Description: If you ever find yourself in Recife and want to go to an all-you-can-eat...
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.

Tipical brazilian rodizio, well served in variety of meats, and a nice, free, well served bufet along side. The price is fair if you eat well, don't go with children as you pay for person.

Went here for a business dinner while in Recife. Although Spettus is a chain in the area, we were very pleased with the experience. The salad and hot sides bar was amazing, and even included sushi and lobster/seafood for non-meat eaters. The meat itself was very good and not overwhelming. Great service and an overall modern, professional atmosphere made for... More

There are two Spettus restaurants in Recife... Be sure to reserve a table at Boa Viagem since the meat used here is much, much better than at Derby. It is more expensive at Boa Viagem (location and quality of meat) but still a solid place to have a nice dinner with friends! Try the sushi and sashimi since also the... More

Simply excellent. All you can eat concept, with a great buffet for starters (including lobsters) ans the meat that you will be offered was fantastic. After eating once, we did not do have any experiments but ate there every time we had a chance.

I am lucky enough to live a couple of blocks from this restaurant so i have been there quite a few times. It's possibly the finest churrascaria in all of Brazil. They not only have an extensive variety of meat cuts (from pig to angus) but also a great deal of seafood that you won't find in restaurants alike. Service... More
