good seafood by the prices. Good option for an informal dinner. For those who loves Guaiamum (kind of crab) you can choose your own at one container with hundreds of them.

This place is a mix of bar and restaurant that caters to a diverse clientele, with a wide ranging menu to match. You can have either a series of small plates or full course meals that will certainly satiate your appetite. I highly recommend the seafood, particularly the crabs, some of which you can pick alive in their tanks at... More

Cosy restaurant where it is possible to eat from sushi to Parmegiana beef. I had some seafood, small shrimps in garlic and oil and oysters. The first was just ok, the second was awesome! Very, very cold beer is served. Service is slow and unnatentive. Price is fair. TV sets every where showing from soap opera to axe music make... More

Better to go in a group than alone since the portions are good and can be divided. Two in one because there also is a sushi bar.

Great restaurant to have sea food in Boa Viagem. Portions are ok to large, prices are a little bit high but quality is there.

The restaurant has a great selection of dishes (perhaps too many!), a wonderful buffet and Japanese dishes like sushi, sashimis, etc. The waiters are attentive and service is generally quite good. My wife loves the Guaiamum crabs and eats there every day when we are in Recife.

Good seafood with an average price in a noisy place. Verythingyou ask will come perfectly cooked, hot and well served. If you like, you should try the "Guaiamum" that is a type of crab, I think... You can choose how big you want your Guaiamum: small, medium, large or giant. Also you can choose it from an aquarium in the... More
