“Great food, great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

One of the best sea-food restaurants I have eaten in, anywhere! We had swordfish in caper butter - delicious! That said, even the steak dishes were superb. One evening the fish we wanted was unavailable, the owner was so apologetic. He suggested an alternative, peeled prawns baked in a spiced garlic oil, and said if we didn't like it we wouldn't have to pay. We paid up happily!
The menu concentrates on simple fresh food cooked perfectly with few fancy sauces, but the port sauce on the Steak Vicente is amazing.
They serve lots of wines of all prices, but the the house Vino Verde is more than adequate at a great price.

So, in summary, great food, good wine, lovely staff, decent prices; why go anywhere else?

“Best seafood restaurant in the area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

It is my second time in Portugal and my second time in this fantastic restaurant! Seafood is delicious! I would highly recommend octopus served with potato, shrimps, clamps and vine verde! Dishes are big! You can easily order one for two people to share. Last time I was here the season was low but still the place was full! I am attaching the photos of octopus and local variant of cataplana

“Great restaurant in Sintra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Very good service,special and very fresh food.
Buzio is the place for fresh sea food: from huge crabs and lobsters, to a good variety of clams, oysters and all sort of fresh catches from the nearby fishing villages. You can also find very good meat.
One of the best restaurants in Portugal.

This is the place to go for decent sea food! Great quality, great service and definitely the place the locals go to! Crowded on weekends - get there early or make reservation!

“It's worth it just for the fish stew!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

A fantastic restaurant that has a great offering of local seafood. The fish stew is particularly good and each time we have been its hard to resist! Our favourite restaurant in the area by far.
