Gorgeous and unmissable restaurant in Paraty. From the decor to the food, everything is impeccable. I wish i knew the waiter's name who graced our table with charm and knowledge. The menu, full of local dishes and ingredients us both well thought and superbly executed. One of my favourite restaurants in the world.

This restaurant seems to be well known therefor we had to wait a couple of minutes until we got seated because the place was to crowded. So if you wanna avoid that i would recommend you to reserve a table before you go. The food and the staff is excellent! As a result the price is relative high (80 reals... More

went here twice. A set menu for a group was good but wow ordering a la carte was amazing. the banana and cheese ravioli actually outshone the duck. Nice wines too.

We come here since 20 years or so and it has always been very good. Unfortunately tonight chef Ana was not there and the vegetarian curry was way below standard. The taste was flat and the rice and chickpeas undercooked. The vegetarian moqueca last time was much better.

Excellent food & extremely nice staff. Do not worry if bananas is not your thing, it's just a name :) I recommend this to anyone. Open from 19 normally.

Had this restaurant recommended to us by our hotel (the excellent and brilliantly located Pousada Porto Imperial) and were not disappointed! The food was up to any London restaurant standard and the service (from Gabriella) was attentive and helpful (with excellent translations). We were served a small 'taster' on the house before our starters which were delicious. Really hard to... More

The service was sensational, as was the food and great wine selection. My wife had the fillet mignon, it was the best she has ever had, I had the lamb loin which was up there with the best. Really nice decor, modern but holding onto the old in a nice mix. This is a definite if you are in Paraty... More

A friend recommended this restaurant and I'm so glad she did! Everything I ate was fabulous ... and now it's the only place I will ever want to eat in Paraty! I'm not sure you can go wrong on this menu, but I had the ceviche starter, which was an amazing blend of flavors, and then the fish with bananas... More
