We enjoyed two excellent meals on successive nights in rainy Paraty. He service was excellent and our waiter was able to commmmunicate with us in good English. The dishes were innovative and well done, the atmosphere cosy, and the wine list very good. Excellent piano music as accompaniment to dinner.

This was our second visit to Porto in five years. The restaurant is very nice, the staff excellent and the food very good. I had a risotto with veal and my partner a ravioli. Both were very good. The crab cake was not the best, tasted as if it were made with frozen crab.

This is a intimate restaurant with live music (just instrumental and not noisy), decorated with paintings from local artists!

I had the fettuccini with sea food and I recomend it. As starter I had the "crab meat cake" and It was average (not special). As a dessert I had the coconut icecream with ginger, which was a tasteful combination.

Be aware about the size of the dish you order. If you are hungry, the size of some dishes could be disappointing.

The service is not that fast, but it is friendly.

We had a great fine dining at this cozy restaurant right next to our hotel. The fish was very good, the waiter Dado was friendly and the live soft music (brazilian Bossa Nova) performed by one cello and another voice and guitar guy was something unforgetable.

We 're always happy to find a place with a bit of a different menu. And so we had ravioli with some pretty creative filling and sauces, and liked it. There was live piano being played which gave a nice atmosphere but you're indeed charged 8 reais pp for it. Cover charge of 12 pp includes a selection of bread and mini snacks that you can also turn down. The service is very nice.
