800 reais for a dinner: 2 adults and 2 teenagers; 1 bottle of Brazilian white wine and shared desserts. Fish, shrimp, octopus far from extraordinary. Surprising enough, not a single dish with "banana da terra"; a shame. Hard to understand why the place is listed...More

A friend suggested the restaurant to us, but we were disappointed. The food was good, but nothing extraordinary, specially considering the price. Absurdly expensive in our opinion. Dishes serving a single person cost around R$100,00. We expected more for that price.

I had lunch yesterday (Sunday, April 9th) and ate octopus dish. It was really good. But when I asked for the bill, it took 15 minutes to bring it. And they do not apologize for that.

Banana da Terra fulfills its popularity. With a very creative menu and interesting proposals for traditional brazilian and caicara ingredients delivers a great experience for a fancy beautiful night in Paraty. Also, the place is beautiful.

We were late for our reservation here after a storm hit. Staff were very helpful, friendly and accommodating and alongside this the food was imaginative and tasty. Really enjoyed the shrimp with black rice.

Delicious restaurant specialised in the regional caiçara food, mixing fish and bananas. Maybe the best in the city.

Este não é um restaurante para quem estiver com orçamento apertado. Eu e meu marido comemos 2 pratos (lá a porção é individual), um suco e uma caipirinha, pagamos 200 e pouco reais. Todavia, a comida é excelente!
