4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014 NEW

We ate here for lunch and dinner watching Brazil play Chile and then Columbia v. Uruguay. This place does shrimp a zillion ways. We ordered 2 shrimp dishes and a filet mignon in garganzola sauce that was great. Service was super attentive even as fans were yelling and screaming (and ordering a lot of beer!).

We ate here our first night in Recife and I thought it was one of our best meals. The seafood is very fresh. We had the grilled seafood platter for 4 and also the ceviche. Highly recommend those dishes.

Had the dish with the giant squash hollowed out and filled with melted cheese, some spices, and shrimp. Unbelievably good. I don't remember what the dish is called - just ask for it. (There's a picture of it in the menu.) There's nothing like it. The only thing that tops that dish is the service. Very attentive. Without being overly... More

Great food, environment, and service. "Must go" if you are in Boa Viagem. Reasonable prices and considering that it serves up to 3 or 4 people depending on how much you are hungry it is actually a great value for your money.

Found this in Trip Advisor and our guide book. Food is ok (in Brazil most dishes are for 2) and there was only 3 of us. So we didn't get to try a lot, but the Bobó dish was pretty good and satisfying. The Brazilian Syrah was actually pretty good too. Best for a group of people so you can... More

The restaurant is very close to the Beach in Recife DownTown. Its specialty is the Shrimp. But we ordered several plates and they where all good. Also the service was like nothing in Recife. Very good, puntual, they did what you asked for. The best restaurant in my travel to Brasil.

First of, not a place to go alone: dinning for a single person was nonexistent in the menu and it was summarized to me as 3 options only, at 60% of the full-priced dish for 2. Several beer options in the menu, but only few actually available. Shrimp is their call of fame, but did not impress me much. Of... More
