“Great (and expensive) restaurant”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

Great fishes and seafood. My wife and I tried the shrimp mayonnaise salad and it was great! Also, the "bobó de camarão" (stewed shrimp with coconut milk, dende oil and manioc cream) is amazing, and the portions are well sized. The service is very good also. But prepare your credit card. It is not cheap!!

“Excellent food, quite expensive”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

One of the best restaurants of seafood in Recife. The food is excellent, the service is good and the caipirinhas are "OK". Quite expensive. You have another awesome options in Recife with fair prices.

“Tasty and a little bit overrated”
Reviewed February 17, 2012

Bargaço is a local restaurant known for the good quality of their seafood dishes. The ambience is confortable, service ok, prices a little bit overrated for this city.

“Disappointing menu”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Since I don't eat seafood and that's what they specialize in, I chose their salada mista. I thought for R$ 17,00 that it should be a good sized salad with a large variety of vegetables. Not! It was not very large and just some lettuce, tomatoes and palmito. Very disappointd with the salad and the price

“Gorgeous seafood !!!!”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

As we had been many times in Bargaço /Salvador (and we love it), we've decided to try the same restaurant in Recife and we also loved it.
The only thing is that the restaurant was overcrowded in Wednesday, 1:00 p.m.. So, it's a good advice, to get there before this time, in order to choose a good table.
"Casquinho de siri" was very good and the "moqueca de camarão" was excellent. We've shared the dessert "Quindão"(coconut, eggs and sugar), one of the best I've eaten in my whole life…
The service is nice and the location very central.
In Salvador or Recife, I'll return, for sure...
