Great place for drinks and food

Excelent place for happy hours or a night out with friends. All kinds of people get together in here. Good and cold beer, great food and a functional juke box - anyone can choose a song to be listened in the whole bar.

Good food, drinks, and great people. My favorite bar in Recife, near Rua Aurora, historical and nice street in the city. Try "cartola", brazilian desert made with banana and cheese.

We struck paydirt when we found this restaurant in Recife. It's hip, trendy with a nice urban feel to it. We even loved the eclectic, sophisticated musical playlist. This restaurant was surprisingly inexpensive compared to the better restaurants in Olinda. The menu was large and varied and included many Mediterranean dishes.
