Magnificent

Throughout the meal, our glasses are constantly topped up, we are always asked if we are satisfied with the meal and the staff were attentive without being overbearing.

When I made my reservation I was asked for my email address and promptly received an email with a practical link to Google Maps, and the strict instructions: do not come early or late. Be punctual.

Not arguing about the sense of a French restaurant practically in the Atlantic forest, this pretend-to-be local is overrated. We did not have a bad dinner, but prices and environment made us laughing when exited. Go eat Brazilian

About a ten minute taxi ride from our base in the old city center we had a wonderful dinner at Voila Bistrot, in a private park-like setting. The caipirinha's that we began with did not have a lot of sugar added like they often do, making it seem more like an adult cocktail rather than just spiked lemonade. The duck... More

This restaurant is up to most of its reviews when it comes to the quality of the dishes. Antipathy, however, is its motto. It is more strict than any restaurant you may have come across in Paris. It's impossible to be comfortable while ordering or sipping some wine. Maybe it's just too pretentious for its own sake.

A little bit of true France in Brazil, this establishment is certainly in the top 3 of all of Paraty. The food is exquisite and is very refined. An experience in itself.

I was in doubt how to classify this restaurant as average or very good, and I finally decided for the last, because of the nice atmosphere, the owners attention and because it is very hard to have high quality and good service in Paraty or in Angra dos Reis as well. In my opinion they made miracles to have such... More

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
