Good food, large portions

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... read more

We visited as my husband is called David. We did not have a reservation, but the restaurant was pretty quiet when we visited at about 6pm and we chose an outside table. The setting wasn't great with plain white plastic table cloths. Prices on the menu are a little confusing as the same dish appears twice with different prices. I... More

There are far better Restaurants in Buzios than this one. The motto here seems to be quantity of food rather than quality of food. If you are not fussy this is the place for you however if you prefer a better quality meal look elsewhere. We were disappointed especially after it had been recommended by our Hotel.

Great service. We loved the seafood risotto. It would be enough for 3 people. Good value even for 2 people. Would recommend.

Simply great food. During 3.5 weeks in Brazil this was the best dinner and this for a descent price. Later I have also been in Bar Do Ze, a disappointment after the great food I enjoyed here for half of the price.

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
