Had dinner with my husband. A bit of a wait between the salad and the meal, but we were not in a hurry so no problems for us. The food was delicious. Live music was a plus!

The meal was fine, a bit overpriced, but the food was tasty. We went wanting pizza - which was on the menu they posted outside. When we were seated they gave us a menu that did not include pizza and was much more expensive than the menu posted outside. We almost left, but decided instead to ask and sure enough they had another menu. I found this curious. Nevertheless we were able to order our pizza and had shared a bottle of wine (after having to ask for the wine list as well). While both were quite satisfactory, we got the feeling that the server was disappointed we didn't order more. Overall the meal was good, and we enjoyed the live acoustic music, but felt that the service was a little lacking.

Poor overpriced food served by grumpy waiters only interested in serving as many tourists as possible. After struggling to get the waiter to spend enough time to reveal what the 'high quality fish' was it was then not fresh, over cooked and tasteless. My fiance was left crunching through grit from her seafood (which looked like it came out of a pre-bought bag) pasta.

Also watch out for the 8 reals per person 'music cover charge' additional to the 10% service charge.

This restaurant was recommended by our landlord in Paraty as the number 3, after Caminho do Ouro and Banana da Terra. He was right. Nice food, live music, the night we went there was a very large party of schoolchildren but this did not detract from the evening. Quite good value.

Service is slow, but far better than average for Paraty, where taking 30 minutes to be served is commonplace.
Very central, the place is charming, and the food is good - had a great moqueca. Although the restaurant is big, it can fill up quickly. Will try the pizza next time - we were in for lunch, and the clay oven was still warming up.
