“We went twice. Says it all.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

From the free Caipirinha to the best shrimp in Buzios, you won't be disappointed. Located across from Mr. Brad's, you also get to hear the great music but have a much better meal. Everything is good here and the wait staff is the best in the city. Also, very reasonably priced. Can't say enough good things.

“Just because it's popular dosen't mean it's good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We thought that as this restaurant was so busy, it must be good. Wrong! Below average steak - gristly and overcooked - huge portions of tastless rice - average salads. Nothing to go back for.

“Arrive hungry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

My wife and I came here on our first night in Buzios . The atmosphere is very busy and lively. Our prtions were massive. I had the filet mignon fransesca. The steak was as a big as my fist and was cooked medium rare who I wanted it . My wifes fish was also very good. Good for families and couples wanting a hefty meal.

“Reliable Food, Friendly Waiters, Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

We always try to eat one meal at Restaurante Davide when we are in Buzios. The waiters are all very jolly and provide great service starting with a complimentary capraihina. The outdoor tables are great for people watching as its central location causes a continuing parade of passersby. The food is always excellent with large portions. Fish a specialty. Been in a business for a long time so that speaks volumes. Give it a try.

“Lovely place for a meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Resturant David is an old style place in buzios that with traditional style and lovely generous portions. The service was good and the prices representative of the quality.

The mussels and the catch of the day were both done to perfection!!
