Leite is an oasis in the heart of Recife's gray city center. This is one of the oldest restaurants that is still open and has a classic environment.
Service is excellent, staff really well trained and food is just great! Good value for your money. One must try the "fillet with reino's cheese and fettuccine" as well the desert named "cartola"!

Leite has been open for more than 100 years and even though it is Portuguese in its origin, the food is international and excellent

This is one of the oldest restaurants running in Brasil for more than 100 years. The saloon is nice and beautiful. The staff is atencious and efficient. I asked a Spanish Fish. It was really tasteful. It is opened just at the lunch time.

There everything that is served is great, from the meat to the fish, but my favorite dish is the filet with mushroom sauce.
