Up on a hill overlooking Búzios Bay, Mistico Sunset Lounge & Restaurant serves creative, fresh, local seafood in a dining room and on their verandah.  We enjoyed an excellent luncheon after wandering from the pier to central Búzios and exploring the boutiques and cafes [see our previous post, “Búzios, Brazil”.]  Unlike many of the dining establishments along the waterfront and in the central district – by nature of its location up a hill – Mistico was not crowded for lunch, even with a very large cruise ship in port with us.  Our service was quite good with a friendly waiter who spoke excellent English.  As shown in the photographs, their cuisine is very creative and all dishes were well prepared and quite tasty.  Very highly recommended!
