Although a little pricey, Rocka is worth every penny. The menu changes constantly (a large list of specials written on a blackboard) based on what they have that's fresh. It's almost exclusively seafood, though they do have a steak or chicken dish on the menu too. But you're not there for steak, you're there for the fish. My wife and... More

Praia Brava, a little beach with big waves and definitely one of the best beaches in Buzios. We decided to walk there (short walk from hotel) for a drink, sun tan and maybe lunch. Found Rocky Beach lounge.....took a lounge seat facing the ocean and big waves....very nice place and setting amidst the greens, sea and crashing sounds of the... More

Had lunch here, this place is very overrated. Lobster noodle salad had one mouthful of lobster and some nicely cooked but very salty noodles with no salad. Don't go if your hungry or looking for good value. All presentation and no substance. Service was very poor (miss recorded order of both food and drink so only one meal arrived, unforgivable)...

Was recommended that we go here. The location is fab - found an empty double sun lounger and sat down. The pillows provided are pretty grubby. There were two waiters, they both stood staring into space, one seemingly performing a card trick for his friend.. Took 15mins to get their attention. Menus were brought over- it then took a further... More

my family and i visited Rocka during our visit to Brazil for the World Cup. Rocka was recommended to us, so we decided to go have a look. what a BEAUTIFUL setting, lying on the loungers overlooking the stunning bay, drinking a glass of wine. the food was so delicious, delicate and flavorful. we received desserts complimentary of the owner...

This is probably one of the coolest and best food places I have visited… located on a cliff top over looking the beach and the surf.. great music, food, vibe, … I loved it, you must go, over indulge and have champagne with your lunch and relax… If you are in Buzios you must try Rocka….

We spent the past 2 weeks in Búzios and we've tried all the decent restaurants on the peninsula. This was by FAR the best of a good lot, and so good in fact that we couldn't resist eating there on 3 occasions and trying almost all the dishes on the menu between the six of us during that time.

This place is definitely worth a visit, set up on the hill above the beach. Arrive early at lunch to get a good table at the front with a view across the beach and the sea. We stopped for lunch and initially were going to sit on the beds and have a drink but then decided to just get a... More

The restaurant sits above Brava Beach in Buzios, one of many beaches in the area, and adjacent to the Pousada Brava Beach Club, which is littered with Brazilian beauties on sun loungers. It's an upscale beach restaurant with a very relaxed manner. Veuve Clicquot is virtually on tap, though we had a crisp and semi-sweet Chardonnay. Fish is locally caught... More
