The food was good, however charging the Coca Cola 7 Reals when the supermarket price is 2.5 is beyond justification. I travelled for 1 month in Brazil and in the class of casual dinning, the price of the soft drink was the highest at this location (otherwise up to 6 Reals maximum). Toilets, even when shared with the rest of... More

We ate wraps which were quite basic but tasted nice enough and fresh. Only reason not to go back is that it is a little overpriced for what you get. I left hungry. Nice fresh juices.

We had a very tasty dinner here which was great value for money. All four of us had yummy meals and they were all fresh. Juices are made on the spot, flat bread rolled out and cooked and loads of fresh veges are used too. We ordered an entree, four mains and drinks which totalled R.130 - highly recommend!

Friendly atmosphere, nice & clean restaurant and falaffels and kebabs from around R18-22. Made a la minute in the pan at order, so expect around 10-15 minutes waiting time as you have in other restaurants as well. The food tasted very fresh and want you to come back for more another time

Had a delicious dinner here - donor kebab and the Flying carpet mixed plate including hummus, pittas, babaganoush and salad. Total cost was 70 Real for two people, including drinks. Lovely owner who speaks very good English. Can sit outside in the hot evenings and people watch on the street. Would highly recommend!

This place is the best to eat in Paraty! Delicious hummus, babaganoush and the best falafel ever! Make sure you try the flying carpet dish, it is a mix everything. The friendly owner really makes the place worth 5/5.

Great little cafe with authentic Turkish food from a real Turk! I had a plate with hummus, baba ganoush, couscous, bread, falafel and it was delicious and great value. Rare to find a tasty foreign cuisine in Brazil. Would go again!
