We loved the look of this restaurant and initial impressions were good. A charming man who spoke English, a lovely helpful waiter but the primary responsibility of a restaurant is to serve good food and this did not. Octopus was chewy, squid was ok, crab starter only average. Food was luke warm, beans to accompany rice came late, sauté potatoes... More

I absolutely loved the fish we ordered! It was grilled, covered in with brazil nuts and topped with capers. It had such amazing flavor. Loved it!!! We also got shrimp in a catupiry sauce on top of mashed potatoes. The shrimp were quite large, but it was just way too much catupiry cheese for me. If you like it, then... More

I had some local friends telling me how wonderful this place was. So much so that my expectations were kind of high. If you chance to get a table in the varanda, you'll have a lovely view, overlooking the river. Otherwise, the indoors part of the restaurant is pretty plain. The staff was friendly and service was ok. Food was... More

Normal food. Nothing special. We had a typical fish dish that was ok. The place has a nice view of the river and the service is good. Just a little disappointed by the taste of the food.

This place was actually recommended by our hotel so we didn't think twice and walked right in. Big mistake ... a bit more search would have led us to anywhere but here .... they only mostly had dishes for two so if you are with someone you have the pain of finding something you both want. Having found something we... More

Went with some friends and were able to get a table unlike anywhere else in Paraty on Easter Friday night, which should have told us something. The food was moderate, wine was poor, but service was terrible; staff just did not know what they were doing. This was despite the owner being there, but obviously he did not care even... More

A day of sun after many of rain so attracted by the verandah by the river/canal and bridge and the local people enjoying lunch. The menu has English translation. We like and so went for the expensive lobster (Rs130). We should have guessed from the price, even though it was described as "individual" (perhaps meaning a whole one but we... More

We ate outside on the water here for lunch, which was very peaceful. The service was good, but there was no one who really spoke English. We somehow made it work with lots of hand movements and pointing. A lot of their dishes are for 2 people, so be sure to check that out before you order. I shared a... More

Although I did not personally have the food, it certainly smelled delicious. I had a couple of drinks here with a couple of friends and the atmosphere and view were perfect. The drinks topped it all off! The service was excellent and friendly. Definitely recommended! Best of all, this restaurant uses sustainable practices. You can also find this restaurant and... More
