I really recommend visiting for a nice late lunch or early dinner which great views of Recife from your table. It can be quite a romantic night! With good beers on the menu and a great flavourful choice of food! The stuffed pumpkins are delicious! Service is friendly fast and proper! Well done Oficina Do Sabor! Well recommend!

I have not dined in every Restaurant in Olinda but this one is certainly First Class. Five of us shared two seafood Meals for two which was more than ample. The quality of food and service were exempelary. All in all an excellent venue with far reaching views.

This place came highly recommended by some local expats. And it was excellent! We had two versions of their signature dishes which are cooked in hollowed pumpkins. Delicious! Also the view to Recife in the night is fabulous. Try to get a seat on the balcony from which to enjoy the view.

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.
