Website
Improve this listing
Ranked #5 of 3,657 restaurants in Recife
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Cuisines: Brazilian
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Reservations, Delivery, Late Night
Description: If you ever find yourself in Recife and want to go to an all-you-can-eat restaurant, I recommend to you one called Spettus. There you can find an excellent service and a variety of food in a reasonable price. When you get there you’ll be well received and the waiter will nicely ask you if you know how their service system works, if you don’t, they’ll explain as nicely as they’ve received you. Whatever the option that you choose I guarantee that’ll be tasty. You should start with a healthy salad after that you can get some seafood like shrimp in garlic and oil or a codfish dish. If you really like meat, you should try the various barbecued meats and finally try a delicious dessert.

Great selection of steaks, seafood and salad. All you can eat style, with excellent service. Brazilian style barbecue, specially made picanha, great grilled lobster. It's worth the price.

Visited this restaurant during my visit to Recife for the 2014 World Cup. I cannot heap enough praise on this place. From the second I sat down to the time we left, it felt like we were treated like royalty. Every cut of meat brought was cooked to perfection and would rival the quality of any steakhouse I've been to.... More

You may not find the same selection of different meat cuts here, but the seafood offering certainly beats the one of the Fogo de Chao chain. This place is a must if you are new to a Brazilian steak house or churrascaria.

Lobster beef pork and an excellent buffet. A Churriscaria close to our hotel with excellent service. Ambience a little stark when compared to others but quality of food second to none.

This place is great to binge on an assortment of buffet options including a great salad bar and grilled meats. The rodizio is amazing. Also loved the decor and the ambiance with live piano and family friendly for an elegant Sunday brunch. The prices are high but you get what you pay for.

We have eaten in many steakhouses both in Brazil and in the States, and this one beats any of them by far! The meats are tender, the buffet tables include everything imaginable, the servers will find anything for you that you can't find out--although I can't imagine what that would be! Our friend who eats kosher also commented on how... More

As a friend of mine once put it, "Spettus is good, but it's not twice as good." He was referring to the 100 Real per person price tag of a meal at Spettus Boa Viagem as compared to similar alternatives, like Ponteio or Spettus Derby. Both these other restaurants are one half or even one third the price of this... More

You have lots of steakhouses in Recife. Most of them are OK. But there are two that make the difference. Spettus is one if those two. Within its kind (all-you-can-eat), you have the best meat and a good buffet. Great caipirinhas! Ask for Claudiomiro. The best meats are the "Costela de Boi", Picanha Nobre" and LOBSTER and japaneese food

The prices are quite good.
