Enjoyed a wonderful dinner on a slow night in Paraty. The food was creative and the service was wonderful. Even though my Portuguese was very limited, our server was very patient and helpful and made us feel very welcome. All dishes were well conceived but our two soups, potato based as amuse bouche, and seafood as an appetizer were both... More

I want to congratulate the staff, everyone was truly attentive and professional. The food, which has a strong regional touch, was quite good and creative - all expertly prepared by chefs Ana Bueno e Vicente... More

Food was so delicious! And the menu really is creative, you won't eat anywhere else like it! It is pricey but oh so worth it if you want to splurge! You won't regret it (well we didn't)

This is a nice restaurant in the historic center of Paraty. The meal was delicious and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere and good service. We had the octopus and it was delicious. The dishes were served with nice presentation. We would go back again. One of the better restaurants in Paraty.
