This is in the old district where Italian families settled here in the late 1800's, Santa Felicidade. The restaurant is family owned following the tradition for générations.
it is a sumptuous place richly decorated and friendly service. We were a party of 12 there and all was perfect

Olha, sinceramente falando. Não é porque é minha mãe; mas a mulher cozinha moooooooito.
Tem uma mão abençoada por Deus e ganhou um brinde, que é as mãos de meu pai. Que cozinha que é uma beleza!
Então não percam!

This place is just great. A family runs the restaurant and it is very popular with the locals who frequently eat lunch here. The service is buffet style which is very common in Southern Brazil. This is great because you pay for your food by the kelo. Tip: Do not load you plate full of heavy potatos because you will pay to eat something that is very cheap. Instead pick things that have value for their weight.
Favorite Dish: Everything is good!
Brazilian fast food chain Habib's, which began as a store selling Arab specialties,was founded in 1988. Operating under franchising since 1991, the chain had a structureconsisting of 60 franchised units and 45 own stores at the end of 1998. Ten years afterthe beginning of its activities, Habib's takes second place in the national ranking of foodfranchises (a revenue of R$ 120 million in 1997), losing only to McDonald's (R$ 480million).
--------------------------------------------------------------One of Habib's goals is to ally the quality of its products and services to attractiveprices. products - Habib's bread (hamburger, Syrian bread and pizza),with cheese and ice cream to dessert
Favorite Dish: I love "Beirute" sandwich ( syrian bread with cheddar cheese , salad , egg,roast beef, etc)
fruits juice are very good , to dessert the "cremino "is a delicious with chocolate and ice cream choco and cream with cherry's liqueur :-P
Portuguese cuisine, left over from the colonical days is still present in Brazil. In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, one canfind Portuguese food in a number of traditional restuarants, such as this traditional Portuguese style restaurant in Botafogo. Adega do Valentim is well away from the tourist traffic, and it serves excellent traditional dishes, like bacalhão, in the Portuguese style.
Adega means wine cellar, and this place has an excellent selection of Portuguese reds as well as imported ports to enjoy with your meal. The owner,Sr. Valentim Monteiro dos Santos is himself an immigrant from Portugal, and he runs a great casual and comfortable restaurant. This is a place for locals, and it is located in a safe area.
Favorite Dish: Bacalhão is a staple for the Portuguese, but less so for the Brazilians. The Bacalhão (dried salted cod) casserole shown in the picture is considered a delicacy, and it does take considerable time to prepare. The cod must be soaked overnight, and then mixed with the potatoes and seasonings before it is baked. A bacalhão casserole like the one shown is always served proudly, with the waiter showing the patrons the beauty of the prepared dish before serving.
The Portuguese desserts are also a treat, as they feature such delicacies as baba de moça and barriga de freira. (Look these up in the dictionary)
Not the cheapest eatery in town, but a relaxed, clean spot downtown Buzios with excellent and varied food to tempt your hunger and beyond. Well, most buffet places may prove the eyes to be larger than the stomach.
Not all-you-can-eat style but pay-by-weight, which is not uncommon throughout Brazil.
Especially for those who hesitate before a menu, sight ans smell always works great. Shouldn't the buffet be enough - and yes, it certainly is - there's also an attended grill section and even a sushi-bar where the chef wears a kimono.
As a reference, I had quite a large plate and a beer for about 50 Reais. No room for dessert, although after the table was cleared a kind waiter came by to present a luxurious tray with no less than ten different mouth-watering suggestions. Wish I would have saved room for some!

In Brazil you have many restaurants where you can pick your food from a big buffet and then weigh the food by the counter and then you pay according to the weight of your food.
This can be very economical if you don´t like big portions and it´s also a very good choice for vegetarians in a country where meat dishes is what you normally get.
The kilo restaurants tend to be medium priced and generally cater to the younger middle class brazilians but everyone is welcome there.
You see lot´s of little food stalls in Brazil.
They mostly serve very nice local food.
I have eaten there hundreds of times and never had any stomach problems from that food.
One of the reasons i think is that it´s freshly prepared right in front of you so it has not been sitting on some buffet for 2 hours before being consumed.
I would certainly recommend eating food from street stall and by doing that you also support hard working people who normally don´t earn much.
Churrasco is the national dish of Brazil and one big meat feast.
It´s basicly grilled meat that is being served in various ways.
The waiter in a churrasco retaurant will constantly walk around the tables and offer different types of grilled meat, often with half a cow on a wago where he cuts the meat directly in front of you.
Once you have paid for your entry you can eat as much meat as you want.
It´s not the cheapest way to eat in Brazil but it´s very yummi and a must if you want to eat the way brazilians do when they are feasting.
If you like seafood, then Brazil is your kinda place.
Small restaurants are scatterd along most beaches and generally serve excellent seafood.
It´s usually just a little shack and then some chairs and tables on the beach, but the food is freshly cooked and the setting fantastic, so there is no reason why you should not go for that experience.
Favorite Dish: I´m a fish eater, but if you like crab and lobster then you are in paradise.
