“Best value in Buzios for a quiet romantic tete a tete”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Cigalon has excellent italian / brazilian food and impeccable and professional service.
The tables outside overlook the town beach with lots of colourful local fishing boats moored.
A very romantic setting especially when the moon is full.
The set menu is excellent value for such well cooked and stylishly served food.

“First night in Buzios we dined at Cigalon”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

This is a beautiful, cozy restaurant in the heart of the central area. After checking out all trip advisor and my families love of all things french we headed to Cigalon. Being winter we had the place mostly to ourselves and sat at a wonderful table overlooking the bay. They have a regular menu and a price fixed offer and my family of four all chose differently. We ordered a nice white wine from Argentina. Dinner was wonderful and our service was just right. We all enjoyed tasting each others food and tried hard to determine who had ordered "best". In the end we decided it was a tie all around. Later one day I stopped in for an expresso and just hung out why the ladies all shopped. Very nice retreat for the men during the day.

“Delicious food!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

My husband and I went to Cigalon based on reviews and we are very happy we did. The food was absolutely delicious. We both had three courses and each course got better and better. I ordered profiteroles for dessert and it was without a doubt the best dessert I have ever tasted! They looked like typical profiteroles but weren't actually profiteroles. I would go back again purely based on that dessert even if everything else was awful...which it wasn't. Far from it actually! We loved it! It's located in the town and has quite a small door and sign therefore it could be missed. The restaurant inside is cosy and romantic. A perfetc honeymoon dinner!

“twice nice”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Ate there for the second time in a month. Last time, there were 8 of us, 5 this time (or 7, as we ran into friends having diner and had dessert together). Great view, lovely atmosphere, and the food was excellent both times.
