Anderson & Bruno took great care of us with recommendations of food and drink selections. Starters of cheese board (8 different cheeses and toasted bread) & Salad.

For dessert (several): a selection on multiple ice creams (Acai, Orange, Pistachio, & Vanilla) , a Sugar cone with cinnamon ice cream, and... More

Today we enjoyed nice lunch. Salad and catch of the day very nicely done. Staff is friendly though not always that clear. They offered a limoncello, but then it showed up on the bill...only point of improvement.

The food was amazing!!! We ordered the risotto with the fish of the day and it tasted really good. We also ordered the rice pudding and we wanted to keep asking for more. The view was incredibly and the staffed were really friendly.

Great place with a spectacular view. The food was very good. The drinks were great as was the service. Good place for fish and views. Very outdoor airy eating environment. If you are looking for some great outdoor dining on a hillside overlooking the ocean then this is the place.

We spent a few hours here relaxing on the loungers, enjoying the beach and their great food. The food menu is very interesting (mostly fish and seafood) and everything was delicious. It seems slightly more relaxed than the beach club next door.

The restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel staff at Porto Bay. It is a relaxed quite trendy place above the beach. We started off with what proved to be the best Caipirinha cocktails of our entire holiday to Rio / Buzios. Suitably relaxed we tucked into some very fine quality food indeed. This is “proper” food and priced... More
