Great service and good food

I read about Salt in Trip Advisor as offering good food and service than some of the other more famous Buzios restaurants but at a better price point. The service was excellent but due to heavy rain there were very few people in the restaurant. Nevertheless the staff were very friendly and... read more

Best caprese salad I have ever had! (& I've been to Italy many times) The bartenders are also top notch. :) Such a happy place to dine.

We decided to eat here cause the menu said there was a dish of steak with fried potatoes and that it was for 2 people. My mother in law asked if the steak with pepper was spicy and the hostess swore it wasn't and that it was just a pepper sauce (the creamy kind, so not spicy) She had a... More

We had a lovely meal at Salt. The location is perfect along the promenade so that you can watch people passing by during your meal. The restaurant is pretty inside, but we would recommend a table outside. The staff were very helpful and attentive. The food was excellent, very fresh fish, fresh vegetables, and a broad selection of dishes on... More

We dined early in the evening and were the only people in the restaurant (this should have been a clue but just thought we were early). Salt is right across the street from the water and is a charming little place. We ordered drinks and the coconut shrimp appetizer. Both were very good and the service excellent. We had ordered...

On a romantic weekend in Buzios, went for an early dinner at the Orla Bardot. Several places were available but we found the cozy and quiet Salt. The Menu dispalyed outside was interesting, so we proceed to get a nice meal. Romantic setting, nice music and the reception was great. We order our meal but since both of us are... More

We have been there with recommandation of our hotel. The location is nice just in front of the sea. However the food was not as promising as we expected. Beef carpaccio was fully covered of cheese and nuts and we could not even feel the flavour. Ce iche was nice and duo tartar also mixed with a lot of mango.... More

My wife and I arrived at Salt and were looking forward to a good experience after reading the reviews. The atmosphere seemed just perfect for our mood - quaint and romantic with a subtle hint of being a hip spot. Unfortunately, after ordering the special prefix menu (which is what brought us to Salt on a Thursday night) we were... More
