“Perfect for Snacks and Sun downers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

The restaurant is right on the water and faces the amazing sunsets over tartaruga beach. The rickety wooden deck goes with the lazy vibe and has amazingly comfortable seats with lots of pillows so you can just lounge around sipping cocktails and enjoy the sun. When you get too hot you just walk down the three steps and dip right into the clear blue water.

The staff was happy to just have us take our time and was very pleasant.

We ordered some fries and some shrimps, large portions, though nothing to write home about, great for beach food.

We had a great time and I would really recommend this place to anyone in the area.

Enjoy!

“Less busy than other beaches”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

This beach is flanked by rocks on either side, typical of the beaches around Buzios. Very scenic! Unfortunately there are lots of beach restaurants with people accosting you every few steps to sit down at one of their tables. Only at one end you can sit away from the businesses - and that part is packed. Off season might be better.
