We were a couple and came for dinner. We had great food: the Amado Fish was unbelievable. We had also a shrimp thing for entrance (like in photos below). Good live music (R$ 10,00 per person), and great service. A bit expensive (see the count photo below), but worths the price. I totally recommend it and would come back, as... More

We came for dinner. the service was excellent. We had Shrimp risotto that was too salty. The waiter saw we were not happy and suggested to replace it with new one.Nice live Brazilian singer.

Our trip to Paraty was wonderful, but our dining experiences came up short. This restaurant , well located centrally, promised but did not deliver. Both the sea-bass dished were over cooked and tough/rubbery. Shrimp provencale was good however. Overall, average marks.

We were there to eat the piranha dish, and was just like it should be, the meat was tasteful and tender. My kid also loved the. Holden dish with spaghetti and beef.

We actually went to this restaurant 3 times in our 3 day stay in paraty it was that good!! The portions are huge (or so we think) so we shared a starter and this was enough for the two of us as a main meal with a side salad. The steak with garlic is phenomenal! A definite must try!

The location is great. The tropical salad is great,and the mixed seafood stew we cooked in clay is a must have. We paid about 60 usd for two including bear. I think it is inexpensive for the quality of food

As I stay for a week in Paraty early January 2016, I quick realised after a tour of the local bar and restaurants that Bendita was the safest and best restaurant in town. The menu is very rich so I never eat the same thing and was always nicely surprised. The service is very friendly and discreet. And the most... More
