I always recall going to Bargaço when I was little with the family. We would always order the moqueca with shrimp and fish, and it's always delicious. There, any plate you order is, actually. As an entree I recommend the salt-cod fritters, they're the best. And after the main dish, you should definetly order something from the dessert trolley. It... More

A friend of mine who's been living in Recife recommended this place to me for dinner, and it was really really good. I had moqueca de camarao which came with white rice and fish pirao. The portion size was very generous (each dish serves 2 to 3 people), food was very tasty and all of that was topped with great... More

This restaurant has delicious food. I ate a dish called sinfonia do mar and the flavor was phenomenal. Really delicious. If you like sea food this is the place to go to eat fresh sea food. Their staff is very friendly and very helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Probably the best restaurant in Recife, specialised in sea food, they have a good wine list and the plates are for two people. Prices are ok if you consider quality and quantity. The also have alive oysters.

Let me start by acknowledging that I know that in general in Brazil the food is terrible. Also that most restaurants serve plates for 20 or more people to share. Thus saying, I went to what I read is the best fish restaurant in Recife and was offered a choice of 2 dishes: baked fish fillets, or pasta with mussels.... More

We ordered a lobster with cheese and it was fantastic. It is a fancy restaurant, not a beach place a where you can go wearing flip flop. The attendees are very polite and attentive, ready to answer a request. The price is high. We paid around R$150 for the lobster, but the quantity was not enough for two people.

We were a lot of people, the restaurant was really crowded but the service was not that bad, even though all of that was happening. The food was great and one entree served 3 people really well. I would definetely go back there for the acarajés.

Thank csella
