As we walked through the gorgeous streets of Paraty (not for the first, or last time), we spotted this charming little restaurant, perfectly lit and exuding smooth jazzy sounds. As we’ve been to most of the restaurants in town, we ventured in, the atmosphere was as promised, warm, welcoming and worthwhile, or was it? our mistake was to order, the... More

The food and service waqs excellent too. We enjoyed it so much, we went back the following night. This time there was... More

The overall experience was very poor. We were attracted by the lovely setting and an interesting menu. Unfortunately the food was poor, extremely poor given the price of the food. We ordered the beef carpaccio starter. When it arrived it had been cooled to such a low temperature that it was frozen in the middle. When we queried this with... More

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
