It seems fitting that the tropically themed Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino is home to some of the best seafood in town. However, no matter what your expectations are, Búzios Seafood Restaurant is sure to exceed them. Named after a small fishing town in Brazil, Búzios’ seafood tastes so fresh that you’ll wonder if the food was caught that day right outside the restaurant. Combined with an upscale atmosphere, relaxing décor, and large windows that open up to the Rio’s Ipanema Beach and swimming pools, Búzios will make you a fan from the very first bite.
Sit at comfortable booth in the dining room, or dine at the oyster bar and watch your food being prepared by the talented chefs in the open kitchen. Búzios’ menu features fresh seafood as well as traditional New England fare. Diners can choose from a wide variety of appetizers, soups and salads, lobster, fish, and crab, premium beef, chops, and alternative meats, and large sides perfect for sharing.
For a light and savory start to your meal, try the Prince Edward Island Mussels, perfectly seasoned with herbs and white wine, and served with garlic toast for mopping up the delicious sauce. A satisfying and delicious follow-up is the Seafood Tagliatette, served with shellfish, fish, crustaceans, asparagus, and cream. Many delightful dinners can also be had with the classic seafood entrees, including the Steamed King Crab Legs or Roasted Australian Lobster Tail, both served with Meyer lemon butter. And for those preferring eats from the land, try the Rio Dry Aged Rib Eye & Cap, delightfully topped with a Pinot Noir reduction sauce.
Búzios also offers a Chef’s Tasting Menu with a six-course selection of seasonal offerings. And be sure to leave room for dessert; from a rich Banana Crème Brûlée to a daily selection of seasonal sorbets, Búzios’ meals come to a sweet and perfect end.
Locals especially love Búzios for its exceptional service in addition to its fresh flavors. And for a restaurant of its quality, you’ll find that dishes here are reasonably priced and prepared from scratch when you order them. From the fussiest critic to the experienced diner, anyone can appreciate the savory choices and just-caught tastes of Búzios.
