Eaten here only 4-6 times over the course of 5 years. Every time I go I am impressed with the quality of the flavour of the dishes and the variety. Today I went, filled my plate with their delicious feijoada and rice, salads etc....but I didn't like the look of all the meats. I went for two types of chicken... More

We were in Búzios in January 2016. Went for lunch at Caverna! Food is fresh, and they have a great selection of salads, meat as well as beans! If you want to eat local, this is the place to go. From beans to sushi and camarão. Delicious!

Went in, attracted by the smell of the buffet. Great dishes, some very elaborate. Per kilo system is great for families, each one eats what he wants. Simple but cozy atmosphere and very friendly service. We went back there two more times in our one week stay, and being a foodie that says enough.

Caverna has become our new "go to" spot in Buzios. Food is great (I love Minero-style cooking - it is homemade goodness), selection is good, and price is better than other nearby "buffets by the kilo" in Buzios. Nothing fancy, just good food at a good price. Desserts are also set out for you to add to your plate. Yum!... More

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2011

I agree with the previous review, a simple but cozy place with very good food. Was R$29.90 per kilo (about US$8 per pound).for traditional Brazilian food from the interior state of Minas Gerais (Cozinha Minero). Black beans & rice, various salads and vegetables (okra, eggplant, green beans, peas & carrots, etc.). We arrived late afternoon (~3pm) and the food was... More

Looks a bit like a small church in fresh colors . Specialized in food from Minas Gerais. The selection is not huge but I found it very good. The potato-puree was the best I have ever tasted. This is a buffet-restaurant and you pay by the kilo, 30 Real ( less than 20 USD). If You are very hungry this... More
