Out of 3 nights in Paraty 2 we spent at the Castellet!Yves, the owner from Marseille, was wonderful, and his variation of the french tradition dish crepe, refreshing.

We visited after supper and squeezed into the tiny but charming room after being warmly greeted. We had a variety of sweet crepes and coffee and enjoyed the visit. We watched others have huge savoury crepes and one couple a huge fish. They do offer so e french stalwarts like terrine and steak au poivre. Worth asking them not to... More

While there are a lot of things to commend Le Castallet (nice bread and home-flavored olive oil, and an interesting selection of crepe fillings), we found that the food itself was overly - and unnecessarily - rich. This was somewhat disappointing, but the major let down of the evening was ordering a glass of wine (after a bottle of a... More

Le Castellet was the dinner highlight of our honeymoon to Paraty and Rio. The place is so romantic - only about 10 tables, and feels just like Paris. The food is spectacular and shockingly affordable compared to most other restaurants in Paraty... would have happily paid twice as much for our crepes and bottle of wine. The owner was very... More

Was disappointed with our visit to Castallet but I think this may have been down to bad timing on our part. We hadn't booked and we arrived just after a large group had also just made an unplanned visit. The interior of the restaurant was lovely but it's very small and quickly became cramped after everyone moved inside when it... More

The experience at Le Castellet is kind of curious. The restaurant is opened only after 17:30, when the fresh bread, made in accordance with the french tradition (boulangerie artisanal) is ready. The decoration is perfect to create an ambience of a french bistro... The service was very carefull, and our waiter had good knowledge about the menu and the wine... More

Great little restaurant with a lovely atmosphere and lovely staff. First you get to try the home made bread and oils then you choose your food from the boards on the wall. I had brie crepes and my husband had the risotto. Both were gorgeous. We then had the creme brulee which was divine! With complimentary bread and cointreau this... More

Visited with my wife and had a fantastic meal! The owner and chef provided fantastic service explaining the menu in Portuguese / French. Food was delicious. House made Artisan breads with infused olive oils was a great start. Crepes were amazing!
