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

Stopped in here as I walked about the area. The the owner's father greeted us at the entrance. A true Bavarian! Great place great food awesome atmosphere with strong drinks. We had the El Deck Pizza, and an El Deck Bruschetta with a Maracuja' Caipirinha (passion Fruit) and a regular caipiriniha. A bit expensive for pizza but good at about... 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.

This restaurant has a great view and a cosy ambientation. Waiter service was good. We ordered fried "yuca" with guacamole and a pizza. Food was just good, nothing special, but It was a bit overpriced. They had the most expensive and smallest spring water bottle of Buzios!

We are staying in the hotel this restaurant is part of and walked past this a couple of times because it was very quiet. Despite the fact that it is quiet (low season) the meal was fab. Great service, waiters were really helpful and very keen to practice their English and the pizza was awesome. The best I have had... More
