Thai curry was a pleasant change

We ate here last night and it was a pleasant change to have red Thai curry after weeks of travelling. The service was friendly and the curry very nice albeit a little salty, but that seems to be the Brazilian way. Wine was good too..

we could find a table outside. the view was perfect but it is not so easy to watch it because of the walking people. Mosquitos were big problem in january season so take necessary precautions. The menu does not involve many types of main courses and appetizers. But i can comment the price is higher than the value.

Last night, dinner for 2, Buzios, at SALT. Probably the best service I've experienced in Brasil which is not saying much given the terrible service in restaurants in Rio. We shared a ceviche and tuna as a starter and then my friend had moretuna and I had shrimps. We had a bottle of wine and shared a desert. For.... 400... More

If you want an above average meal from a menu that is a notch above the average, then try a meal at Salt. Sitting inside or out, the décor is a little classier than many of the restaurants in Buzios and the service is good and friendly - I'm sure it won't disappoint

We were here for a nice dinner. The service was excellent and food and wine were really good. The food is a bit more sophisticated which we appreciated a lot. We had beef carpaccio, filet mignon and the lobster rolls with Parma ham. Everything was really good. The Chardonnay Reserve made it complete. Not to forget to mention the nice... More

The food is great and the place is really nice and romantic. You have the Bardot shore view and candles on the table. We had dinner and I should say was one of the best meals you had during our stay. Worth a visit, for sure.

Very good place, by the sea! Very good service with a happy hour before 8pm :-) We were a table of 10, arranged quickly (ok, the place was almost empty on a Sunday night) :-) Great duo of fish tartar and then amazing lamb cutlets. Highly recommended!

The food in Salt is very good, as well as the cocktails and wine list. The location in great, right on the bay, in an animated part of Buzios, easy of access. However we had to wait for an hour to get a table outside as we didn't want to seat inside as the noise was way too loud. Overall... More

Horrible customer service!! I can't complain about the food or the ambience. Both were great! We had a lovely outdoor table on a beautiful Saturday night and everything was really great! Then, all of a sudden, the Host/Maitre'D, comes over to the table and says "you need to leave. We have guests waiting for tables". Holy Crap!! I eat out... More
