My partner and I had dinner here. We had water and two soft drinks plus the chicken stroganoff that was served with garlic rice and French fries. It was enough to serve three people. The rice and chicken was very tasty. I had enough without the French fries. We ended up leaving some. Excellent food and the total price including... More

Buzios is filled with restaurants and all fighting for your business. I have been going to Buzios for over 20 years and Restaurante David is always where I return to. They have the highest food quality and reputation in the area. Fabricio, my waiter, has been there for over 13 years. I feel special and have always been treated with... More

We were taken here by our cousins who live in Buzios for an example of a good traditional Brazilian meal. The Octopus was amazing-tender and delicious. They have some outdoor seating which is nice for people-watching. It's pretty expensive but no surprise for a resort town.

We had lunch at Restaurant David at recommendation of the hotel staff. Very crowded and popular place. Our first main was the Octopus Brazilian grilled style. Taste good, but I must forewarn the price for seafood at these beach location is high. Our 2nd main was supposedly Argentinian meat, BBQ. However, it was so veiny that it is impossible to... More

We went to this restaurant twice in three days, mostly because my brother loves it, but also because in a group of 11 it is sometimes hard to decide where to go. In any case, this gave me the chance to try different things and taste from others at the table. The food is quite good. From the "Bobo de... More

Very good food, good service, but very expensive for a brazilian restaurant. Moqueca de peixe is the best dish in my opinion. I've tried the steak as well but it's a common sense in Brazil that steaks are not the best option on the coast - you better try them in the south, or Mato Grosso do Sul/Minas Gerais.

This was my second time here. The restaurant has become more expensive in the last year to the point where it may not be worth the cost. We ordered the filet minion stroganoff for two (the filet minion is defenitely a misnomer, it's more like chopped up skirt steak in sauce) and it set us back R$88. A little pricy... More

I suppose that those who come here and get chicken or beef are also likely to go to japan and eat mexican food, or visit argentina and have fish. Buzios is a beach town so eat seafood! Buzios is a tourist town so places are expensive, and this one is no exception, but others may perhaps expect lower prices given... More

This place was highly reccommended by our hotel, so we went expecting delicious food, but it was very avg, priced to high for the service and taste. I had an appetizer that was pretty good, but the main course of Churasco mixto (mixed grill of churizo, beef, and chicken) was not good, beef was too tough, chicken was to salty... More
