This amazing restaurant is located on a small Beach area called Praia Brava. I had actually read articles on the chef here and was very excited to see if it was worth the hype. I was not disappointed. Ibiza trained Argentinian chef Gustavo Rinkevich was in the kitchen and he provided us with the best meal we have had in... More

Super spot. Great food. Would be amazing in summer. Shame we couldn't try a sun bed. It rained the hole time and we still loved it.

An amazing place to spend the day in beautiful Buzios. Incredible setting, super comfy beds to take in the view of the stunning beach, and food to die for. Bruno, the super cool host couldn't have been more friendly and the chef pulled out all the stops on the food front. The freshest seafood one could wish for. On my... More

One of the best food I ever had in my life in a gorgeous setting ! The Argentinian chef, Gustavo, is perfect in all of his plates. But the desserts.. fabulous, not sugary, ingenious mixtures of tastes.. a real delight. Located in a simple unpretentious terrace, but with a fantastic view of the waves crashing into the rocks... they also... More

Rocka is in an awesome location on Brava beach, Buzios. The restaurant is just above the beach and facing the sea. The food is of high quality, fresh seafood and the Chef proposes a lot of unusual food combinations, creative and with a very good taste. Look for the ceviche, served at lunch time. Cheers!

Enjoy the delights of this hidden oasis. It's a great little spot right by a stunning beach, with excellent views, and food to match. More people who visit Buzios need to be aware of Rocka. Considering the quality of the food, the value is second to none compared with seafront Buzios restaurants.

We loved this place so much we're going back again - tomorrow in fact. Rocka is in a fantastic location on Brava beach, with several comfy beds for couples spread out across the embankment by the restaurant just above the beach, all of which are facing the sea. It's a very relaxing and picturesque setting, with the added bonus of... More

Had lunch at Rocka; a salad each. Really gourmet food, excellent presentation. Portion size a little small, very gourmet! Area to lie outside the restaurant afterward, soaking the sun or in the shade of a parasol. The bar seems to specialise in champagnes. Would be a gorgeous location to share a bottle.
