The food is just amazing. Service was not a good experience. My table was dirty and the waiter was kinda disrespectful sometimes. Maybe I was not lucky. I strongly suggest the feijoada.

From the moment we were greeted outside until we left, this was a delightful experience. White linen tablecloths, well-dressed servers, a great menu and even better wine selection. This is on a corner and we sat outside to watch all of the activities going by in the cobblestone streets. My boyfriend said it was the best mahi-mahi he had ever... More

The beef is excellent as well as is the seafood. I have never had a "bad meal" at this restaurant and we have gone many times

I have been visiting Buzios for many years. Each time i never miss eating at Restaurante David. One block off the main street in Centro. Fernando (the owner) is always friendly and visits your table while you eat to make sure everything is OK. Great staff and moderate pricing.

It is close to Rua das Pedras, but away from the most noble location. Expect paper tablecloth, poor wine list etc. service is efficient. Go for the moquecas. Serves 2-3 persons, and are delicious. Remember that parking could be an issue (as in all Rua das Pedras region).

It's very close to Rua das Pedras, in a simple house. They have seafood as specialty but we choose meet "Picanha na brasa", which came with rice, french fries and farofa with vinagrete. The food was good and the dishes for two people to share have good price.

This restaurant was recommended to us from our hotel Perola in Buzios from the bartended Carlos! I ordered the Moqueca fruto do mar for 2 for the 3 of us and it was more than enough and it was delicious.

Sit outside if you can -- the atmosphere is a little fluorescent inside. We had the seafood stewed in wine sauce and shrimp in coconut sauce, both excellent.
