After an amazing meal at Salt the previous night, our experience at Bar do Ze, just down the road, with the same pretty location, was such a contrast.

We were lured in by a friendly smiling young lady, whose sole role (often with one of the male waiters) was to lure people in, and were seated at the table by the door outside, just close to where she stood to do this. Once seated, she didn't want to have anything to do with us, despite us trying to catch her eye and wave to her numerous times.

We ordered the ceviche starter, which came out alarmingly quickly after ordering it, before the wine we'd ordered had had a chance to be sent to the table. It was ok, very acidic, lemon juice used rather than the traditional lime. Our main courses were nice, snapper with olives, tomato and capers - and snapper with calamari and tomato. There was a mix up with our side orders and these didn't arrive until we'd almost finished our fish, as our waitress was so busy elsewhere.

Our waitress, who was lovely, was completely overworked attending to all the outdoor colleagues, when her male counterpart spent most of the evening standing with and talking to the lady who was trying to draw people in.

Our table was clear and we waited - and waited - and waited - nothing happened, no offer of dessert and so unable to attract the attention of the lady mentioned above, who was less than 2 metres from me, I got up asked for the bill and told her how disappointed we were with the service - meaning her disinterest once we were seated. What was even more disappointing was she said she would speak to the waitress.

A more expensive meal than Salt - service not a patch on Salt (I did pity our waitress) - followed by food poisoning during the night.

We ate here on two nights. The food was good and the setting, overlooking the bay in Buzios, was very scenic and created a nice atmosphere at the restaurant

Nice restaurant located along the front. Definately the best meal we had in Buzios although a little pricier than some along the sea front. Nice little bar on the outside deck with great cocktails and good service. Restaurant had good atmosphere for romantic dining and the food was excellent. Prices are a little higher than some but all restaurants in the area are more expensive than the average. Paid around £100 for two but that included a good few cocktails and wine. Would recommend for an intimate dining experience in a great location.

The portions are not big, but the prices are high. Almost 50 dollars for 5 shrimps and half of baked potatoe with cheese.
If you don't care of the cost you can certainly go there. The quality is good and atmosphere is pleasant.
