Great food

This restaurant has delicious food. I ate a dish called sinfonia do mar and the flavor was phenomenal. Really delicious. If you like sea food this is the place to go to eat fresh sea food. Their staff is very friendly and very helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Probably the best restaurant in Recife, specialised in sea food, they have a good wine list and the plates are for two people. Prices are ok if you consider quality and quantity. The also have alive oysters.

Let me start by acknowledging that I know that in general in Brazil the food is terrible. Also that most restaurants serve plates for 20 or more people to share. Thus saying, I went to what I read is the best fish restaurant in Recife and was offered a choice of 2 dishes: baked fish fillets, or pasta with mussels.... More

We ordered a lobster with cheese and it was fantastic. It is a fancy restaurant, not a beach place a where you can go wearing flip flop. The attendees are very polite and attentive, ready to answer a request. The price is high. We paid around R$150 for the lobster, but the quantity was not enough for two people.

We were a lot of people, the restaurant was really crowded but the service was not that bad, even though all of that was happening. The food was great and one entree served 3 people really well. I would definetely go back there for the acarajés.

This is a great restaurant but had a hard time finding it because it moved a while ago and the information in travel books isn't up to date. The food was wonderful, the service was excellent.

Was in this restaurant for a business dinner and loved the ambience. I had a wonderful caipirinha with exotic fruits that were presented to us on a nice plate. I had the octopus as starter and it was amazing. The "muqueca de camarao" was tasty but not at the level of the octopus. A little expensive but nice in the... More

We waited 30 mins before being able to place our order, and it was another hour before the food arrived. Most main dishes were over 100 reais, which equates to $50! Food was only ok, not great! Very poor value overall
