I celebrated my 60th birthday here with family and friends in March and it was absolutely perfect! The food is delicious - fresh fish, prawns and octopus and the location is beautiful. We were sat about 4 metres from the sea under a huge tree, visited by monkeys. Good friends and caipirhinhas made for a particularly memorable experience.

Wonderful food! Charming atmosphere! Adorable fishing village, you eat right by the water. The ceviche was amazing! And the food is brilliant. Service was good. Definitely go!

This a great place for FRESH sea food which should be really easy to find in and around Paraty but which in fact is not the case many if not most of the restaurants in paraty serve frozen fish some of which is awful fish like panga which comes frozen from vietnam This is most defiantly not the case with...

We were staying in Praia Grande for 5 days and ate here for 4 of them. The food is simple but perfect. Just what you want when you are on the beach. The service is excellent and the location is beautiful - under a big tree on the sand. Though there are boats dotted in the water around it is... More

We spent a day here, watching the tide, drinking Caipirinhas and reading in hammocks. The beach was full of boats, which made us reluctant to swim, but was accessible from the restaurant. We also ate some garlic shrimp that was next level good.

For those who like the simple things in life, this is the place! The motto, “the simpler, the better” can perfectly describe the agreeable ambiance of the restaurant, which is right in front of a blue sea full of cute boats and egrets, in a beautiful and calm beach, with colorful tables arranged beneath shady trees! It couldn’t be better,... More

Outstanding food and excellent service! Recommend! The best sea food dishes from Paraty and maybe Brazil! My suggestion is plancha of sea foods and one shrimp moqueca. I love it with one cachaca to start the service.

Lovely place! We liked it a lot. It's literally on the sand (earthy sand, not really good as a beach) and so cozy! The person serving us was nice and cordial, we just had a fruit juice (fresh!) and was very good. I would surely come back for lunch or dinner.

We were recommended this place by the owner of our pousada, and visited during our day trip to Praia Grande. As the weather wasn't fantastic, we decided to take a long lunch at this place, and I'm so glad we did. The waiters did not speak any English but this didn't prove too much of a problem - the service... More
