Went to La Bobine with my partner as we were stating at the Recife Hotel probably a 30mins walk away. This restaurant has a superb location right on the beaches edge. We attended during the evening and after we arrived the place started to get busier after 8:30pm. The location i to die for - you practically have waves brushing... More

You cannot deny, this has to be one of the best positioned restaurants in the world. Cute cabanas and cosy seating areas offer amazing views to the beach. The food is good, but the service is slow and unresponsive, although friendly when it comes your way. Despite the average service, I'm still a repeat customer because That View.

Great place to have some drinks with friends, enjoying good dishes or appetizers. Also with a romantic environment for a nice evening. Lovely view of the beach.

The restaurant has a rustic decor that is in good keeping with it's beach setting. The food is acceptable though the selection is not as varied as it could be. This makes for a good casual night out. Beware the parking area around the hotel as several inebriated people seem to hang out there.

We were straying down the road at the Lux resort and wanted to get out for dinner, so we walked here. We were told there was a great view, but on a moonless night, we could hear the ocean and smell the ocean, but there was nothing to see. The oceanside seating is in "booths" with wicker-ish walls and cushions,... More

Right on the beach so the sunset view couldn't be better but otherwise a bit of a mixed bag. Some of the food was excellent, but some wasn't so great and for the price some of the portions were pretty small, whilst others were big. It wasn't predictable! The service was also pretty poor, we had to get up and... More

A good choice of fish and meat dishes, generous portions, sevice was very kind if a bit slow. Which is not a real problem with a such great view to the beach from a lovely hut!

location perfect! Food nice, service appalling! Non attentive, stressed and "didn't want to be there" attitude. Think it all stems from the owner/manager who looks miserable and fed up all the time and would rather drink and smoke at the bar rather than help his staff!! He doesn't care anyway, the location will always put bums on seats.....shame!!!
