Good honest and simple local seafood, with huge portions and of good quality

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... read more

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.

Tried this with a friend who claimed to be hungry and wanted to order more than just a dish. Well, we weren't disappointed, we had a overload of food. The fish was delicious and the fisherman salad had every type of seafood you could possibly wish for. Needless to say we didn't even get close to finishing our portions. Service... More

While you are in Paraty you should try this restaurant. The service is amazing some waiters speaks a good English and Sereno speaks italian as well. They were able to indicate us the best choice of fresh fish daily and what we would have appreciated more as turist. We tried it under Christmas time and were sad they were closed... More

We went to this restaurant with high expectations having read previous reviews. We were not disappointed, it was so good it was the only restaurant we visited more than once during our two week stay in Brazil. The maitre D'hotel was very cheerful, honest and welcoming. It does get busy but the quality and value means it is worth waiting... More

Very good food that was recommended by a taxi driver. Large portions. Very crowded. I worried because lots of people didn't have their food on their tables when we arrived. It didn't take too long. We had chicken and beef. And we were on probably our fifth day of rice and fries. Wait was long for everything but not horrible.... More

In the historic area, so in a great location but you could easily pass it by as other places stand out more. But do try it out. The food is fabulous, especially the local fish (I had Caval which is sort of like Mackerel) it is served with traditional rice, beans and flour. Portions quoted at the price for 2... More

We went here for dinner 1 evening. It is a restaurant where you order 1 dish for 2 people or for 1 person and pay 60% of the price. We have very different tastes so went for 2 separate meals. The food was OK, we had better meals in Paraty but this was by no means bad. The portions were... More

I found the food excellent, as most other reviewers rated. But you should note in the menu that the dishes listed are intended for two. Half portions to serve one are priced at 60%, I believe. That makes the prices extremely attractive. I think maybe some other reviewers failed to notice that, hence rating the portions "enormous". True enough, I... More
