there were plenty of crab and shrimp dish choices in a very lively and friendly atmosphere! Great prices too. Caipirinhas were disappointing, especially of "exotic local" fruit.

It is very well located at the seafront avenue of Boa Viagem.

The atmosphere is lively (tough noisy) and if you are lucky enough to get a sit just close to a window it will be certainly better.

The food was good, despite the fact we thought our dish came with too much flavor and onions and just some rare shrimps.

My score could be better if the service wasn't so cold, something really unusual for such a friendly place like Recife.

Went there for a late lunch. The place was very busy and extremely noisy.
It is one of the few remaining restaurants along Av. Boa Viagem, as most tend to move away (ex. Bargaço, Ponteio, ...) and be replaced by those ugly residential building.
Casquinha de siri was very disappointing. Maybe it's their special receipt, but not what I expected: The crab meat was drawned is some heavy wheat sauce, probably a way to increase their margings.
The fish was fresh and well prepared. Side dishes as usual and standard service.

Have been to this restaurant on the evening of Wednesday 08 August 2012 for a farewell party of one of the young & talented Computer Engineer. We were a group of 15 people. It was raining at the time of party and temperture outside had dropped. The overall atmosphere was very good, food was tasty especially the fried shrimp. The day was with Happy Hour (1+1) for shrimps and cerveja - a very good value for money! Every member of the group has appreciated the atmosphere, service, quality and cost.
