Very good, "chef food" offered there! Been there twice, both satisfactory! Try the veal with wild mushrooms, wisely accompanied by a good "Brunello di Montalcino" wine! enjoy!

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.

We ate here and loves the food. We has five different dishes and they all hit the spot. Very hip and for SF Bay Area foodies. We all thought this spot could hold its own with any SF trendy spot.

Contemporary cuisine at its best. Extensive and creative menu and great atmosphere. Great salmon appetizer. Do not miss the dessert (who is to be shared). One of the best places in Recife with standard similar to a NYC or London restaurant.

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. If you are in the north of the town, that's probably the best you can get without bothering to drive south. If you try the restaurant for... More
