This is our favourite restarant in Buzios, after several visits. The quality of the food, wine and service is excellent. We have always had the Menu du Jour, 3 courses at a good price. We love it.

Don't follow the map, the address is wrong. The name of the street is Rua das Pedras, 199 - Centro - Praia do Canto The food is excellent, good location and fantastic view.

There are two legal addresses, one of them is Avenida Jose Bento Ribeiro Dantas, the other, well known is Rua das Pedras, not official name, but best known , both with the number 199. Best regards and thank you for your comments.
