Parraxaxá can be a great gastronomy experience for those interested in learning and trying typical Brazilian Northeastern food. There is a little bit of everything in buffet stye. That gives one a chance to try different things instead of picking just one dish.

It is a nice place for you to get to know a bit of the local cuisine. The interior design is very nice, but I thought they lack variety and more options in the buffet. The coffee pudim is amazing. Worth the try.
