Cozy atmosphere, well prepared dishes by a great chef. Oriental fusion cuisine with a Brazilian touch. Dishes are always very beautifully presented. Tastes are carefully mixed.

Food is very good. Definitly not touristy, away from Boa Viagem and Recife Antigo. Don't expect an open table upon arrival on week ends: full of discerning locals. Expedite service. Was taken care by Vania at the varanda.

Something close, but not exactly the same as the best contemporary in town. The food is really good and could definitely be served in a high standard New York, London or Paris restaurant.
