A great place even for special occasions, with excellent food and service. We had a starter to share, the grilled lobster accompanied by vegetables and a red snapper filet in a dark sauce and rice. All of it was delicious and tasty. With a small bottle of white wine and water the bill including tipps for the service (which was... More

Walked past Bar do Ze a couple of times before we went in, the reviews on TA looked good so in we went. Staff friendly but unfortunately the food we had let it down. I had the seafood risotto which was mushy and frankly tasteless, my wife's steak was chewy. I mentioned my dish to the waiter and he just... More

Firstly the service was exceptional, efficient, personal but unobtrusive. The food, we had the bruchetta and the carpacio to start both were exceptionally fresh and nicely presented. The main course... More

Amazing food, cozy ambient and great service. If you want to appreciate a high class cuisine and gastronomy, don’t miss Bar do Zé. Dishes are prepared by a local chef and are striking. Meats and sauces are special and well prepared. The seafood is really fresh and they have a bunch of options. In a whole week I attended this... More

We really enjoyed the food here and the service was great. First night; we started with some mango caipirinhas which I recommend, then the salmon ceviche and the white fish ceviche too. Both come in a citrus and onion marinade, which we preferred to the coconut milk version that we had tried elsewhere as this was much fresher tasting. We... More

Simply the best risotto in town and the best I have eaten in my life. Rather expensive for Brazilian standards but definitely a must.

Super expensive with an absolut mainstream offer. Ordered an ceviche that tasted like lemon juice and a green salad without any dressing..
