Imagine Brigite Bardot in Brazil.

Imagine visiting the glamorous side of life of Brazil. Skip Rio, head up to Buzios and once there sit down for a drink or a meal at Bar do Zé. Where the excellent service is famous and the views are just amazing. No wonder that place was Brigite Bardot´s favorite spot. Wines are expensive but you... read more

We went here on recommendation of our local friends. The location and atmosphere is really great, but the food was average at best. I did like the passionfruit sauce with the fish, but the actual fish was way over cooked and dry. The seafood spaghetti was made of frozen seafood and pasta over cooked. There are so many other places... More

After several visits to Bar do Zé in the past, coming back to Búzios, it was my natural 1st choice for dinner. Location is terrific - the view is amazing and you are in the heart of Búzios. Food continues to be excellent and the drinks are also as good as I could remember from my last visit. However, this... More

Just had a meal in Bar do Ze and the lobster was excellent. Service was good and the white wine was perfect with the seafood.

dinner was ok, average food, nice decor, good service. Tables near the window suffer from a very strong smell of drains, best to sit inside

We ate here and first ordered the bread basket with 3 sauces. It was horrible and so expensive considering the bread and butter is part of the meal. The bread was also totally stale. We had the Rosemary snapper which had good flavor, but was SO over cooked. Pomodori was horrible. Do not order it. Entirely a bad experience. Go... More

It has a nice atmosphere and was the only restaurant crowded when we visited...the food was good but not great and prices were too much for what they serve...but it looks like everything in Buzios is overpriced, made for foreigners tourist!
