A Must in Buzios

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... read more

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...

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

Located on the rock cliffs over looking one of Buzios many beaches , this lunchtime only eatery serves the freshest of food using local ingredients where possible. Wonderful ceviche , potato bravas, fish of the day which tends to run out quickly and great drinks too ! Wonderful ocean views that come with a breeze will make for a great... 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!!!

Rocka beach is located overlooking one of the most beautiful beaches in Buzios, with a breathtaking view and very mellow vibe. Service was outstanding, warm and welcoming, and the food was simply the best we've had in Brazil. Absolutely delicious and creatively presented. Rocka is a Must on your To Do when in Buzios!!

While staying in Buzios this was by far our favorite restaurant and beach. Rocka is right on one of the nicest beaches on the peninsula. As part of the "club" you get a lounge bed that can either comfortably have 2 or 4 people depending on which size you go for. Food and drink service straight to your lounger if... More

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
