Orla Bardot 500 Buzios Brazil


Its location couldn't be more ideal; Satyricon occupies an open-air terrace bungalow overlooking the fishing pier at the edge of the main village. Made famous by its legendary sister-restaurant in Rio's toney Leblon neighborhood, this seafood franchise is one of the most famous in Brazil complete with a not-so-eager hostess and wall of cookbooks that make Ina Garten look like an underachiever.

The Food

From afar, the space looks fussier than it is. Inside, however, guests dripping in white linen with fresh tans and plenty of exposed flesh occupy a sleek dining room glowing in candlelight and conversation. Dinner begins with a selection of seafood crudo followed by homemade pastas and main course medley of scampi and market-fresh fish baked in rock salt coupled with endless bottles of South American white wines and rose.

Last Word

Sexy seaside dining room is hallowed ground for Rio weekends looking for stylish seafood dinners with a view.
