On the main street, we sat on the sidewalk and had grilled salmon with rice and broccoli sauce. Our first course was "casquinha de Siri" a crab-meat speciality from Brazil. Good service and food.

I see a lot of reviews here not too happy with the meat. When at this restaurant, go for seafood, you are in Buzios for gods sake! The paella is a must try, it is superb, the ingredients are fresh, todays catch, huge portion (we were two and should have shared a one person meal + an appertizer). It is... More

Great for people watching but the food was not amazing. For some reason being by the sea does not guarantee you fresh seafood. Not cheap either. We ordered a 1.4kg fish for R$160.

With a good bottle of wine R$90, sparkling waters and coffee and 10% service charge the bill for two... More

In my opinion it's the most traditional restaurant in Búzios. It has been many years in the city offer good food with fair price. The service can be better

Very good fresh fish (daurade) and a delicious beef stroganoff made for a very enjoyable lunch (and kept us dry while the heavens opened outside). Make sure you order the 'one person' option on the stroganoff, unless you are very very hungry!
