Great food with a spectacular seaview

This restaurant is located at Praia Brava. We had one of our best meals in our trip there. The service could be better and the drinks were a little overpriced. Ah... you can use their lounge chairs during or after your meal. We during "winter" so I don't know how busy it is during summer.

I really enjoyed the views. The food was also good. It is above Praia Brava. Oysters were good. Also the fish was fresh. I had the grouper. Reserve if you can. Sometimes is crowded.

We booked a lounge but unfortunetly we stayed very close t the top where we couldnt relax with all the noise and loud eletronic music coming from the other beach club next to Rocka, so my advice is ask for a loung near the sea...The food was good but for the price could be better...

This is such a cool place to spend the day. Great views, fantastic beach and fresh sea food. They also had a nice selection of wines to choose from. I would recommend making a booking just in case as it does get busy. Not the cheapest place in Buzios but worth every penny. Bear in mind it does shut about... More

From the moment we arrived we felt welcome. Staff go out of their way to help you, luckily there was English translation on the menus. However the dishes of the day on the blackboard were a little more tricky. Our lovely waitress then had the chef bring the fresh fish specials for us to see. 15 Oyster starters followed by... More

Rated as average only because it is a fairly basic beach shack. Nothing wrong with that, unless you are expecting a classy restaurant. Food was OK, fish very fresh, but like most of the seaside cafes, it only had a limited menu and it's not possible to vary the offering - if it's fish and garlic bananas ( yes, they... More

Had lunch a Rocka Beach Restaurant on jan 28/15. Great Fd & setting. Staff was friendly. Food was fresh & well presented. Best meal yet in Buzios. Pricey compared to Vancouver, Canada but that seems to be the norm here in Brasilia

I really love this place. I've been here several times and have always had a great time. The champagne selection is great. The food is amazing and the view is incredible. I have always been treated kindly and have received excellent service each time. Looking forward to my next visit!!!
