This is a typical restaurant in Buzios, good food, nice service and right in front of the beach. There was nothing that could make this restaurant any better than the others, it is a fine restaurant, but very average.

The look of this restaurant enticed us towards it. The menu was exciting and the food was amazing - good size portions with plenty of taste. We were met by friendly helpful staff and the services was good. Definitely worth a visit.

We happened upon Bar do Ze for our first dinner out in Buzios. We were one of the first tables taken but it soon filled up and when the food arrived we knew we had made a good choice. Food was fish, in most shapes and sizes and all tasty. Location by the waterfront is very pleasant and service attentive.... More

One of the best restaurants to go for dinner or evening drinks. Lovely decoration, atmosphere and food, both fine seafood dishes and steaks. Great spot.

Lovely restaurant. Charming. Rice w/seafood was delicious; the grilled fish was dried out. We mentioned it to our waiter and they did offer us another dish instead, but we declined.

At first, I thought that Bar do Ze was going to be an unforgettable experience. The menu, sophisticated and yet simple, appeared to be all that one needed for a fabulous meal. However, I could, had I had the material, have read about St Amandus spreading Christianity in 6th Century Europe and still managed to write an essay on it... More

.... like the one I gave Cigalon as both restaurants are undoubtedly "Good" but I just think very good is a little high. According to Trip Advisor feedback this is ranked no 17 and Cigalon 10 but I preferred Rincon (at #64!). There is absolutely nothing wrong with this restaurant and I enjoyed the Red Snapper. I might come back... More
