Great restaurant

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

We ate here to celebrate my birthday during the World Cup. It came highly recommended. After we were seated it took 15+ minutes for a server to come over. My wife actually had to go ask to have somebody come over. The service got a little better after that. Prices are extremely high. I had the grilled seafood platter. It... More

Don't get me wrong, the food is pretty good. But it's not amazing compared to several other restaurants in the region - but the prices are way higher. On top of that, the dishes serve two, they don't make half a serving. Are you alone as I was ? Sorry, they don't really care.

I ate at Bargaco with a friend, who had was leaving after two years in Recife. We were both looking forward to a bit of spice, a rarity in the North-East (short of heating it up yourself with some pimenta). Cannot fault the service and attention, but the food really didn't excite me. We had a soft shelled crab dish... More

Just to think about that "sinfonia maritima" ( a seafood stew in coconut sauce ) makes me drool! I love this place, the service is really good, friendly courteous people. Can't wait to go back!

Its a little expensive but the food is delicious! I really recommend to drink the caipiroscas . They are so good! Because they use fresh and tropical fruits, they are very refreshing!! Also I recommend the moqueca de peixe and casquinho de siri as appetizer.

I had the Shrimp Termidor during a business trip. The shrimp were so big and juicy. It was probably the best shrimp that I've ever had during my travels in Brazil. However, this was one of the most expensive restaurants that I have ever been to in Brazil. My entree cost 117 BRL. I ordered an appetizer which consisted of... More

Comfortable place, terrible service on busy days (holiday + Saturday luchs) but nice Brazilian food. Recomend sea roasting fisch. Note that plates are for at least 2 persons if very hungry! Caipirinhas are good but very strong.
