Original Brazilian Cousine, incredible flavors, service and nice ambiance. Order the vegetarian dish, and one of the fish dishes, everything was very fresh and delicious.

The food is very good (not exclente) and creative, the service is excellent, but be prepared to spend USD 150 per person, if yo don't order the more expensive wines. In Sao Paulo you would dine at a world-class restaurant for this price. In general restaurants in Paraty are over-priced

I have been to this restaurant during a holiday in Brazil. The restaurant is located in a nice street in the distincive inner city of Paraty. Food was creative, well prepared and well presented (the chef of this restaurant is apparently quite famous in Brazil). Service was impeccable. Very special caipirinas. Recommended.

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
