We had to wait for a table but we liked the visit

We had to wait a bit for a table as we didn't have a reservation. I do not recommend this restaurant or beach for anyone with mobility issues. It's very steep and has bad steps leading to the beach. We had a fair to good lunch, nothing memorable. Fish mostly a small bottle of champagne 2 glasses... read more

Fantastic food, service, position, structure.........absolutely best ever ! Moreover we spent a day in the beach lounge and it's been simply unforgettable: perfect service, waiters always ready and keeping a close eye on every single customer request / desire and making sure everything was always ok with them. Definitely a must once you get in Buzios !!!!!

Gorgeous little place perched above Brava beach with small areas of seating in the terrain as well as on the main patio surrounded by sun beds for rent and lounge chairs. Right above the beach with two fingers of undeveloped nature surrounding it. Menu is fresh seafood focused (including very good local oysters) with some meats, in addition they have... More

I went there twice during my stay at Buzios and really enjoyed the food: simple menu but super-fresh seafood with excellent service. We tried the octopus carpaccio, grilled seafood platter, oysters and ceviche and everything was delicious.highly recommended !

The amazing view, comfortable lounging beds, great food and tasty drinks make this an amazing place to lounge for an afternoon. Be prepared to pay for it though

Spent a Saturday here from 1100. You will need to book a bed a few days in advance. Good service. Fish is pretty good but not amazing. The setting is what makes this place. But I would look at the place next door, Silk, of you are planning to do this. Rocka is a bit shabby by now. No music... More

Honestly speaking, i return to this place is just because of the Music lounge type they played. Such ambien created such relaxing and chill filling while enjoying the good food and breezy environment. Food wise is delicious, the price is just average as other typical restaurant in that area.The staff however, are friendly and they do speak English. Major cards... More
