Lovely place with friendly staff. We were on a big group and everyone was happy with their food. I asked for lagosta do ze, the house lobster. Boy, what a huge thing! Done with herbs butter and delicious.

The restaurant has an increadable view. Super romatic - a cute little place to have lunch or dinner.

Bar do Ze is a tradicional restaurant in Buzios. It is very expensive but the atmosphere well come you, the service is very good and you will feel like you are at home. The food is something you can't miss, delicious, tasteful and looks nice. The wine is too expensive, better have one of their drinks. Save some space for... More

A cool environment and a tasty food. Great staff. I will come back to try other options. It's a bit pricy but as we had good recommendations we decided to go and was worth it. Some of the portions are easily shareable.

Right on the waterfront in Buzios this is one of many restaurants trying to get your trade of an evening. We chose this restaurant as it was busier than most and we had been next door having a drink and heard people talking about the quality of food. It's not cheap but we fancied Italian style food and I have... More

This is a typical restaurant in Buzios, good food, nice service and right in front of the beach. There was nothing that could make this restaurant any better than the others, it is a fine restaurant, but very average.

The restaurant has a good vibe and looks really appealing. Staff is nice but not too enthusiastic about the food. Food was OK but but focus rather on quantity than quality and unusual food combinations. Although for us (Europeans) perhaps it is common in Brazil. Example: salmon with mushroom fettuccine. Food quality - price ratio was not so good. ~... More

Fish is decent in this restaurant but pricy (80-100 reals!) but salads are horrendous and an absolute rip-off. Leaves weren't even cleaned and still had sand in them... Pears and goat cheese are terribly unauthentic. Service is incredibly long (we waited 40mn even though we were the only customers!)

Bar do Zé is the typical place I would consider overrated, but I couldn't be more wrong. Besides impeccable service and great drinks (I know this is Brazil, but I highly recommend their Mojitos), the food is perfect. With a good variety, their seafood dishes are fantastic, the fish is fresh and the meals are memorable even if they aren't... More
