Cigalon is a cute and cozy restaurant with very nice staff. The food was very good and the location in front of the beach is really nice.

We visited this restaurant on the last night of our holiday in Brazil and despite the great reviews, we were very disappointed. The waiter was at first encounter rude and this continued throughout the meal. All other tables appeared to get appetisers and when we...asked for one, he went to get something and never came back with anything. the food was average for the price but the waiter’s attitude and unpleasantness ruined the evening.More

We booked here but unfortunately the restaurant had a power cut that night so we returned the next evening and thank goodness we did !! We were the first in the restaurant and had a table by the sea. It was idyllic and the food...and service perfect in every way. If in Buzios eat here!More

We sat overlooking the beach at this French restaurant. Although the menu sounds French, it definitely has a touch of Brazilian cuisine about it, with banana pureed potatoes and cassava next to the duck. An enjoyable meal, despite two power cuts during the evening.

This lovely little French inspired restaurant was a suggestion of our hotel owner. We were looking for somewhere a little special to celebrate 30 years of togetherness. Cigalon ticked every box. Food was delicious, location (right by the beach) was spectacular and the service was...exemplary. Our waitress was warmly welcoming, helpful and made every effort to make our lunch special. She even brought us a tasty heart shaped chocolate treat for dessert. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. She is a credit to the restaurant. We will be back I am sure!More

Lunch with a view. And great service plus amazing food.I ordered the blue cheese salad and filet mignon with roasted potatoes. Food was enough for 2 people. We even had a desert and asked the chef to swap over the fruit for bananas and he...agreed. Wine list is also a good one. I will definitely come backMore
