Where do I start? Rocka's in a delightful beautiful bay which was wonderful to sit and gaze at. I've never seen so much champagne being consumed - we seemed to be one group in a few not to! We should have gone earlier and used the loungers scattered around the place prior to lunch. I'm glad we booked as it was busy for lunch (would have preferred dinner but it doesn't open in the evenings in winter and we wouldn't have had the view!). English is spoken by most of the staff so no issues on understanding the specials of the day. They were attentive and helpful and easy to attract when you wanted something (that's unusual in Buzios!). So we have a great view, surroundings and staff and then there's the food! WOW! The catch of the day, tuna, scallops and the pork were all wonderfully cooked, beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Four assorted and equally fantastic sweets later, with a coffee to follow - what a great lunch. With a bottle of Sauvignon blanc and many waters we were UK pounds 150 for lunch. Not for the financially faint hearted but well worth it. I'd like to say I'll be back but it's a long way from home and I can only wish. Do go and try, you won't be disappointed!

Terrific restaurant at Brava!
We have been going there for some time. But this last June we could not get enough of the food at Rocka. Mia was a gracious server although everyone that worked there was nice and attentive. Santiago and the Chef make a great team and serve up some of the best food in Buzios coupled with the best view and people watching spot. Great body surfing spot too...
If I had to make one suggestion it would be get some cloth napkins, paper is just not good enough for that food!
Keep up the great menu! we will be back.

Rocka bar and rock a fish restaurant are the place to be for a relaxed day at the beach in buzios. Nice atmosphere, great service and excellent food. We had fresh oysters from the oyster man; they were amazing. Together with a bottle of chandon and one of the lounge beds we had a great afternoon. It's only open from 10am to 5pm. So go for lunch or a very early dinner.
Sun is gone behind the hill at 4.30 anyway.
Make sure you reserve one of the beds in advance.
Music was a bit dull for our taste. Sometimes too loungy.
Beach is small but nice.

Despite only having a small lunch here, and despite the rather steep prices for beer, the lobster salad and codfish balls were top drawer and haven't eaten better anywhere else! The service was brisk but attentive and although a small bustling but basic eating area, the quality of the food was astounding. Will definitely return for more, if not for the small beach.
