If you can afford to be there at the low season, you can get the experience of being completely by yourself at this magnificent restaurant on a hill, which did not need much effort to be well decorated (nature had taken care of it). Kind staff, a distinguished guest (their colorful bird) and extremely well cooked food. Two strong suggestions: the BEM CASADINHO shrimp and the A JULIANA shrimp dishes (both cost USD 55, serves two persons). It is located at the ILHA DO ALGODAO (means cotton island), it is 1,5 hours away from the mainland docks. The view from the restaurant is stunning and the water surrounding the island is crystal clear, great for snorkelling.

On our recent trip to Paraty we stopped in here for dinner on our first night and were no impressed. Although the prices are slightly higher during holiday season (as we were told by one of the workers on a boat tour) they seemed too high for what they had to offer. We waited 20 minutes for someone to even notice that we were ready to order and trying to get their attention and while we were ordering we were interrupted twice as the waiter simply walked away to do something else without a word. The food was decent but took an extremely long time (we just ordered a pizza) to get to our table. We won't be going back.

For many, many years this was one of Paraty's top restaurants. I have eaten here often over the years but had not been back for five years. This place is now best to be avoided.

We arrived and noticed only one table occupied ( this should have been a sign!). No waiter or waitress, let alone the maitre, ventured near our table. They were all hanging out of the window or standing in the doorway, blissfully unaware of the presence of clients. Finally a girl appeared and brought the ( very tatty) menus. The selection of dishes has not changed at all over the years.

No couvert ( bread, tidbits) appeared or offered. Dinner itsself dragged along with unexciting food. The wine list is very limited ( most wines there were no longer available!) Desserts were never a strong point in this restaurant, so we skipped this part ordering coffee. No longer the local liqueurs or cachaça appear. All together not good, not the food, terrible service and ambiance zero. And yes, to be able to pay I had to get up and fetch the waiter from the street! And be prepared for a high bill.

I have been many times for lunch in this Hiltinho on a private island. The setting is just perfect. It is on top of a Hill overlooking the Paraty Bay. The only downside is the many steps one has to climb to reach the restaurant. The restaurant is surrounded by an exuberant vegetation and even has two Araras that wonder about freely. The food is somewhat expensive, but considering the difficulty of reaching the place I guess it could not be less. Most of the Menu is of Fish Dishes. they also have wonderful "caipirinhas". It is the "one" Restaurant foreigners love when visiting Paraty.

Lots of options of food (not only seafood), good service, excellent location and a slightly lower price than the others.
