I visited the restaurant alone on Septemeber 2016. The environment of the restaurant is very nice however the quality of the meat wa bellow average. Prices were very high compared with what you get.

Went here on a business lunch on a weekday. This is the best Churrasqueria in Recife. It is pricier than the other but you can expect endless quality lobster, incredibly tender cuts of meats and service like no other. I was very impressed with the overall experience and would definetely there here again.

Very nice selection of meat, salad bar and sea food. For a region a little far from traditional cow breeding area, all the meat is very good quality. About the salad options, including salmon or shrimp, is a must try. And the two options of grilled and boiled lobster, were the outstanding dishes. Maybe the service is a little distracted... More

We went to Spettus to have some nice barbecue, and this is the best barbecue I have ever had. A lot of different meat is grilled, and on the buffet you find all you can wish to eat together with the nice meat.

Nobody spoke English, but stumbling our way through was worth it - the food was great! In addition to the meats they bring around, they have a buffet with sushi and lobster and more

From an Italian perspective I saw (and went into) a lot such all-you-can-eat places. Honestly the buffet corner is very big, you can find the cheese corner, the Japanese-like place, the sea-food corner (lobster is very popular, take your place in the line), the cold dishes corner. Once you seat down the meat tournament starts but too much salt covers... More

Tipical brazilian rodizio, well served in variety of meats, and a nice, free, well served bufet along side. The price is fair if you eat well, don't go with children as you pay for person.

If you ever find yourself in Recife and want to go to an all-you-can-eat restaurant, I recommend to you one called Spettus. There you can find an excellent service and a variety of food in a reasonable price. When you get there you’ll be well received and the waiter will nicely ask you if you know how their service system works, if you don’t, they’ll explain as nicely as they’ve received you. Whatever the option that you choose I guarantee that’ll be tasty. You should start with a healthy salad after that you can get some seafood like shrimp in garlic and oil or a codfish dish. If you really like meat, you should try the various barbecued meats and finally try a delicious dessert.
