Great location, wonderful ambience, friendly and very helpful staff and great food (octopus with potato and their various ice creams are especially worth a mention). Highly recommended, we liked it so much last night we are returning for dinner today.

My boyfriend (now fiancee) took me here for dinner back in April, and it was memorable for a number of reasons. The food is absolutely delicious, and we had a table right at the front of the restaurant overlooking the water. The ambiance was wonderful...More

We eat here every time we get to Buzios. It's always excellent. Wonderful home made ice cream for dessert

Cigalon is a restaurant with a very nice atmosphere, service and food to go in the summer or the winter. The food is wonderful. Good place for a romantic dinner.

Had a wonderful lunch, at a waterside table. The ceviche de camarao was wonderful. Despite its location and Bardot associations, it was not especially touristy -- we will return before we leave Buzios.

The food is amazing, I recommend the brandade de bacalhau, it is just perfect! For dessert we had profiteroles and they were by far the best I have ever had! The staff is also very polite! Loved it!

We discovered this smallish restaurant on our second last night in Buzios and had such a great meal that we returned for our last night and had an equally good meal though obviously different food. The entrance to the restaurant is quite narrow and perhaps...More
