Had a great night with good food and friends. The sea food special was excellent and the fish very tasty. The restaurant even provided mosquito cream for those wearing shorts as it was an evening meal. Would also recommend the ice cream. Wear long clothes if you get bothered by mosquitoes. Friendly owner from Argentina who speaks good English and... More

It is a quiosque in the beach, but looks like a restaurant. The decor is beautiful, the service is good, they make reservation, the music is good and the food is ... good, just good and not super special to be so expensive. If you are vegetarian, like me, prepare yourself and wallet! There is only one simple vegetarian option... More

I have just eaten here twice over the weekend. The fish was absolutely fresh and delicious. It was called the 'sea to plate' menu and it really was. I had the grilled fish fillet that was the catch of the day both times and I could not fault a thing with the meal. Their Caipirinha's were very good too.

Had 2 meals here. Food excellent with plenty of choice. Located right on the beach, beautiful views and excellent atmosphere at night. Popular with locals also. Set dinner menu was brilliant value for money though wine was a little pricey. Staff were attentive and pleasant.

The location is a bit remote from Paraty cut it center, which is good, as you are on the Beach, in a nice environment. The staff is also nice, but the food is not as good as you would expect. We had some "grilled fish", which was not grilled, and not really tasteful. A better food would make this place... More

Pricier than most in Paraty, which is already a somewhat expensive beach resort. But well worth it. Fish and shrimp perfectly prepared and accompanying dishes were delicious (sauteed banana and palm, potato discs, rice, farofa). Service attentive but discreet. Stray dogs kept away from dining area (see complaints in other reviews). Caipirinha ice cream delicious. Excellent, moderately priced Chilean wine.... More

Some of the best seafood I have ever eaten! From the moment you enter the restaurant you are made to feel so welcomed. The restaurant is on the beach entrance and so you view the water, candles on all tables great music. The manager is so warm and friendly. Then the food comes out! We had the Shapo do mar... More

We came here for a late lunch and although it was quiet (probably because it was Brazilian winter time) there was still a lovely atmosphere. The staff were really attentive but not over-bearing, the food was beautiful and fresh, and the music ideal. A playlist of jazz and reggae covers of famous songs was the perfect soundtrack to lunch by... More
