Fodor's Review

Often cited as the best restaurant in Búzios, Cigalon is an elegant establishment with a veranda overlooking the beach. Though the waiters are bow-tied and the tables covered with crisp linens and lighted by flickering candles, the place still has an unpretentious feel. The food is French-inspired and includes thyme-infused lamb steak, braised duck breast, and prawns in a lemongrass sauce with almonds. Set menus start at R$60 including a starter, a main, and a dessert, and are a terrific value.
