The food is incredible.....appetizers to main course (desert isn't great). It is a little bit pricey, but well worth it. Make reservations to sit outside for the view of Recife in the distance.

Walked there from our hotel as it was recommended to us by more than one local. Arrived early evening to grab a table on the rear terrace as it can get busy later. Evening temperatures whilst we were there in early December above 25c so a breeze is welcome. One of the more expensive restaurants we visited whilst in Brasil... More

the atmosphere was wonderful and the waiters very carismatic. The restaurant has two place to stay (one inside with air conditioning) and another out side where you can see the city of Recife. The shrimp with herbs was marvelous. With you stay until the sunset, you will see a beautiful silhouette of Recife disapearing as the night install itself over... More

Highly recommended. Good food, good service, a must if you´re in Olinda. It´s a small restaurant, so is better if you make reservation. Prices medium-high. Fusion Brazilian food. Ideal for dinner.

Look closely to find the entry off Rua do Amparo at 335. Walk through to the other side to find an elegant yet intimate setting with a great outlook over part of distant Recife. Food is excellent, served with unique style, and very very good. All kinds of dishes are on the menu, many of them for two or even... More

We went to this restaurant three times during our stay. We found it the best in town. Try the cooked pumpkin stuffed (jerimum): original, typical, healthy and tasty!

Officina do Sabor has a beautiful covered patio with spectacular views of the Atlantic and nearby Recife. Service was very attentive. The menu was in Portugese and English which was very helpful. We had lobster with mango cream baked in a pumpkin. It was excellent. We also had the appetizer sampler and chef's dessert to end. We enjoyed the whole... More
