“Reasonable price for a nice steakhouse”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

I have only previously been to wildly overpriced versions of this type of place in the USA. I was very happy with the meal and the price was reasonable. A bit more upscale of a restaurant, very good salad bar, with much more than that including sushi. Very good mixed cocktails mixed in front of you and a very wide variety of steaks and meats. Good food, nice restaurant, totally worth the price.

“Fantastic Chgurrascos in a nicer setting @ Recife.”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

I would describe it like upscale rodizio. Great cuts and an ample salad, sushi and pasta buffet makes Ponteio a must if in Recife.

Came in during the WC2014 for dinner nad the place was so full it was ubelievebale, however the wait was worth it. Lean rodizio cuts and good wine list made it even better.

Have to say it was the best place we had dinner at whilst in Recife.

“Excellent BBQ food”
Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant during the World Cup 2014. We were glad we made a reservation as it was very busy. The food was excellent, with a range of salads, sushi, and the brazilian meats. We found the wine list to be quite good and reasonably priced. We would visit again.

“Great food in a good location”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

On our recent trip to Recife we went three times to this restaurant. If you like sushi and especially meat, this is a place for you. You won't be disappointed. Service was very good, starting with the person greeting you at the door to every person bringing food to your table. The meat selection is very good, and they keep bringing the food as long as you can eat. The dessert selection is also excellent. I loved the one with maracuja. They even had a reduced price while we were there. If we ever return to Recife, I'd love to eat at this restaurant again.
