I'm not one to write reviews, generally, unless the experience is truly exceptional (for better or for worse) but a dinner at Voila Bistro, in Paraty, unfortunately fell into this latter category. The setting is lovely and the place has had a number of good reviews, so myself and a group of friends chose this as a place to have a particularly nice dinner to cap a great visit to Paraty.
The dinner was a real let-down: pricey, which I expected, but not of a quality that matched. The food was bland, and the service sub-par. The owner, in particular, was arrogant and rude when we asked questions about the dishes, or requested accomodations.
Bottom line: There are a number of other great restaurants in Paraty, where the quality of the food and the treatment of guests does rise to the price paid. Give these other folks a try.
