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

Expensive restaurant, but with a great view of the beach. The food was quite good (grade 4 from a total of 5), but the dessert did not match the picture on the menu, disappointing. Also, the service was "ok" for thee Rio de Janeiro "standard"... should improve and show more consideration for the clients.

We visited for lunch today and thought the pizza and salads were really fresh and tasty. Pizza had a really great thin base and well seasoned. The service was more efficient than we have experienced locally. Nice views over the bay too.

The location is great and the place is really nice. However is really a bar and the food seems an afterthought: we had a fish and a meat dish, both were tiny and nothing special. Staff forgot about us and the bread we asked for never arrived. The bill was well overpriced for the quality and the (lack of) service.
