This was the best meal we had in Paraty by far! Since many people eat on the later side, we went around 7:30 and the restaurant was not quite full. It filled up quickly. The noise level was fine, the waiter was very helpful with suggestions and spoke enough English that we could order. I had the shrimp with black rice and mango salad. The shrimp was spicy, perfectly cooked and plentiful. Deserts were gorgeous. Lots of dishes with coconut, pineapple and mango as they are plentiful in the area. You can stay as long as you like and never feel as if they want your table.

We failed to get into this restaurant on Good Friday but managed to get a really early table on Easter Monday . The food is elaborate and rich and we all thought well presented but perhaps too generous for our tastes. There was vegetarian dishes on the menu and sea-food was a speciality .

Told it was the best place to eat in Paraty, reviews indicated the same, was not disappointed. Do not miss the duck thigh and curry sauce on cheese & banana ravioli, a spectacular combination of flavours. Gogheous little seafood pot called Panelinha de lula was another highpoint.

This is considered to be one of the best restaurants in Paraty – and it is. We went there on our first night and had one of the best seafood meals we have ever had. At first glance the prices look a bit steep but the portions are generous and the food is quite delicious. In terms of value for money Banana da Terra is unbeatable. The only problem is that it is shut on Tuesdays – other wise we would have gone back there on our second day

Banana da Terra has a wonderful menu both for those who are into Brasilian dishes and ingredients (me) and those who prefer more international cusisine (my boyfriend). The service is very friendly. It was a perfect evening!
