I had good experience having dinner at Buda. The waiters are very friendly and the second time I went there one of the waters had lived in Boston for many years so english wasn't a barrier.
The location is amazing at Rua das Pedras and the decoration is inspiring.
The only downside is if you order one of their deals. They claim it comes enough food for two people but it's not true. After our the entre we ordered appetizer because we were still hungry.
If you go there you must order a Passion Fruit Caipirinha (with cachaca), it's the best.

First of all, the location is amazing and the place is big, but that's the only great thing about this restaurant draft, because it's impossible to call that a restaurant, it's merely a draft, something raw, incomplete.

The service, the few waiters that are available seems to be daydreaming, because you almost have to climb on your chair and scream so that maybe, maybe they will see you. The service is very slow, it took ages to get my orders and ages to bring the bill. Just ridiculous.

The food, the portions are ridiculous for the price they ask. The salmon was overcooked and with burnt taste. The shrimps that goes with the salmon are ridiculously small. They also sell a 500g plate of shrimps for R$100 where more than half of that is shell and head, ridiculous.

The price, plain simple ridiculous for what they offer. There are many other restaurants in this area where you can eat more, better and pay the same or even less.

All in all, just DO NOT go in there, a waste of time and money.

We had the best paella I can remember: soft, tasty, spicy, not salty; the rice was cooked at the exact point with a variety of exquiste seafood. A huge portion to share between two people and more. Dessert was an enormous sundae with fresh fruit at the bottom, three scoops of fruit ice cream topped with whipped cream. Almost impossible to finish! Excellent service and decoration of the premises. Disadvantage: the high prices.

Honestly, its been a long time that i wasnt disapointed like that. Not good at all. Bad service, horrible food, the place look nice but apart of that it was one of the worst experience of my life.

Been here with a large group of people. Unlike other negative reviews, the service was ok, people were friendly. The quality of the food, however, was not so good. Paella not very tastfull, pizza the same. On the other hand the live music was very good. But eventually, it is the food quality that matters!
