There are very few vegetarian (or vegan) specialist restaurants, despite the breadth of the eatery scene in Buzios.
But here´s one; an oasis of calm high above the daily hubbub, and a chance to relax and enjoy excellent value by-the-weight vegetarian - or vegan - home cooking.
You enter through a hippy shop selling incense sticks, Buddhist literature, yoga guides and all things alternative, and you ascend dark wooden steps to the first floor, including a balcony table where you can look down on the people scurrying around like ants.
Nirvana is remarkable value.
My by-the-weight meal of quiche on a biscuit base, avocado salad and rocket worked out at uner 10 reals, and was very filling.
My dining companion went for an aubergine bake and salad, and also pronounced himself content.
We shared a cacao and banana flan for pud.
The meal selection isn´t vast; it covers all the salad and rice salad bases, but isn´t so extensive that you have to dither.
But what it does do, it does well.
A modest, unpretentious restaurant catering to a neglected group in this holiday town.
And a green Buddha statue stands guard, wisely and reassuringly.
It is open from midday to 10pm.
