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

A tad bit overpriced like all other restaurants here but good location, vibrant atmosphere and good food. Menu is in english and some of the waiters speak english as well for those who don't speak english

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..

I have eaten better dishes all over Buzios that were actually better than their same versions at bar do ze. Ok, it is a great location in orla Bardot, still, not worth the visit. Won't go back, would recommend to a less-than-nice friend.

We came here twice - the first to enjoy a caipirinha/ beer while enjoying the view. We checked out the menu...which looked promising but decided to keep exploring to see if something caught our eye. After a while we realized that was our best option and returned and this was probably one of my better meals in Buzios. I had... More

It is a beautiful location. However, after great recommendations I was clearly disappointed by my food - a filled filet mignon which was everything else then tender - actually my worst meet experience during my stay of 3.5 weeks in Brazil. Considering that the prices are not low I cannot recommend this place. However, maybe it was my mistake and... More
