We were back to Búzios and back to Xavier's Bistro. So good to see the French Chef Xavier at the Bistro coming to talk to us on the table and giving suggestions in what to eat! It feels so personal ! It's a small and cozy bistro and the food is excellent! We had the best filet!

Having read the excellent reviews on this restaurants I was keen to try the food here and was disappointed. We shared a Singapore Prawn starter, which was nothing special. We both ordered steaks for our main course and mine came still wrapped in string! There were only a few tables taken whilst we were there and the service was slow.

Stylish little restaurant set on the corner of the Square.

Food was excellently cooked and well presented. We had a delicious seafood risotto washed down with an excellent bottle of wine. The prices were reasonable.

We really enjoyed our visit.

Limited choice of like 12 dishes, but all of them sound good. Dishes to share for 2 for 60 reals, which is good (don't forget the mandatory 10% tip). Had pasta with seafood, and pasta with mushrooms, both very good. Just not the best rating as it took about 25 min for the food to come. It seemd normal for them that there was only 1 person serving, for 8 tables..

I went here for the first time in November 2012, and have gone back every time I've been in Búzios since then (a total of four times). The food is outstanding (especially the specialties) and is prepared and served with care. Pricing is fair and absolutely worth every centavo.

We used to eat mediocre meals at the tourist traps in Búzios, but now our trips to Buzios would be worthwhile even if it were just because of our meal at Xavier's.
