It was a surprise a great surprise to see how the daughter of a fisherman embraced her culture and transform a daily sea food caught by their family in a sophisticated dishes. The Chef Danila dos a great job creating new dishes and teaching the kids from Buzios at the restaurant, also a chance to pass the knowledge she developed for future generations from Buzios.
I do recommend you request Kiko the manager to teach you his delicious caipirinha recipes. It is a great Brazilian drinking class and you also can received a certificated of a Brazilian Caipirinha expert. You will love to learn the traditional caipirinha + the other spicy flavors added by Kiko. Its a great opportunnity to make some videos and share with your friends and family. I loved it.
My suggestions: Start your experience at velho do Mar with a Calamari with manioc flower staffed, caipirinha drinks, Brazilian pastries and them go for a special fish with a black rice, salad and shrimp Moqueca.
The house also serves awesome craft beers and you need to ask Kiko about the beers of the week. There some good selections.
Some surprises for the Ice cream, I will let you discover yourself.
The restaurant is a small place, very cozy and familiar. I would suggest you to go for a dinner, because the time the restaurant prepares the food you can check the Gorgeous sunset at the pier. This is the famous spot for a sunset in Buzios.
Enjoy the paradise of Buzios and let me know your opinion.

Kiko was a great host and taught us many things about the Caipirinha, Brazil's national cocktail. I won't tell his secrets, go there and find out yourself. This is a small, intimate restaurant. Details and freshness are very important to Kiko. This is a must visit if you are in the area.

This was may 3rd trip to Buzios and by far this was was the best meal yet. As a matter of fact, I would place it in the top 10 of my dining experiences around the world. They have a passion for the dishes they create. They are highly selective on the quality of the fresh ingredients they prepare. Each dish (and caipirinha :) ) are signature culinary presentations. Can't wait to go back !!!
