Good food, friendly staff, wonderful ocean view, special treats if you want to spend time for nothing - just feeling the horizon. The bad point was a bad smell coming from the WC once in a while depending on the wind. Despite the smell We were able to spend more than three hours under the ombrelones mattress.

Loved it! Great location with amazing views on the beach and sea. Food was absolutely great, the best we had at Buzios with great service. Prices are a bit high but quality - price ratio is good on average 85 real for a main course.

The unique setting is just the beginning. Imagine each course surpasses your expectations leaving you wanting more. As many have before us, Rocka is a Buzios must visit. Rocka is a perfect helicopter lunch stop from Rio de Janeiro.

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. We followed this with Sea Urchin and fresh shucked oysters. 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.
