“Very nice, if you can afford it!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

It's definitely the nicest day-time spot in buzios to grab a glass of champagne and have a delicious lunch. Slightly more expensive than the other places, but at least you get quality and the service is very good.
The view is amazing, and we'd highly recommend you take one of the loungers and hang out in the sun for a bit before or after lunch!

“A cool, relaxed beach restaurant offering first class food”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We couldn't speak more highly of this restaurant. Located overlooking the beautiful Praia Brava, the location is excellent, service fantastic & suitable for the relaxed beach setting whilst the food is first class. We ate here on five occasions over eight days in March 2013 and each lunch could not be faulted. The beds overlooking the beach to relax upon post lunch were a treat. The attention to detail from Santiago and his team set this restaurant apart and we would fully recommend a trip. Over the past twelve months we've eaten at top London restaurants, eg Heston Blumenthal's Dinner & Nobu, and the food at Rocka would beat them all!!

“The meals look and taste like in a first class restaurant”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

The restaurant is situated next to the Brava beach and has a great view.
We were recommended this restaurant on our first day by a hotel manager but managed to come here only on the seventh day of our holidays in Buzios.
We came in the afternoon because were told the day before that the restaurant doesn't work in the evening , after 5 pm. I guess they close earlier in march but not sure.
The food is tasty and fresh but not very cheap. The dinner for 2 with 2 main courses and 2 desserts plus 3 beers cost approx 120 USD. Sure it's not a fortune but still...
I will sure recommend this place to those who stay not far from Brava beach and who likes sea food and good service. The meals here are prepared as in hi-class restaurant though it is just a restaurant near the beach with ordinary tables and cutlery.

“Trendy beach club feel with excellent food!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We booked a table and were given a bed for the day which is on a grassy hill looking down onto Barra Beach. The service was excellent with waiters being very attentive and offering very quick service even as the place got very busy in the afternoon. The view of the beach is lovely and you can walk down the grass on to the beach to cool down in the sea. It is a champagne bar but there are plenty of other drinks alcoholic and non alcoholic. The food at lunch was one of the best meals I had in my 2 weeks in Suth America. My husband and I ordered different fish dishes and they were both incredible. I couldn't find a single flaw with this place. It's a must do while in Buzios!
