Description: If you ever find yourself in Recife and want to go to an all-you-can-eat restaurant, I recommend to you one called Spettus. There you can find an excellent service and a variety of food in a reasonable price. When you get there you’ll be well received and the waiter will nicely ask you if you know how their service system works, if you don’t, they’ll explain as nicely as they’ve received you. Whatever the option that you choose I guarantee that’ll be tasty. You should start with a healthy salad after that you can get some seafood like shrimp in garlic and oil or a codfish dish. If you really like meat, you should try the various barbecued meats and finally try a delicious dessert.

“Genuine Brazillian Experience”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

This restaurant is what is known as a "rodizio" restaurant where they bring (and kept bringing) an extensive range of meats to the table- generally on huge skewers which they carve the meats from. Beef was rare and succulent. The pork,chicken and chops were excellant as was the lamb. There is a buffet of salads and other kinds of meat plus fish and shrimp. Everything was fresh and tasty and it was a real dining experience and there is a real ambience. Not too much English spoken, but thet didn't really affect what we ate or our enjoyment..
As it was lunch time, we only consumed the local beer, but they had a huge range of wines. The price for food is fixed at 59.9 Real per head and was good value. There is a 10% sevice charge. You could not leave hungry !!

“Amazing Rodizzio but expensive”
Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

This is one of the best rodizzios i ever tried, US$60 per person and noes not include desserts. Something that I didn't really like was that they charge the same amount of money for my nephew who us 10 years old as all other adults in the table,

“Really good churrascaria, worthy the price”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The churrascaria at Boa Viagem was a really nice surprise for us. The service and the food were really good. Very well served and the selection of meat (ask for their special selections, they need to prepare, you won't regret) were really good. Te buffet has a good variety of sea food.

It is pricy, but recommendable.

“Perfect Introduction to Brazil!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

We began our Brazil trip in Recife, with the intention to work our way south to Iguacu Falls and Floripa, and our first meal out was at Spettus Steakhouse. Fantastic! The dining room is large, open, and well lit. The wine menu had a great selection of Chilean and Argentinian varieties. And the buffet had an impressive selection of hot and cold lobster, shrimp dishes in sauces, white fish, plus lots of salads and vegetable dishes to choose from. But the real highlight is the parade of waiters who stop by your table to offer all kinds of grilled meats, hot off the rotisserie. All of them were delicious, with the "argentine beef" rising above the rest.

One quibble: some of the salads on the buffet looked as if they had been there for a couple of hours.

At $100 each its not cheap, but very fun and memorable as a first ever meal in Brazil.
