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

Those people really live on their reputation. Expensive fish, not well cooked and indifferent waiter. I would not go back again and would recommend other places that were SO MUCH BETTER and LESS EXPENSIVE

I had the best Paella of my life at Do David. The quality is really good. The wine list is not the best but then again, none of the restaurants in Brazil have amazing wine.. Do David has authentic hi quality food and decent wine.

This restaurant is very old in Buzios and it seems to be the choice for many locals. We had fish with shrimp sauce and it was very good, the dish for one person was enough to share. On the other hand, salad was very expensive and poor. All in all, is a good choice, but nothing special - there are... More
