portions are big, stick to the local stew to avoid disappointments and order one portion for two. Staff is very nice.

We liked this restaurant so much we went two nights running! We had SUCH a great waiter, so helpful. I am embarrassed that we don't know his name! He is very tall, speaks excellent English, and has lived in US and Portugal. He is an asset to the company! He advised us in choices of food , and of wines... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Paraty since 1990 and we dine here at least once a year. The menu is the same during all these years and we usually have moqueca or steak Vinicius Moraes. The portions are big, sufficient for 2-3 persons. It used to be possible to cut the meat (file mignonette) with two spoons, but last... More

Everywhere you ask, people will recommend you this restaurant. And there I went! Asked for a sea food board (as they call it), and was not disappointed. We ate it in 4 people (2 who eat few, 2 who eat well), and it was a fair amount, every one got their share and was enough to satisfy. The fresh fruit... More

This is a basic restaurant, but charges as if it were superior. There are better options near by, look for them. Simple tables, all together, not a beautiful place. The food was ok, not delicious, but not bad as well. It serves Brazilian food. There is NO desert, NO coffee and NO WiFi !

We went here based on a coworker's recommendation. He told us he ate there every night while in Paraty. Now we know why. This place is very unassuming and can be easily overlooked. It's across from Paraty 33. The portions here are huge! My wife and I shared a shrimp omelette, with rice and french fries. Our meal only cost... More

I've been there several times (other trips) and I always enjoy their food (and caipirinha). You need to be very hungry to eat all the food thy put on the table. Good location, in the old part of the town, is also a something that I appreciate.
