This is probably one of the more formal eateries in Paraty and offers a different twist on the locale cuisine. It has a great wine list and beautiful atmosphere.

The food is surprisilly good and the waiters are very nice. The restaurant is a membership of Prato da Boa Lembrança and if you order the dish selected you'll take a hand painted plate as a gift. They have good wines, too. It's a good idea having reservation in advance.

Somewhat expensive, for Paraty's average, but a very nice staff, and good food and wine. Also good environment.

We walked the streets at lunchtime today and this was the only restaurant that had any people in it so of course this is the one we went to eat at. Great value for money for such good quality food. We had shrimps and fish dishes which were cooked to perfection. Contemporary dining and good service.

If Michelin rated restaurants in Brazil, this one would definitely qualify for a star. The dishes creatively combine local/regional ingredients and are carefully prepared, e.g. smoked cheese and bacon with banana (as a starter) or shrimp with black beans and cachaca (a main course). From the amuse geule onwards you get a sense of someone who is sophisticated in a... More

The food is absolutely impeccable. I could list every dish we tried and loved but I recommend to sit and try it for yourselves! The service is very good but not outstanding for Paraty standards. The decor and ambience is perfection. A must! It is a mandatory stop when in Paraty.

Liked the traditional ambience, and the comfort in dealing with those of us who can't speak portugese. Creative menu, good way to experience local cuisine .
