Delicious crepes in the gorgeous old town

We went to Farandole for after dinner crepes and sat out on the pavement in the heart of the old town. The french owner was very friendly, and the crepes themselves were perfect - light and delicious and just the way they should be. I had the simple lemon and sugar 'La Citronelle' and my friend had... read more

We went here during the FLiP festival, Paraty was packed and we wanted a little snack. This place is cute and in historic downtown, eating crepes in this setting on the old cobblestones is fun . The crepes were okay, Like good but not something I would be craving to go back for . The waitress was temporary but really... More

More than a restaurant, Farandole is the good place to start a trip in Paraty. First because you can try local kind of tasty crepe - funny for european travelers - and also the best of french crêpe receipes. Second point : the owners know the best spots and contacts so you can have the best trip in this area.... More

Tried this place due to the great reviews on TA and it was also in the lonely planet guide. It did not disappoint. English menus are available and two of the staff members (seem to be the managers or owners) spoke great english. We went there twice over our stay in Paraty- once for sweet crepes and next for savoury... More

We decided go visit this gorgeous little French crepe spot after a lonely planet recommendation. We were not disappointed it was heavenly and divine. I am ashamed to admit we visited this gorgeous place three times in three days!! The stand out for me was the savoury chicken and cream cheese crepe, absolutely beautifully cooked and extremely filling! For dessert... More

We spent a great time in this very nice place. Give it a try! The chocolate and banana was the one we tried, but planning come back. They also have very interesting proposals with cheease and meat.

We went with our big family. They were able to attend to each kids wants. Some had just ice cream. Some just with jam. I enjoyed the savory Brie crepes, my husband loved the apple crepe. The owners were friendly and spoke English.

I wish I had found this place earlier while in Paraty. It was delicious! My friend even put in a complicated order and it came out perfectly. The crepes are huge and definitely fill you up. The owner is very nice. She speaks English, which was a plus for us. Our waiter seemed to be very new, but also very... More
