This small restaurant has excellent food for excellent price. They are always crowded (specially at night). It is not a fancy place, but it is a good place to go for seafood (they also have meat and chicken).

When we first saw the restaurant we were a bit disappointed, since it looks old and not very well maintained. But we decided to give it a chance and I am glad we did! Food is simply amazing and it is probably the best cost...More

O Barco is a good choice for lunch in Búzios. It is a simple restaurant with great food. Try pastel de camarão with a cold beer, after a sunny day at the beach. It is like paradaise.

Without doubt, the best restaurant in Búzios. We have had dinner few times, and each and every time is better than the previous. All dishes are amazing. The staff very kind. 100% recommended.

Small and quaint, not smart and stanly, this traditional little restaurant served up a nice fish stew but the fish I chose was a bit dry and tasteless. However maybe we were unlucky as every evening it was packed with tourists and locals alike. Reasonable...More

We eat twice at O Barco. The fish (grouper) and lobster are great and the prices are amazing (less than £20 for a lobster dinner). The caipirinhas at BRL 10 are not to be missed either. Highly recommend.
