If you're visiting Florianopolis you must go to Bistro Santa Marta. The place is cosy, beautiful and the food is absolutely fantastic! We had a wonderful time there. Oh! They also have a nice variety of wines, which makes the place even more fabulous!

I have been going to Bistro Santa Marta since it opened a little more than a year ago, and wanted to wait to do this review, I am always frustrated with restaurants around here as they are great when open and as they get attentions and become known they start to drop on quality,on the service and when we less expect it is closed , I am extremely glad to be able to say that my experience with Bistro Santa Marta is different from so many restaurants in Florianopolis and specially in Lagoa, this one is always getting better. I can see the love and attention the owners Milena and Branco bring to it and the warmth they receive each and every client they receive. It is a real Bistro, in the sense that the owners run it and are involved and all aspects of making it happen! Barbara the chef prepares the dishes individually and everything is prepared carefully. The dishes are perfectly flavored and I highly recommend the octopus ( Polvo da Magia) cooked to perfection crispy on the outside and super tender on the inside, not a easy task to accomplished by just any one! The ambience is elegant , sophisticated but not pretentious. It brings comfort and simplicity. Perfect to go in two, by yourself or with a group of friends it is warm, small and cozy. I highly recommend to call first and make reservation as they only have around 8-10 tables and it is always full. A place you don’t want to wait on a line because who gets in will likely stay all night long!
