I was fortunate enough to stop by Lorenzo's for lunch after enjoying a morning cruise with my wife and in-laws. The restaurant was very quiet with only a few other couples in this largish, but friendly and charming environment.

My wife and I chose steak platter for two, and the in-laws 'churrasco para dois'. Service was quick and very friendly, our waiter was a great laugh and a pleasure to be around. Considering the steak platter was a very reasonably R$80 for around 10oz each of top quality beef, with chips, faroffa and vinegrete included, it was simply stunning. The juices were superb and the steak cooked to perfection. My in-laws could only speak highly of their meal too so the food was certainly 5 star in my book. However, we were dining at lunch which appears to be the best time to dine, as this place is mobbed for dinner service. Perhaps previous reviews for dinner service concerning the average speed of service and quality of dishes is justified, so keep in mind. For us, we really enjoyed our meal: a taste sensation in a nice atmosphere and at a leisurely pace, and can only recommend a visit if you're in Buzios.

Lorenzo looked promising from the outside, but once we ordered our drinks and food, we realised we would be disappointed by just browsing other people's plates.
The restaurant is quite nice, with lots of space, and well decorated, but the service was less the average and the food disappointing. We were three and only two of us ordered food. My mother in law decided she wanted to eat somewhere else, but even though we decided to order the seafood pasta which had lots of past and very very little of seafood in it. For R$ 49.00 (£17.00), we believe it could have a better presentation and taste. Overall, I think Buzios offers other options with the same prices but with more quality

Just an average italian - not especially good. Just better go to DECK - better views, service, and much better food!

We went there twice. First time, we were almost alone and the food came quickly and was delicious. Second time, with more people in the place, we took more than one hour to receive our dishes. So, if it's empty, go there. Otherwise, don't.
