Amazing atmosphere and unbeatable cuisine. It's a small hidden place just outside Paraty and, no doubt about it, the best dinner spot around town. The restaurant is charming and cozy and the limited menu comprises tasty options for all foodies. If your into wine, the french ones - either white or red - are all great. I definitely recommend it... More

Dear Fabio, Thanks for your comments. We had a lot of chance to open our gate for you and your girl friend in a day we were closed (smiles). And you come back 2 days after. It was a pleasure for us! We hope to have another opportunity to see you again! Best regards, Adriana & Christophe Legond More

Intimate, rustic bistrot that is part of the poussada. The poussada owner Christophe is the chef, who also took our order himself, and made a special vegetarian risotto for two with truffles and mushrooms that was not on the menu. Freshly homemade ravioli also with truffles and a cream sauce was exquisite, as were shitake mushrooms. Rich desserts and a... More

I'm not one to write reviews, generally, unless the experience is truly exceptional (for better or for worse) but a dinner at Voila Bistro, in Paraty, unfortunately fell into this latter category. The setting is lovely and the place has had a number of good reviews, so myself and a group of friends chose this as a place to have... More

My friends and I went to this restaurant in a charming place full of expectations for a good meal with decent service. What we got was an arrogant, indifferent owner who scoffed at a patron as she fell on the floor from having had too much to drink. Then he proceeded to insult the tastes of members of our group...

There is simply nothing positive to be said about this pathetic excuse for a restaurant, run by the most pompous, arrogant, ill-mannered and singularly untalented Frenchman I have ever seen (I am French-American). In addition to wildly overpriced even by Brazilian standards, the food is bland to the point of utter tastelessness. But given the service, which took hours and... More

Dear J Barchfield, We believe that your review only can be a serious misunderstanding. First because we do not recognize any of the facts reported here. Second, because we had conquered our current position on TripAdvisor (9th best restaurant of the world) just by offering good food, nice ambience and especially the gentle and respectful we treat every customer that...

The owner is a French chef and his wife is a very lovely Brazilian woman. Everything we ate was excellent. I stayed at their guesthouse with my traveling companion who had an accident and wound up in the hospital. The owners were helpful beyond the call of duty as well as extremely kind and caring. I cannot compliment them enough.... More
