Been here many times and absolutely adore the Bolo de Rolo! Each time I am in town visiting this place is a "must visit" for a quick wine tasting and delicious meal in their restaurant. The service is friendly and welcoming. Prices are reasonable considering the top quality products they have. For me, this gourmet heaven has always been the... More

I was here for the World Cup 2014 and was told to try the Brazilian traditional dessert "bolo de rolo" so I thought, when in Brazil do what the Brazilians do! Wow, am I glad I did. I don't even know exactly what was in it, etc. but it was the best dessert I've ever had. Not only did I... More

Great service, nice value for money and the best part is the attention to detail and flawless service. Great place to have a healthy breakfast, lunch or... More

A fantastic place where you can buy any kind of food. The delicatessen sells imported foods and fine wines as well as typical Brazilian food. This place is most well known for its amazing and renowned cake, "Bolo de Rolo", but it also sells a wide range of other cakes and has a great buffet restaurant on the upper floor.... More

Casa dos Frios is a superb market for buying everything from American imported foods to fine wines, to great cheeses, appetizers, condiments, spices, breads, etc. It's not cheap! But, honestly, it's the only place in Recife to buy really, really unusual food items! Worth it, as far as I'm concerned... and the quality is outstanding.

This is the restaurant I use to go during the week. It is frequented in business days by the people who work nearby. It offers Brazilian and some Portuguese food in the restaurant, which stays upstairs. The salads are attractive; among the hot plates there is always salmon that never is the way I like (wet and almost raw inside... More

I heard many times about the "Bolo de Rolo", which is a wrapped cake, filled with Guava Jam. Yet smal, fills you pretty quick, so don't worry about the size of it. Yes, its expensive, but worth the money. Go for it. The whole Casa dos Frios is fantastic. You can find everything, from biscuits to very good wine. I... More
