We propose a Las Vegas probabilistic algorithm to compute the zeta function of a genus-3 hyperelliptic curve defined over a finite field $\mathbb F_q$, with explicit real multiplication by an order $\mathbb Z[\eta]$ in a totally real cubic field. Our main result states that this algorithm requires an expected number of $\widetilde O((\log q)^6)$ bit-operations, where the constant in the $\widetilde O()$ depends on the ring $\mathbb Z[\eta]$ and on the degrees of polynomials representing the endomorphism $\eta$. As a proof-of-concept, we compute the zeta function of a curve defined over a 64-bit prime field, with explicit real multiplication by $\mathbb Z[2\cos(2\pi/7)]$.
