Excellent fresh fish nothing is frozen, 60% of their veggies are from an organic veggie garden, the service is second to none and the location and view is amazing. Best Fresh fish in Búzios. Highly recommend the trip. Will be going back again!

Rocka beach is a nice place but nothing special copared to the beach at Insolito or Rua de Pedras or anywhere else in Buzios. Do not forget to bring a towel cause they have only the sun beds itself and nothing else. There was a construction next to the place when we were there so it was a bit noisy...... More

After about 20 meals at this restaurant I can assure you that this is the best restaurant in Búzios. I have been living here in Búzios for almost 2 years and have been visiting more or less every restaurant. There are many good restaurants in Búzios but the thing that makes Rocka special is that Gustavo (the splendid experimental chef)... More

Went for lunch, and a few drinks. The food was superb, the service was exceptional. Barbara took great care of us and was attentive to every detail. The view is amazing. We watched the oyster guy harvest oysters and he serve them up on the spot. A bit expensive but well worth it. One of Buzios best restaurants.

Rocka is a special, one of kind place. Breathtaking ocean and beach views. Fresh seafood cooked to perfection. Terrific service. I would fly 10 hours just to go to Rocka.

I don't want to review this place and make it too popular. Santiago and his crew have the ultimate shabby chic beach club. The food is excellent. If you are a european don't expect perfection and it is very busy when it gets hot ! I would drink the cocktails and leave the Brasilians to drink the champagne. The beach... More

Every night, the owners transform a rustic beach cabana overlooking a rocky ocean scene into an elegant setting for dinner. We sat overlooking the ocean and full moon and enjoyed a very inventive and delicious meal of 4-5 courses. An unforgettable evening!

We lunched at Rocka on a busy Saturday and enjoyed a meal with friendly, attentive service ... The menu was predominately seafood and was fresh and quality ... It is right on the beach with indoor, which are almost outdoor, and many outdoor tables ... We choose indoor and our only criticism was too many tables crammed in and being... More

I have a beach house in Búzios and every time I go there I spend one or two days at Rocka. The view is magnificent, the service is very good and the beach facilities are superb. Buzios has a few places like this to enjoy the beach. The food and the drinks are excellent too, although a little bit expensive.... More
