Best Pizza in town

We had a great dinner with a nice sea view. Further, the food was very good, especially the Pizza was fantastic. Don't miss this place in Buzios.

The best thing for ourselves about this restaurant was its central position. We had a nice 3 K daily stroll and at times to pop in here was ideal. We did eat here and the pizza was nice with a moderately priced wine. Pleasant experience , however there is far more choice within a 5 minute walk.

The pasta dish that I had was excellent which was a nice surprise as I have been travelling around South America for over a month and every time that I have ordered Pasta it has been terrible. If you like Pasta give this place a try.

The size of the dishes are had-sized in comparison with what you can find in any other good restaurant in Buzios, but don't get me wrong, the food is delicious, the service is good and the experience is nice!

Great romantic atmosphere just half a minute away from the noise. Lovely English speaking waiters that take interest in their customers. We dined here twice. The pizza here is awesome. Thin crusty base and the toppings are refined. Loved it.

Very nice and relaxed atmosphere with a great view. The service was good and the food was excellent: the fish of the day was delicious.

It was a worrying start when it took 20 minutes for our drinks order to arrive. Our disappointment continued when our food took over an hour to arrive. When the food did arrive the wrong dishes were served. At this point we were so hungry we ate the wrong food anyway! The food when it finally arrived was not bad... More

In terms of the view you would struggle to do better at El Deck! As commented upon by others the staff are superb with decent food to boot. It is expensive however and a shared meal costs what you would normally expect to pay for two in Brazil.

Very nice italian restaurant in the centre of Buzios. Atmosphere is great. Good service and the view is amazing. Just on the beachfront. The food is really classical italian but good and tasty. We had pizza, carpaccio, ceviche and pasta and everything was good. If you are looking for something not too sophisticated but with a nice view and good... More

As several others rating this resto, we were greeted by the very friendly owner's father and had a drink or a meal almost every day during our week in Buzios. The food is very good, so are the drinks and the service. Watching the sunset on the Deck with a Caipirinha is strongly recommended. The price level is similar to... More
