Great shrimp!

A busy, simple restaurant with great food and service. i think the grilled fish were the best dishes; my shrimp was the best meal I had on the trip.

We stumbled across this little restaurant away from the bustle of the main restaurant/shopping area in Buzios and we were so glad we did. It was so good that we went back the following evening - something we never do. Everything from the romantic setting overlooking the sea, the amazingly delicious and fresh fish dishes, which were excellent value, to... More

Excellent sea food. Excellent service. Adequete prices. It is a small place, may be not to "cool", but it deserves a visit.

We shared a whole grilled achova fish and it was perfect. Just metres from the sea you know it is fresh when the family caught it as well. Worth the little walk from town as this is seafood at it's best. Very simple.

We´re off the centre town for quieter dinner in a less turistic restaurant. We ordered a big anchova (kind of sea bass) for two, and was very nice, big portion and came with rice and salad. Very tasty. As it takes around 30min to be cooked we ordered oil and garlic shrimps... taste just ok, they were not fresh, maybe... More

The concierge at out hotel recommended this restaurant and he was right about the food. During our stay in Brazil, this was (without exaggeration), the best restaurant where we ate. Here it is all about the food (fish), service is speedy and great and the caipis were also the best we had in Brazil. The restaurant is not nice and... More

We are an Australian family of 3... Buzios is a hive of many restaurants, many of them big and overflowing with people.. O Barco is small, simple and the seafood is nothing short of Sensational. The prices are amazing and you cannot got past the grilled lobster, the grilled Giant Prawns, the Groper and shrimp seafood stew or the seafood... More
