Super awesome atmosphere and decoration. Live music was great!! Our waiter was really friendly and so was the bartender. They were pretty busy and our food came pretty quickly. Everything tasted great!

Mexican food is my favourite and i was not disappointed. I recommend the fajitas, the vegetarian burrito or the chicken quesadilla. The pineapple mint juice is good too. Very fun atmosphere and service was great. We visited twice in our 5 day stay because it was tasty!

The title pretty much says it all. We enjoyed a pleasant evening at this establishment. The service was good, the ambience was great, but the food was 'only just'. I've had nicer burritos and nachos out of my own kitchen. That's not to say they were bad but there is definitely room for improvement.

Really good band playing and decor attracted us in. Had a good service and food experience. Other people in my party not so complimentary about their food but I can only rate this on my own experience.

Mr Brad's is a great restaurant - the cool decor being what originally drew us to the restaurant, however it was the tasty food and quick service that had us come back a second time! I am vegetarian and had a handful of options to choose from, settling on the burrito, which did not disappoint! The service was quick and... More

Mr. Brad is a great choice for a wonderful dinner. Upon our arrival we were greeted and seated quickly. It was a little chilly so we decided to sit inside. This seem to be a good idea as there was entertainment that evening and it would've been a little loud to sit any closer to the Samba band. The drinks... More

What can I say, out of all the restaurants in Buzios, I am missing the lively atmosphere, the great food and the fantastic manager/waiter (pictured) that Mr Brad offered. Unsure of where to dine on our second evening, we used Trip Advisor to help us and our choice did not disappoint, so much so that we visited Mr Brad on... More

Brads was fantastic! The menu is huge - so big it is hard to choose, the range is great from simple dishes to massive tex mex platters! The service is superb and there was live music whilst we were there and even a visit from Santa! Christmas Eve it was easily the busiest restaurant in Buzios and we didn't bother... More
