Good food, but very expensive

well located (Bardot waterfront), very tasty food (seafood risotto spectacular sea) food was ready in 15 minutes, very good service (people speak Portuguese. English, Spanish fluently). Bad: overpriced for pasta dishes and risotto, there are other options nearby so tasty with best price.

It is not just the ambience of this amazing restaurant to make it this charm but as well this peculiar fish plates. Nuts married with fish and meat for a delicate tasting experience.

The place is extremely cozy, specially at night with candle lights and a rustic setting, location is nice at Orla Bardot and it's nice to look at people passing by.

Beautiful people watching. Great service. Got seated quickly and our food arrived quickly too. We had the meat carpaccio, seafood spaghetti and the Panama style fish and it was all delicious, fresh and tasty. The bartender at the bar was a little arrogant and aggressive when we were waiting for our tables and my only complaint is that our cocktails... More

I spotted this place whilst doing the obligatory evening stroll through central Buzios. Well lit, romantic with superb linen on the tables ... AND there was a cue to get in. So, as you can imagine, as soon as I could grab a table, be it lunch or not, I had to see what the fuss was about. And I... More

I went with friends. I ordered the duck w apricot sauce and limoncello risotto. It was amazing! The view is fantastic. Go early to get a table outside in order to garantee the best spot in the place!! Beautiful

We were here on the last night of our one week stay in Buzios and we probably had the best dinner of the whole week. We went to a lot of places, but here everything was close to perfect for us. The host was great and she had the whole table thing very much under control. We had to wait... More

We had a delicious dinner in Bar so Ze when we were in Buzios in november. Both starter, maincourse and dessert were superb! The restaurant has very cosy and delightful atmosphere! Definitly worth a visit during your stay! We went back for our last dinner in Buzios.
