The meal was delicious, from appetizers to desert. My appetizer was a tomato tart with mustard ice cream which was amazing. Our main meal was duck confit that was cooked to perfection. The wines recommended by the chef were also great. Highly recommended.

Pros: the decor is absolutely delightful, full of french pop culture items. The food is amazing, had an amazing risotto with truffles.. the price is very reasonable for the region (+-R$ 100 / plate). Cons: very small restaurant, need to book in advance..

We stayed four nights at the Pousada, and had three flavorful dinners beautifully and exquisitely served. Although we are not used to heavy meals in the evenings , chef Christophe understood and catered exactly to our taste, with perfect balance and portion, from soup , to salads, to main courses, to desserts. We must admit that staying at the Pousada... More

Marvelous France bistrot by the river on the Caminho do Ouro, Paraty's Gold Trail. Super romantic, decorated and served with great attention to detail. I had the dish of sea-bass with shrimps - it was delicious, delicate but flavorful. Live piano music. Highly recommended, perfect for a romantic evening or a business dinner or just to enjoy a great meal.

Now that Voilá Bistrot was elected the best Brazilian restaurant on TripAdvisor you can expect some price increase for sure. Nevertheless, Voilá Bistrot deserved the award!! The food is amazing and the atmosphere is perfect for couples.

Description
Restaurant opened in 2007 in the area of Ponte Branca (6 km from downtown), it has 7 tables and capacity for up to 20 people. The kitchen is headed by the Parisian Chef Christophe Legond while the room is up to his wife, Adriana. The menu features some classic French cuisine and some copyright options. The starters are single and the main dishes for 2 people. Due to the small structure and size of the room, does not accept groups or children. Bistrot with romantic atmosphere, candlelight and French music. It works only on weekends (Thursday to Saturday) and eventually (with reservation, high season or local events) on other days and times. It is recommended to book in advance.
