Amazing!

The service was a bit slow, but the meal was well worht the wait. Finally some particular dishes, with interesting mix of meats and fruit. Probably my favourite meal out of my entire trip.

The restaurant is quaint. Nice ambience. Seeing the flames of the flambée in the kitchen is fun. The signature dish of prawns and saffron rice with maracuya and coco tasted very bland. Rice was undercooked. The wine was good. The band played two songs and the rest of the time they were on a long break.

This is a wonderful and cute restaurant, with very original food, and nice live brazilian music (a woman singer accompained by a guitar). The service was very kind and friendly, but yes, it is slow. This is certainly not fast food, requires preparation, one should just sit, relax, sip the drink and listen the music while you wait for your... More

It is a pity that the major souvenir that will remain is the time we lost waiting to be served. From the time we ordered our meals to the time we have been served, it was more than 1 hour. It is really too much, especially with young kids that were falling asleep before having their dinner. It is a... More

Friendly service and local cuisine make a good combination at Casa do Fogo. We had entrees that were new to us and we enjoyed every one.

A hidden gem in Paraty with a cosy environment. We followed TripAdvisor comments and went to that restaurant which exceeded our expectations. The waitress provided an excellent service and the food was simply delicious and to add to that, there was a couple playing some music just or us as we came very early. Mains goes from R36 to R75...

I could cry that I probably cannot ever visit this restaurant again – among the best food ever enjoyed, and the warmth of the staff, and special encounter with Jennifer, was so special for me and my niece. My fish on a flambeed vegetable mixture was unbeatable - world class, as was the octopus. Ditto the wines, ditto desserts. Ditto... More

Ate here for dinner last night and it was such a wonderful experience. The restaurant was practically empty but they still had live music which felt like a private performance by the end. The service was EXCELLENT and the food was great as well. We had both of the steak dishes, the fish with veggies and the shrimp in coconut... More

My friend and I went to Casa do Fogo at the end of December after having read about it in various guidebooks. While the menu is very attractive, the service was extremely slow that night as every single table waited probably an hour for food. Once the food came, it was good, but a huge damper after having to wait... More

That was our best culinar experience in Paraty. It was very light and most of the dishes were flambeed with some tropical fruits and other local components. There was some nice music during the meal but not too loudy either. The only bad point of the service is that they try to make you pay as much as possible (they... More
