Although we live here in Macieo, and only a couple of blocks from the restaurant, until yesterday we had never eaten there. We stopped in for lunch, when it was less crowded and had a true gastronomical tour of Alagoan cuisine, unlike many restaurants here, seafood is not the centerpiece here, but rather all the dishes are centered around mandioca,...

I have passed Bodega de Sertao a few times before. Saw the tourist buses parked outside, the high prices on the menu -for me it looked like a tourist trap. But we gave it a try and went there on a Wednesday when not so crowded. And it was really a good experience! The buffet has many tasty, local dishes... More

Oh boy oh boy oh boy... the difficult part is to choose what to eat at these amazing buffet restaurant. I tried feijoada, carne de sol com queijo, several types of rice dishes, brazilian braised cabbage. For dessert I tried the passion fruit mousse which was to die for.

The restaurant offers a wide variety of all the typical North East Brazilian dishes, in buffet format. Pricing is per kilo, so you pay less if you eat less. Very reasonable prices though. Typical folkloric all interior design, the staff is very friendly and capable. The restaurant also has a souvenir shop with art objects and small souvenir food products.... More

There, you will find the greatest diversity of regional food in Alagoas. A Brazilian state with a rich, diverse and tasty cuisine. you can not miss the opportunity when visiting Maceio. But you should take a native friend to help choose the best.

Very good and tasty regional dishes from all over the Brazilian north east. They serve the food in a self-service table, which is good - everything is really traditional and faithful to the origins of the dishes. A good experience for anyone looking to taste regional falvours from Brazil - do not expect a lot of seafood; the regional dishes... More
