I randomly stumbled into O Barco after coming to the realization that the restaurant I wanted to go to was closed. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food here.

We ate at Barco twice during our stay in bouzios, the food was wonderful. All was fresh and tasty. The staff was very nice. Must eat: pastels, bluefish and mukaka. Even if you need to wait a bit for a place do it!

A small seafood restaurant on the promenade. Lovely views of the bay with very fresh seafood and filled with locals and visiting Brazilians. Waiters spoke a little English and the menu had cheap but decent wines. Well worth a few hours.

What a great little restaurant overlooking the water. The waiters were very nice and even suggested a very good fish fillet. Both waiters spoke good English. And the prices were awesome! Definitely a must go!

Cheapest yet the best seafood u will find in Buzios. Only 55 reais for a huge lobster dish. Served with 2 full lobsters, capers, rice, and a huge salad with heart of palms. São Paulo charges 200 for lobster!

We were a group of eight and everyone loved this restaurant. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was great. The caldeirada, a fish/seafood stew, was to die for!

Small restaurant, on a good location overlooking the water, close to the statue of Kubitschek. For around 100 RS we had a very good moqueca and a few drinks for 2 persons. Recommended!

Ate here twice over the course of a few days and had the same grilled fish, rice, potatoes and black beans dish each time. Unbelievably tasty!!! Lovely location too looking out at the sunset and friendly staff.
