Everytime I'm in Recife I eat a few times in Tio Pepe. Great food and the service always superb. Eating outside enjoying the decoration is such a nice experience.

Nice restaurant with a lot of tradicional dishes and a very different environment decorated with tools from the beginning of the XX century. All the dishes are tastefully and can serve 2 people.
