Very attentive staff, although not much English spoken. Drinks probably better than food, but nevertheless chilled out place and good for early or late drink at night. Wouldn't want to spend all night here but it does what it says on the tin. has an inside bit that's really dreary, so best sit outside

The appetizers are also good and you can even have a complete meal.The "feijoada" on saturdays... More

Boteco has one of the bests chopps (That's how we call draft bear in Brazil) of Recife. Has a good variety of snacks and table coverts, maybe a little bit overpriced for Recife, but you pay what you get.

This is a long-time favorite of tourists and locals alike. Great atmosphere and beach orientation. The coxinhas (a chicken empanada the size of a full chicken leg) are excellent, and they have fri-sabor ice cream (the local "baskin robins"). Great for lunch at the beach or an evening out with friends. I have been going there for 15 years and... More

We went as a Party of 8, and although service was a little slow, it was not so bad as the place was packed. Very lively, good simple food, thoroughly good evening.
