We enjoyed this restaurant so much we went back the next night! Lots of fresh seafood dishes all cooked with local flair and presented nicely. Service and drink selection was also great. Bit on the pricey side but worth it!

Very good food, but not cheap as it is quite the same price than in Europe during Christmas Hollidays... Very tasty but very very long service : more than 1 hour to have the main course. ...

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
