It's very close to Rua das Pedras, in a simple house. They have seafood as specialty but we choose meet "Picanha na brasa", which came with rice, french fries and farofa with vinagrete. The food was good and the dishes for two people to share have good price.

This restaurant was recommended to us from our hotel Perola in Buzios from the bartended Carlos! I ordered the Moqueca fruto do mar for 2 for the 3 of us and it was more than enough and it was delicious.

Sit outside if you can -- the atmosphere is a little fluorescent inside. We had the seafood stewed in wine sauce and shrimp in coconut sauce, both excellent.

We both had pasta...very well prepared, and enourmous portions...could have shared one. The service was very good, the ambience was so-so...too many kids for my liking, but overall would recommend.

Of course you should have a fish dinner if you are staying in a fishing village. We ordered the second item on the menu but I can't say it in Portuguese. According to the charming restaurant manager who spoke a little English, we ordered BBQ Sea Bass for 2 and he brought out the raw fish for our approval. It... More

During a week recently spent in Buzios David ended up being our favourite restsurant. We came here three times for dinner. Twice we had the grilled fish and once a great sizzling prawn dish. We really enjoyed our meals and also found service very friendly and attentive. The location is also great for people watching if you sit in the... More

The lobster with mango sauce (sorry, my Portuguese isn't good enough to remember the name) was ok. Salty. Salad was fresh and good. If you fall on it, worth a visit but certainly you could do better in Buzios.

Food selection good and tasty but all dishes are designed to serve 2. Don't understand this we always want different food . Even a meal for 2 could comfortably serve 3. Well prepared and served. Expensive for Brazil, average for Buzios. Waiters friendly
