A nice and typical Brazilian meal: escondidinho, tasty, well prepared. Wine and beer expensive. Service good

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2016

Sun-dried beef is their main dish. The portions are big enough for 3 people. It is one way to taste local cuisine. As the beef is dried in the sun, don't expect any tender meat. All is well done, never bloody or pink. The sampler dish comes with bean salad, farofa, and a piece of queijo qualho, which is not... More

This restaurant opens only for lunch, and it is specialized in "carne de sol" (meat exposed to the sun), typical from the NE of Brazil... They have multiple awards and are opened for more than 25 years. The meat is divine! You should really try it! And the pepper sauce made with cachaca and ginger is also very good. Strongly... More

The food is divine and the service impeccable. We ordered appetizers and steak dishes on two different occasions, and both meals were wonderful experiences.

Very much enjoyed our evening at Picui, because of the cured meat, the fast service and the very tasty orange juice and caipirinha. After a little while, you ignore the fact that it is on a busy road alongside the beach!

The reviews were great but you are always afraid something goes wrong. But it wasn't the case with Picui. The service was excellent. The waiter was always ready to answer my questions. Also happy to suggest when asked. We took a table outside and it was really nice. The food was amazing. Started with "caldinho de feijao" and a very... More

A real delightful gastronomic experience. A restaurant with own personalitty and excellent service ( rare to find in Maceio). A must go. And they have free transportation. Call by phone. The only but was the "acclimatized" cellar that is beautiful but the wine was too hot 17Celsius.
