One of the best restaurants i have been to... Excellent seafood and nice caipirinha. The service was also good. You can eat on a terrace with a great view to olinda and recife...

Oficina do Sabor lived up to its great reputation. The food was excellent. Can highly recommend the tasting place for entree, and pumpkin stuffed with chicken and coconut. It can be expensive if you order prawn or shrimp dishes, but the chicken was reasonable value. This place attracts Recife's TV personality's and A-listers because the food is great. Good service...

My boyfriend and I went to Olinda while staying in Recife for the world cup. We arrived at sunset and although we did not get to see as much of the area as we would have liked we were thrilled at the amazing dinner we had at Oficina do Sabor. Based on the reviews, we ordered the Lobster + Shrimp... More

We went there this evening and had a terrible experience. Poor service. The food was greasy and with very little flavor, much better places in Olinda. Save your money.

Very nicely located, with a beautiful view of Recife. The place is cosy, perfect for enjoying a relaxed meal. Food is realy nice but the portions could be bigger. Prices are ok for local standards. If you like to try good regional food, this is definitely the place to go.

I had dinner here last month and was extremely disappointed by the quality of service; the waiter could not have been less interested and was bordering on rude (communication not being an issue as we both speak portuguese). While the food was good, the 2 person main course was small so left hungry and frustrated.

This is the best restaurant in Olinda. Nice atmosphere good food and good service by Brazilian standards. The stuffed pumpkins are original and delicious and certainly not something you see normally they are well cooked. Sobremesas are also very good. Much nicer restaurant with better food than Patua This one is worth going for the other one I would just... More

Not knowing what to expect, we ordered shrimp in passion frit sauce, served in a pumpkin. It was delicious. The place is quite basic, but you don'tneed a fancy tablecloth when the food is this good. It was also reasonably priced. Much much better than the #1 restaurant in Olinda.

If you are visiting Olinda, make sure you visit this restaurant and get a table on the large rear veranda. The caipifrutas cocktails are amazing!! Not cheap, but extremely good value for the quality of the food and impeccable service.
