I am not a big eater, I'm not a big foodie but whatever little I eat, I like it to be good and bad food depresses me. Thai Brasil was my best meal in the 10 days I spent in Brazil. The hosts and hostesses spoke English fluently. The menu isn't very extensive but the food portions are generous. I... More

This is my favorite place to eat in Brazil, and definitely in Paraty. Being a vegetarian they always make something special for me. In my green curry I counted 8 different kinds of vegetables! It is always served on a banana leaf, decorated with beautiful flowers. Service is implacable . Always A real pleasure.

Very very beautiful restaurant! I wish my house/garden looked like that. The food was good and the cocktails are heavy ;) If you just want something else then everywhere you have Esten, go here.

I have been here a few times now, the food is really delicious, the meals full of flavour and a great selection of cocktails. The food menu is relatively simple with about 12 mains to choose from which is great, because even with such a narrow selection it is still really difficult to choose - everything looks and is delicious!...

We have been there several times already and everytime the food is very good and so is the service. We usually order something with fish or seafood and we can really recommend this place. They also have a very nice space outside where you can eat. The decoration is also worth seeing.

The restaurant has a great atmosphere with a lovely decoration, very kitsch with a Brazilian accent. Luckily my group managed to get a table fast, but since we were during FLIP, the waiting time was pretty long. There were few options on the menu, but they all looked tasty. I’ve ordered the grilled squid which had a good size and... More

The ambience is simple (in a positive way!) and agreeable, full of colors and joy! The tables, chairs, and walls were all painted by the owner, a German lady that has elected Paraty as her home! She is the chef of the restaurant and the person who mixes the Thai flavor with the exotic Brazilian fruits and spices. The result... More

On a Monday evening at 8.30pm I went to this restaurant on my own. There was only 2 other guests so I just sat down at one of the 4 person tables. When the waitress came over she said I couldn't sit here as it was for 4 people. When I questioned whether it was likely the other 20 or... More

It's a very easy going place, with a young atmosphere and excellent cuisine. They grow their own spices, such as the Thai basil. A must in Paraty.
