Perfect pizza

Very nice food and location. Live music almost every busy night. Could be a bit crowded and that makes the service a bit slow but it's a sure shot.

Excellent food, great service, live entertainment. Dessert was especially good, a crème broulet. Performing was Maria Marha, from São Paulo but now residing in Paraty, well worth the small cover charge.

This place was very expensive and the portions were very small/tasteless. We went for lunch and whilst the atmosphere was nice with live music playing we realised you pay for this when the bill arrived! We much preferred the beach bars and other restaurants in the town, as this place is very touristy and overrated.

The prices are overrated and the place is decadent. It's unbelievable that a restaurant in Paraty does not offer air conditioning. The restaurant was hot like hell and there were only few fan ceilings. The place smells old. The food is ok but very expensive. The service was mediocre, the waiter was more concerned with the end of his working... More

My friend and I had dinner here in December and the service was impeccable. The entire waitstaff was very attentive and quick to provide recommendations. The music was a great touch, there is a cover charge built into your menu however, which is not obviously pointed out in the menu, so that was the one downside. The portions are huge,... More

Nice decor, ambiance but no a/c and it was a very hot day. Our server was attentive but the food took forever to prepare. When it finally arrived we were sorely disappointed. My scalloped filet mignon was tough and flavorless. Definitely low grade meat. Since they use cheap meat the portion could have been more generous, it was less than... More

The service was appalling, it is very overpriced. The whole of our group of 7 thought the same. The steak was one of the worst I've ever had, tasteless and it almost needed a chainsaw to cut it
