Excellent restaurant in a beautiful setting with a nice view. Most plates are for two persons but there are also a few dishes for one. Enjoyed the fresh oysters and one of these typical shrimp stews. Waiters very helpful.

This is an elegant venue compared to other parts of Olinda. I found the food to be tasty but not, in my view, fine dining which I believe the restaurant would wish you to believe. The restaurant has won a lot of awards I personally can't see why, it is nothing special.

As noted by others, most dishes are for two people. The shrimp served in small pumpkins is beautiful! I also shared the seafood stew. On a second trip, by myself, I devoured the Portuguese potato soup. This had little bits of bacon in it and was so good that I devoured a portion normally meant for two. The caprinihas (sp),...

The restaurant offers a long list of typical dishes , but the best choices are among the seafood dishes. My favourite is the camarão tamarineira, shrimp cooked in tamarind sauce and served with coconut rice and a kind of mashed banana with coconut. Observe that most dishes are for 2 people. The drinks, with local fruits, are very tasty and... More

Many a happy night was spent here, devouring all the delicious dishes, cleverly served in pumpkins. The tranquil view over Olinda itself is just the cherry on the cake. I will be bringing my family soon!

95% of the main dishes are served for two, so I didn't have much choice. I've tried the convert which was made of 8 different dishes, most of them weren't tasty. The view is lovely and the atmosphere is nice, I guess that coming here as a couple or part of a group, you can enjoy more

The only thing this place did wrong was in choosing its name. No office this, but rather a temple to the art of cooking with the fabulous local ingredients and flavours. Justifiably topping the foodie charts of Olinda if you visit just one restaurant in Olinda make it this one. We were four and ordered two dishes for two people:... More

We visited with a group of 12 in June, and planned to visit Oficina do Sabor before we ever left the U.S.. For such a far away place, it is amazing how many people had told us to be sure and eat there. We had lunch, outside on the covered balcony overlooking a fantastic panorama. The specials are various choices... More

We ordered a crab dish as entree (starter), but the crab meat, if any, was spoiled by a rosé tomato sauce which concealed its flavour. It would have been better if one could feel the taste of the crab meat rather than that of a fatty rose sauce. The main dish - a Cabrito or goat - was really good... More
