Best fish in Buzios

It does look like a fast food from outside but fish is delicious. You cannot miss the sea fruit spaghetti and the fried fish. On the top you can taste other delicious Brazilian speciality all of that for 11 euro each so do not miss it!!!!

This place is recommended by the hotel, it doesn't disappoint and I was pretty impressed by the seafood stew, place is quiet before the sea. The place is small, so be prepare to wait a bit before there is a place to sit. Good food deserve to wait a little :)

Great value, great food, wonderful view. If you like a seaside restaurant. Remember... This is not a luxurious place! Made for those that go to places to eat, not to be!

I believe this restaurant is owned by fisherman and that means the seafood is caught fresh daily. The food there is very good and reasonably priced. I highly recommend going there, but please note that the restaurant is closed on Tuesdays. I first went there on a Tuesday to see closed doors. Buzios is a small fishing beach tour that... More

I went to O Barco in Buzios, Brazil, based upon a TripAdvisor recommendation. I was very happy with the food, and I would definitely return. The food was very reasonable, the portions were generous, and the customer service was outstanding. From the beginning when I could look past the patio front, into the interior, and even into the kitchen I... More

We came here twice during our stay in Buzios. The place is simple but the food is excellent and the prices are good and cheaper than other restaurants in the area. I especially loved the shrimps Moqueca dish! very much recommended!

Everything we had was really tasty and we paid 100 reals for 2 people with one appetizer,and a yummy fish casserole with 2 drinks each! Very good place that i can recommend in buzios to have seafood! Could get a bit crowded though...

Good price and good food. Nice place for a lunch but don't be expecting anything fancy. It's a proper locals place but well worth a visit. One nice thing is that it is actually away from the main strip a bit.
