The attention span of the waiters is 5 seconds... With a memory of a red fish. After fighting all my dinner with scarce attention and forgotten orders, even receiving a check I didn't ask, which by the way wasn't my table's, when I asked my...More

Lombo de porco - very tasty. Accompanied with rice and potatoes, both prepared with garlice - one of my favorite ingredients. Prices fair, service ok. Of note - the majority of the beers they have on offer are in bottles. They do have a fair...More

This place offers great service, food and is always crowded with locals. It is not cheap but good value for the price. The quality of the food is great and service good.

I'm surprised Alphaiate doesn't have a bigger following and better reviews. For me, it's a classic choice for weekday happy hour or late Sunday lunch with the family. I even hold the occasional business meeting here. It's always open and easy to find. Aside from...More

I have eaten here many times. It is very local, in the third gardens on Boa Viagem. I have nothing negative to say about Alphaiate. The food is decent, above the basic standard you see in most regional Recife restaurants. They have some non-standard dishes...More
