My husband and I stayed at a great B&B near the restaurant and decided to go because we were told the food was just to die for. And that was right. We not only got to sit and enjoy the sounds of the ocean, along with a great view of the moon, we had a scrumptious meal. It was so... More

The husband & I visited Paraty for an anniversary getaway, and I have to say our 2 visits to this restaurant were both perfect! Night one we enjoyed a perfectly done steak with all the usual Brazilian fixin's.... Rice, Farofa, fries, a myriad of sauces... And a beautiful seafood pasta. The perfectly cooked pasta was accompanied with a light butter... More

To give you the setting, La Luna is right on the beach, with a very cozy and relaxed atmosphere. The staff is super friendly, the music is good and relaxing. And now the food... just the best we had!!! We spent two nights in Paraty and had dinner both time there. We ordered grilled fish the first night, which comes... More

We had a really good dinner at La Luna where you can get a free caprianha if you mention that the restaurant has been recommended by your pousada. Francesco, the argentine owner/chef and his staff are friendly and the steaks we had were superb. Overall, good value, great location and a very pleasant evening.

Francesco's natural grilled fish and vegetables were the best we've ever had. Included: fish, zucchini, two types of potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes - all grilled to perfection. The setting was beautiful and the service couldn't have been better. We came back for a second night - ordered the same thing and Francesco offered extras, including a complementary after dinner cordial. We'd... More

We stayed in Paraty for 6 nights and ate at la Luna twice. The food was wonderful as was the atmosphere, one the beach and candle lit with relaxing music. we had steak and the shrimp as a starter loved the flavours and spices they used. I wish I could eat there every night.

My husband and I had a great dinner here. Try the steak or the grilled fish with shrimp sauce. The portions were big but because it was so good, we cleaned our plates. They also have some good wine options. The service was good and the location right on the beach could not be beat!
