th, I went to this restaurant with a couple of local friends. The place is overall the best to explore, with the piers, narrows streets, and the atmosphere is peaceful. The view of sunset is marvelous. And than, get a table by the window, for the best dinner I ever had in FLN. Service the best, and... More
