Good location, good food

Great lunch time bar, located on the sea front, offers good sites of the bay and serves very good fish dishes.

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

Ate here twice in 5 days. Really fresh fish, large portions in a no nonsense well run no frills establishment. If there is a queue you must go into the restaurant to put your name down for a table . We went for Sunday lunch and it was busy but we only had to wait a few minutes to be... More

The O Barco restaurant features an excellent location by the beach. It feels cozy and has a simple decor. The service was ok, but was expecting a bit of more. The prices are reasonable for Buzios standards (means pretty expensive). The choice of meals in the menu is good. The meal (seafood pasta) was of average size. The taste lacked... More

My husband and I had a delicious lunch here today overlooking the ocean! We had fried calamari, a salad, and a rice dish with grilled calamari. It isn't fancy or expensive, just great, fresh food. We also had a nice conversation with our waiter, Pablo.
