Beautifully decorated restaurant in the centre of Paraty. We had the grilled crab starter which was delicious and the fish (robalo/snook) Carmen Miranda! With that name I had to - lovely white fish with mango a sweet and sour taste, with leek risotto. Great local Paraty wheat beer (Cabore). A really wonderful, atmospheric restaurant with great service. Live piano music... More

Great atmosphere, wonderful piano music, good service BUT when the most important ingredient - FOOD was sorely lacking....we had lobster - pricey and opted to change the risotto for pasta - mistake. We were disappointed with pasta - simple spaghetti w/ cherry tomatoes - bland and tasteless - totally disappointing for price....and still can't figure out why a chef that... More

We ate here tonight (6/8/14). It was that good I had to write a review straight away. The lady who served us was fantastic and knowledgeable, the food delicious and different and the music gave it a great vibe. We ate the starter platter followed by the blue cheese and banana pasta ( wow! ), chateubriand with beautiful smokey mash... More

The night we ate there was a lovely wind player. Food and wine was good, if a little pricey. They also tried to over charge us which was disappointing.

Restaurente Porto can be found in a side alley in the lovely Paraty town. The setting is serene and immediately relaxes you. The menu itself is so friendly- they explain how long the food would take, apologize in advance if something may not be on the menu and explain that paying for the live music is optional. It is very... More

The food was good. We had the chateaubriand, the mixed seafood pasta with white wine sauce and the green pasta with shrimp. The beef was outstanding especially the sauce. The pasta in each of the other dishes was really good but the sauces lacked taste. We also ordered the palm salad and the green salad with carmelized onions. Both were... More

We've been to Paraty, Brazil a few times now and have always passed Restaurante Porto as it looks charming and boasts all of its wonderful reviews accolades from articles and magazines that have featured them. It's staff is nice and welcoming, good atmosphere and service fair but the most important feature, Porto's food was severely lacking for the price and... More

My wife and I took our daughter (4 years old) here on Friday night and the service and food was wonderful. One of the waiters spoke English, helped us with questions we had, and even served us a very nice wine that was not on the wine list. It paired well with our seafood. They do not have a kids... More

Whenever I read any review describing a restaurant as a intimate, fine-dining place… we hesitate going there as we have two small children (age 2 and 6). But since we were recommended for their fresh fish, we wanted to try. We went there on Monday early evening when the restaurant had only another family (which is a perfect timing for... More

And thought I'd treat myself. I liked the look of Porto, small, intimate, nicely appointed. had a more European feel. It was early by Brazilian standards, but I was one tired, hungry tourist. Upon entering, the place was empty, I exclaimed how tired I was. The waiter said, I will get you a more comfortable chair. His attention for the... More
