Ordered a penne alla'rabiata. The pasta was mediocre, the tomato sauce was supermarket-bought and I'm still looking for the peppers that were supposed to be in the sauce. Only upside is that it's not expensive.

Perhaps people eat later in Brazil or perhaps it is just a very quiet time of year but the place was completely empty. My daughter had her heart set on a pizza so we went in anyway. The service was good but the food was distinctly second rate. The steak was thin and overcooked. Don't have the pepper sauce it... More

Could not understand why there was a queue outside this particular restaurant most evenings. Yes the prices are certainly below average for the area but the service and the quality of the food was very poor when we had lunch there on our first day in Buzios - must have missed something!!!!!!!

We came to this restaurant in the evening and had a table outside. The prices were very good in comparison to the nearest restaurants. After we ordered the food we noticed that many people came and there was a long queue. We decided that this was because the restaurant is very good. There were approximately 50 people in a queue,...

We walked past here every night and there was literally a queue of no less that 20 people waiting in the street every night for this restaurant. We decided to go for lunch here one day to see what the fuss was about. Inside was fairly rundown and there were lots of flies everywhere! The menu was standard. The service... More

This restaurant (which seems to be a franchise of sorts as there is more than one) had a long line in front of it on three evenings throughout the evening. However, the food was awful, service poor and atmosphere was average. The price was low in comparison to other restaurants in the area. I had steak and it was very... More

Liked the food, especially fish food. Not so brilliant the desserts. Good table service. Price average, not budget. ......
