The food we had here was excellent and was the best meal I had in paraty. I had the scallop dish and my friend had a vegetarian dish. I will say that the item they brought out before the meal was great, but we didn't realize until the bill that it wasn't complementary - so watch out for that. But... More

Looking at the menu you might think it is overprice. But after you eat you realize it was worth every penny. From the service, knowledgable staff, tasty food with exotic flavors - to the cold beer! Priceless! We had shrimp with Porto wine sauce, seafood with coconut/ginger sauce and the traditional house fish with banana. All to die for. Expensive,... More

We loved it from the start. The restaurant is really cosy and the kitchen deliver what they wrote in the ambitious menu´. Perfect cooking technique together with fresh local food are the signature of this tradional/modern restaurant. Wide list of wines and affordable. The service is top notch discrete, efficient, and quick, just impeccable. A memorable dinner/evening

Had a wonderful meal here while visiting the lovely town of Paraty. The various seafood dishes my family and I sampled were extremely well prepared-- terrific twists on Brazilian flavored. And what a nice setting. Not cheap but well worth it.

This is a nicely decorated restaurant in the historic center of Paraty. From the beginning our waitress was far from courteous and actually looked kind of angry. By the end of our dinner the restaurant got really crowded and became obvious that they were short staffed. Our bill took 20 minutes to arrive! The food was great but for the... More

I've been to this restaurant twice, over the years. It is never a disappointment. The food is very good and it is situated at the historical part of the city. It is worth visiting.

This is the best restaurant we have found in Paraty. Service is top-notch and the food is amazing. They also have one night per week with a special locally sourced prix fixe menu, which was stellar. It is definitely more expensive than other restaurants in Paraty, but it's well worth it.
