Good food, fair price, good location

Everywhere you ask, people will recommend you this restaurant. And there I went! Asked for a sea food board (as they call it), and was not disappointed. We ate it in 4 people (2 who eat few, 2 who eat well), and it was a fair amount, every one got their share and was enough to satisfy. The fresh... read more

This is a basic restaurant, but charges as if it were superior. There are better options near by, look for them. Simple tables, all together, not a beautiful place. The food was ok, not delicious, but not bad as well. It serves Brazilian food. There is NO desert, NO coffee and NO WiFi !

We arrived at 8pm, and immediately orded food and drinks. Soft drinks and waters was complicate to come, Rice,steak and strogonoff was too late and I was leaving the place. Only 2 men woarking, they closed the entrance the new clients. There are more interesting and local food to experiment. Never come back.

We went here based on a coworker's recommendation. He told us he ate there every night while in Paraty. Now we know why. This place is very unassuming and can be easily overlooked. It's across from Paraty 33. The portions here are huge! My wife and I shared a shrimp omelette, with rice and french fries. Our meal only cost... More

I've been there several times (other trips) and I always enjoy their food (and caipirinha). You need to be very hungry to eat all the food thy put on the table. Good location, in the old part of the town, is also a something that I appreciate.

We ate here as a group of 16 and it wasn't the best place we ate in Paraty by far. The service was good considering the size of our group but the food was pretty poor. The vegetarian selection consisted of a cheese omelette which was OK as far as omelettes go but nothing special. My friends chose a variety... More

The food is always delicious! The quantity is plenty enough. It is probably one of the best food in Paraty.

I went to this restaurant after a recommendation from the manager at pousada do sandi just around the corner, which was where I was staying. The restaurant is simply decorated. The choice of seafood is numerous but it is all served in a simple way, without any gimmicks, letting the products themselves tell the story. I would say that the... More
