The food is very nice and they have a wide range of risottos. Everything was good and our large group enjoyed our dinner. This restaurant is near the waterfront but does not face the water,however, had a good atmosphere.

We had a blast! A very nice restaurant in Porto da Barra, a fresh new place in Buzios away from all the fuzz of Rua das Pedras. We wanted to try the risottos, because we were told they were the best dishes they had. We were a party of 7 and asked for 5 different risottos! I tried a bit... More

If you like risotto, you must visit here. The risotto is superb! Seafood is also fabulous and fresh, and they can cook a steak. Great wine list and friendly service. Excellent experience

Situated inBarra outside Buzios Town, it is in a small port area away from the he noise and hassle of Buzios. It's also cheaper and better value,... More

We were impressed with the staffs attempt to help us to translate the menu. To the extent that the chef came out, who spoke good English to help us with our final choice. The salmon risotto with apricot jelly was perfectly cooked with the rice being slightly al-dente. Good choice of wine and friendly attentive waiters, the restaurant was well... More

A friend recommended Zuza for our visit to Buzios and we would recommend it too. Zuza himself welcomed us and we liked the table in a pleasant sheltered area, airy but covered, with wooden tables and chairs. As the restaurant filled up it became pleasantly buzzy but never too loud. We started with pockets filled with shrimp served with home... More

I would agree with the previous review of this restaurant. The waitress tried really hard to please and the restaurant itself had a lovely atmosphere. However our starter of beef spring rolls was extremely small and tasteless and my pistachio coated fish was overcooked, albeit it tastey. On the other hand my husband´s octapus was very good. Expensive for what... More
