“Top Notch Seafood at Reasonable Prices”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We decided to eat here on our recent trip to Buzios after seeing that the restaurant was always busy when open when walking past despite being a short walk away from Rua de Pedras and the main centro area. We were very pleased that we did as the food was nothing short of superb. There is a good range of fresh fish & seafood available prepared in a number of different ways including the Brazilian specialties of moqueca and bobo. We had the latter with prawns for 2 and it was delicious, the number of prawns with the dish was phenomenal and the portion size (as with many places in Brazil) was more than enough.

Being away from the main strip and a being a smaller more rustic setting prices are very reasonable by Buzios standards, added to this the drinks menu is plentiful with beers, wines and spirits all available.

I would definitely go back to O Barco should I ever be lucky enough to find myself in Buzios again. It's the perfect venue for a delicious seafood dinner with a partner with a nice view across the bay/harbour.

“Very good local restaurant ”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed our meal with great local fish and seafood. The portions were large and quality very good. The service was a bit slow otherwise would be excellent.

“Excellent fish”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Among the best lobster and grouper I ever had. Go for the grilled fish/seafood main courses. Definitely the best seafood in Buzios.

“Excellent seafood at a reasonable price”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

We ate at O Barco at lunchtime and again on the same evening as it was really good food at an acceptable price. Wine was only R$40 a bottle, about half the price of most other local restaurants.

“Excellent!!!”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Great simple restaurant with top quality food, reasonable prices, great selection of seafood with a great view to boot. The service was top notch, thank you Fabiano. Is it a surprise that we ended up eating there twice in four nights?
