Had dinner here one evening. Dark, cavernous, pleasant enough. Some live music later (we were too tired to stay). Big video screen. Seafood pasta was nice enough - big quantity.

Spent an hour waiting, when the waitress told us 30 min wait. Did not get service and left with the entire family. The owner came and started a discussion with me, that made me leave!!!!! Will never go back

The place is pretty, I went twice in a week, mainly for the good atmosphere and the live music. They have two separate menu: the first time they showed us only the restaturant one. We had one fish and one meat dish, both OK. Around us almost everybody was having pizzas. I found out that there is a second, separate,... More

The restaurant was not busy when we ate, maximum 20 people in it, and it's setup to easily handle triple that based on the number of reserved tables, yet, we waited a long time for drinks, in excess of 15 minutes and we only ordered 2 soft drinks, nothing complicated. During our meal we requested further ice, we both finished... More

Our waiter could manage to speak enough English to get our order and take care of us. The filet was stunning, coocked to perfection and juicy. Atmosphere is the best of Paraty. I would highly recommend this place

This restaurant is a typical brazilian restaurant. The food and the place are local so don't expect a michelin star. However service was perfect and the food very good. We had carpaccios and fish it was perfect! A must go in paraty.

I had a great seafood risotto and it was delicious. But if you're in the mood for steak, go somewhere else. My husband had a dish with pasta and steak and although the pasta was great, the meat was "in need of improvement". Good service.

It would be ok if it costs 40% less. The place is nice, good service but the food is too expensive for the quality they're serving. We spend in 2 people R$160,00 for food and drinks, no deserts and no coffee. In that range of cost you would expect a greater food, but it was just ok.
