This café has maybe got too many good reviews. The food was average or below, the service without any charme, the atmosphère loud, busy... Definitely not a place to go.

Very good for a complete dining experience - 3 to 5 courses nicely presented and accompanied by good live music. The owner is always there and attentive.

In an unknown city you rely on recommendations and thought I would try this. Great setting, lovely restaurant and good live music but poor service and the food was not that great

Bread is prepared in the pizza over. Service is good. Food delicious. The live music could be a little less noisy. Delicious food. Incredible wine cellar for a town like Paraty.

Nice and beautiful place, the food was amazing! We went there twice in the same trip to try different dishes. The desserts are also delicious.

We just arrived in Paraty today and had a wonderful lunch of seafood broth with a basket of rolls and a side platter of pates, seafood based of course. It was delicious . With a soft drink it cost $104.40 Real or $ Aud 48.33. Great value with great service and any confusion when ordering is remedied with sign language.

While more expensive than we would normally do ($200R for 1/2 bottle of wine, two glasses of wine, water, two entrees) we enjoyed the place and the food was good. My wife had the seafood salad, listed just as a salad but plenty of food for dinner. I had the duck served two ways, it was delicious.

Nice restaurant near the square. Was busy when we popped in for lunch. Our waiter was a lovely chap who spoke english but the food was generally poor and overpriced. Had chicken and pasta with pesto. The pesto was basically just green oil with no taste and made the pasta really greasy. The chicken did taste nice but the portion... More

Very expensive for what you get here considering the alternatives about. Reasonable moqueca for two with rice but heavily tomato based and not worth the 140 reais. Very dark, service ok, nice live music but save some cash and go somewhere cheaper for better food.
