After a day of beach, head to Rua das Pedras, where you will find tons of cute stores (this is the spot to pick up your Brazilian bikini if you don’t already have one!), and TONS of restaurants! Including authentic Brazilian, American, Asian, Mexican, Seafood, and French.
My Favorite place Bar do Ze:
When you walk by Bar do Ze, the first thing that comes to mind is- what a charming, romantic restaurant with a great view of the bay. It is way more than just that! First off, since I am only a few Portuguese classes in, I was pleasantly surprised by the very friendly staff which spoke good English:) Ok, now to the food…
The food was INCREDIBLE!!! We started off with a nice bottle of wine (which isn’t the easiest thing to find in Brazil) and a warm goat cheese salad (perfect way to start a meal in my opinion), but it was the lobster pasta that sealed the deal for me. The huge chunks of fresh delicious lobster in a very light but flavorful tomato sauce was so unbelievably good, my mouth waters whenever I think about it! Mmmmm! On to dessert: Fresh chocolate dipped strawberries with gelato! Honestly doesn’t get much better than this, was a perfect meal, and I plan on going back!
Usually, come 10pm Bar do Ze turns into a more trendy, fun atmosphere, however it started to downpour the night we were there… and when it rains here, it POURS! As you can see the staff was kind enough to ‘make us’ rain coats, and provide a bag so I could ‘save’ my shoes:)
If you find yourself in Buzios… this place is a MUST try!
