Porto da Barra

The Rua das Pedras is no longer the only option for a fun night out in Búzios. A new dining area has developed on Manguinhos beach (Avenida José Bento Ribeiro Dantas 2900, Manguinhos; www.portodabarrabuzios.com.br; most restaurants closed for lunch on weekdays; 10-15 min. by taxi from downtown Búzios), overlooking the ocean and mangroves. Especially at night, this makes for a romantic outdoor dining destination when the restaurants and boardwalk through the mangrove are beautifully illuminated. Enjoy an Italian meal with a fabulous view at upscale Quadrucci (tel. 022/2623-6303) or grab some fresh seafood at the Bar dos Pescadores (tel. 022/2623-6785). Other options include delicious eclectic fusion dishes at Zuza (tel. 022/2623-0519) and sushi at the Captains Sushi Bar (tel. 022/2623-9097).
