A wonderful experience at the Ossos end of Buzios, perhaps a half hour´s walk from the centre of town, along the Bardot promenade to where the shops and restaurants are less jazzy and more authentic. This is a gem and a nugget. A tapas bar...More

As French citizens, we chose this restaurant (my in-law already ate there several times). The location is perfect because you are in a calm part of Buzios, far away from crowd and noise. The decoration of the restaurant is lovely and sober. Staff is welcoming...More

Didn't like the food at all. We ordered 6 different plates, and only the chicken was good, the rest was tasteless. Capirinha was good!!

Lovely bistro with a french touch and friendly owners. Had a great time, great meal and a great talk with everybody. Everything is "maison", i.e. house made, and you should try the patés and terrines. fish, locust, octopus... very good.

A place who will not destroy Brazilian seafood. Reasonable prices for the one that pays happily for a good meal. And for that I mean not only excellent ingredients and owner-personal attention, also the chef mixes local products with slight touches of French cuisine. After...More
