“Soffy but this is a joke”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014 via mobile

This place was recommended by the lovely B and B I stayed at.
I had bruschetta, which was really very average.
I then had lamb with risotto, and absolutely nothing else.
The meat was nice but the helping was minuscule. The risotto was, at best, bland.
The wine was a household Malbec, charged at above London or NYC prices.
At the end of the meal I asked to see the manager, and told him the meal was poor and way overpriced. I am not sure, that he completely understood what he said, but his comment was : I agree but this is Buzios.
I pointed out, that the previous evening their next door competitor, Salt, had served a much better meal, at a much lower price. The manager responded, that they had been in business for 15 years, while Salt was much newer and therefore had to offer a much better quality versus price etc. To sum it up, avoid Bar do Ze and enjoy Salt!

“Excellent food and nice atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

I tried many of the so called best restaurants in Buzios but until dinning here I wasn't impressed with the overall dinning experience in any of the restaurants. This restaurant should be in the top 10.

“Could have been a lot better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

Very well located and looks really good, although i think its a bit dark what makes difficult to read the menu. My dish was not terrific, prawns were overcooked and lobster was burnt... (Dont want comment about the loos) definitely could have been a lot better ...

“Disappointing ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

Overpriced, burnt Lagosta not really a good evening overall.

However that is the case for most of the Restaurants in Buzios which say they are International but are patently not....

I will not be returning
