We were recommended this restaurant which turned out to be one of the best we visited in Brazil. Menu choice was great as was wine list. Every menu choice we had between the four of us was A1. Waiter was friendly and professional. Restaurant is beautifully designed in a central old quarter location. Wonderful evening in our first visit to... More

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.

We went 2 times just to tell you that we liked it. Very refined and tasty dishes. Over 2 days, my wife had the chicken and the baked cod. I had the octopus - one of the best in my life and I am a connoisseur- and a vegetarian plate with local heart of palms , manioc and bananas in... More

Very nice restaurant, an exquisite fusion of flavors, careful service, comfortable, good caipirinha, spirits and wines but very expensive.

Arrived late at night in Paraty and went to the first restaurant we could find. What luck that we landed at Banana de Terra! We shared a fabulous bottle of Chilean chardonnay while feasting on grilled fish on a bed of Brazilian "potato", an arugula and mountain greens salad, and ceviche. The decor is lovely and I highly recommend!

The restaurant is very well located and decorated. The food was top notch and the service was way above average. We all had different dishes and they were all amazing. The appetizers they served were also a highlight. To top it all off, we had this local beer called Caboré, which made everything extra charming and delicious.

We didn't eat here at the menu was really expensive. I have posted pictures of it so you can see - far over priced for us. I'm sure the food is good but wanted to give others warning before booking
