Buzio has closed its doors, we found it out by experience... Soon we found that chef Gato has opened a new restaurant named "hexagone" near Carvoeiro.. We went there and gave it a try...the location is worse, as it has no view! Te place inside looks much better than the old one..more up to date, more modern. Food is still... More

We wanted to eat at "Buzio" due to its great write-ups! However, having tried to book for several days I have spoken to the owner, who has informed me that Buzio is no longer open for business. He has moved to a new Restaurant near Ferragudo, called "Hexegon and started afresh there! So if you are getting nowhere, whilst trying... More

Just to inform everyone that I'm not running Buzio Restaurant anymore and that so far it is closed. I moved together with my time to a new restaurant located between Ferragudo and Carvoeiro following the same concept and phylosophy. Looking forward to your visit.

Superb Service, superb setting, superb food, just what can you ask for better. March 2012, we were checking if Canico Restauant was open, but found itwas too early in the season, but instead went to Buzio, a fantastic experience all around, and great value for the fixed price menu

Lovely location but the food wasn't special, ice but NOT special as advertised, pretty average really. Not to the same high standard of food as Canico Restaurant just around the corner, much better deal.

This restaurant is not to be missed! The panoramic views when the sun is setting are spectactular. The food is excellent - great flavour combinations cooked to perfection and a large wine list to accompany. Most impressive, however, are the staff. They are professional, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable, guiding you around the impressive wine list and choice of foods. I... More

We chose Buzio for a special night out after being there for a wedding last year. The food last year was spectacular and we hoped that the normal menu would be at the same high standard. We were not disappointed! The entire restaurant has a quality feel about it and the little touches by the chef and staff add to... More

Nine of us went there last night for a meal and everyone thought the food was fantastic. It is a bit more expensive but worth every euro.you are getting fine dining for the price of a very ordinary restaurant in England. Our bill came to 62 Euros per person including the tip. We all had wine with our meal. Some... More

This is the best quality restaurant in Alvor. Stunning view across the bay to Lagos and the sunset and wonderful "Michelin" type food. Run by owner / chef Gilberto and an excellent professional staff. Do go there !
