We were surprised to see this place almost empty on a Friday night. We had the shrimp salad made with a passion fruit vinegrette then the fish and rice dish, and both were delicious. They also had a solo musician playing that night. As with other places we'd been, they charge extra for the live music on your tab though.

We heard that this was a restaurant to not miss while in Paraty. We were rather disappointed as all the dishes we ordered looked and tasted the same. I had chicken which was dry and overcooked. I would not return.

We looked forward to a good meal at this quite highranked restaurant. It started good, we got a small table at the bar for drinks, until our main table was ready. We ordered drinks, but they only delivered a few of them. After two reminders and another 15 min or so we finally all got drinks in the heat. Then,... More

Food is delicious and the space is very comfy. We also had live saxophone playing MPB. But the price range in TripAdvisor is very wrong. We spent 90 reais each on appetizer, main course and two beers.

This restaurant was recommended by our innkeeper and the shrimp dishes we had were great. Our waitress spoke English and explained the various items on the menu for us as well as the specials of the day. The restaurant was quiet and we enjoyed a relaxing meal at Casa do Fogo. The best part was the end of the meal-... More

We follow the recommendations and had dinner there. The food was amazing, the service very good and we absolutely loved the live music. The mango salad with passion fruit dressing is a MUST have!!!

Based upon reviews here and looking at the menu, we picked that place for dinner. Ordered specialties of the house. Looked good on the menu with creative ideas and combinations that should have been able to bring together the better of Brazil. What a deception. Fish not terribly fresh, everything overcooked. These people should learn to cook. Although there is... More

We went to this restaurant following the recommendations on Tripadvisor and Lonely Planet but were sorely disappointed. The service was incredibly slow (1.5 hours to get our food despite restaurant being next to empty) and when the food did arrive it was underwhelming and cold (the poorest meal I have had at this price in Brazil). Despite being a flambe... More

Best meal we had in brazil. Delicious mango salad appetizer with passion fruit dressing. Amazing main course of chicken in coconut sauce loaded with fresh veggies. Fabulous bananas flambeed in caramel and cinnamon ice cream for dessert. Wish it existed in Toronto. Soooo good.
