We stopped for a snack, prawn empanadas and coconut water. The service was excellent and the empanadas spectacular!

Great empanadas with average prices. Free wifi and menu is in the photos. The seafood comes from the fresh shop in the other side of the street

Sitting a the harbour of porto da barra in buzios is located this restaurant, serving fresh fish, seafood and some meat. We ate empenadas with shrimp, being very good, lagosta with rice and vegetables, filet mignon, and salmon. All were very well prepared and delicious. The view into the ocean is great. We would recommend it. Parking is nearby and... More

This place is close to the fisherman store and in reality, the owners are old fishermen from the village. It serves a very good seafood and the place is ideal to rest and look the wonderfull sunset on the ocean and mountais. Sometimes, sea turtles are visible on the beach.

This simple restaurant served the best food we had in Buzios this time around. Both the moquecas were delicious, generously served. Three people can get fed on one of them. Service was perfect. I strongly recommend it.

Whilst the shack and the seating area doesn't look appealing, after having read reviews we thought we would get some fresh fish/seafood simply cooked. The service was poor and nonchalant, the food below average and the hygiene dodgy. This was a lunch we would rather quickly forget.

Great view and great food. Huge portions, plan to share. Seafood and calamari salads were wonderful. Fried calamari was also very good. Caipirinha was awesome.

A tradicional spot with a nice beach view. Bar dos Pescadores serves great moquecas and fried fishes. It's perfect for a late evening meal. The service is not very good.

Moqueca de Peixe (steak) was amazing. Great choice. Prawns' pastel is delicious as a starter. It is a busy restaurant. However, staff should be a little more polite and complete the service before kicking customers out handling the bill without being asked. I wasnt offered the menu for deserts neither had the chance to order a coffee.
