We've stayed for 2 nights and also had dinner both nights - no regrets! It's perfectly located only a couple of minutes from the main road close to Paraty but feels like deep in the jungle. We went to the nearby beaches during the day and came back just in time before the sauna got heated up followed by a... More

I was really impressed. A place so dislocated, about 4km from the main road, but beatifull. Excelent atmosfere, perfect Ceviche (with fruits) and really nice Sea food. The chef and his wife where both really nice.

I ate with my wife here in 2011, and enjoyed it immensely, and chose to return with my wife and parents visiting from the UK in September 2012. The hosts, Olivier and his wife Valerie are warm and welcoming, and I envy their lifestyle - they clearly love the place, and take great pride in their cuisine and at being... More

Far up into the forest you find this divine place. You are welcome to take a dip in the infinity pool, waterfall and all this before you taste delicious food and drink fine wine. If I could go every week I would.

This place is located in the heart of the mountains, right between a dozen of beautiful ware falls, among birds and hundreds of trees. It's owner, a French chef that lived in Rio some years really knows the feeling and is always trying to make things wonderful for you in that relaxing wild "neo-hippie-French-Brazilian place.

I have been to the restaurant twice and both times the experience was great. The food is great, served in banana leafs that grow in the trees of the restaurant, owners are very nice. It is worth swimming in the waterfalls after lunch.

We had high expectations of this restaurant considering other reviews. We think the owner is better at image building than at cooking and dealing with customers. The location of the restaurant is fantastic: in the middle of the rainforest. We found the service to be poor. When we ordered wine no effort was taken to pour it into the glass.... More

The place have a beautiful view, even in a cloudy day it's worth the visit. It's very relaxing and the food is amazing. If you go there on a sunday, you will try the great tarte tatin, it's really delicious! Olivier and his wife(owners) are very kind and friendly, you will feel at home.
