Good news: Great location near Ossos. Seaside, view of boats at anchor, ocean breeze. Bad news: waiter unable to deliver acceptable service in 3 languages. We planned to have dinner but gave up after terrible service with appetizer--bolinho de bacalhau (cod fritters) which were nothing special, but waiter didn't deliver sauce with it, and told us there was no sauce...

Passed this place every evening on way into town. Read the reviews and thought would give it a go as hadn't been having great dining experiences in buzios to date. Was initially a bit disappointed by the menu as it was mainly geared to meal sharing which wasn't ideal as our party had very different food preferences. The food was... More

I was by myself with 3 kids looking for a place to eat. Obama, the waiter from Mata Hari approached me with the specials. Prices were really great for Buzios! Decided to try. Obama was one of the best waiters that I've ever had. He helped me with the kids, offered great options. Food was very good and half the... More

We ordered a muqueca dish that was delicious! They say one dish is good for two people, but it is a lot of food to satisfy even three people. Great service!

We visited Mata Hari based on the scores here. Overall we had a bad dining experience. When we sat down the waiters were having a meal right near to us at a table. The service was terrible and it seems they are running the show. We never saw anybody else that looked like Management. The main course of grilled line... More
