I feel I must report my experience of "denied service" as a service to fellow tripadvisor users. I am decent person, good attire, clean, not drunk (as some clearly appeared to be on premises...). And sometimes I think that what they say is true... Lack of good personell keeps Brazilian GDP behind potential... Here's what happened. After a hard day... More

Bustling spot late into the night on the beachfront. Wide range of food and drinks - and live music she we were there. Big local crowd, smart and upscale.

Alphaiate is a very traditional restaurant , with a hint of pub bar style though. Food is very decent, large variety from regional cuisine to very nice steak choices. I had a coxinha de carangueijo, a sort of Brazilian fried crab meat balls appetizer that was pretty exquisite. Also the staff is very attentive e cordial. The only negative point... More

Went there with a local friend, my wife and two kids on a Monday evening around 8-10pm. It was definitely not crowded, but there were enough people there to keep it from feeling empty. The service was good and the food was better than expected. Great beer/drink menu. My local friend had a strawberry caipiroska, and he said it was... More

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 that, Alphaiate has much to recommend it: 1. Historic bar. Much of the decor is... 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 on the menu which makes a change from default offerings of picanha & prawn dishes... More

Good food. Very noise clientele and horrible live music indoors. Stay out ás they offers good terrace. However, be prepare for a very casual and slower service. That's what you get in the lovely Brazilian northeast!
