We sit down in the large dining room around 19:00. Only one other party here at this time. We didn't realize the waiters who had nothing to do would make this area their break room. 3 waiters stood behind us laughing and talking casually for 20 minutes without stopping before we decided to get up and move to a different room. This all happened before anyone asked for a drink order. The waiters were unbelievably unprofessional, several of them staring at my girlfriend making her feel very uncomfortable. The food was pretty good. But the service along with the prices made this a terrible experience. Hard to believe they can't find waiters who will actually take their job seriously.

Located just off the sea-front in town centre. Very neat and clean place, high standard of cooking, long menu, good wine and drink lists.
Really good staff, who do not speak English but found one guy who could speak a bit so we managed. No English menus.

Huge portions so watch what you order.

Exceptional cervice, try the mixed 5 style, then any of the fish and sea food dishes, which are well presented and well cooked.

Very busy so book ahead, also private rooms are available.

International standard and very good value...

Having read a number of reviews of this restaurant and a lover of Peruvian food this was high priority on the must visit when visiting Maceio.
However it didn't live up to most reviews.
Having visited the Peruvian Restaurant in Boa Viagem Recife which I found to be of a high standard. This restaurant is not in the same league.
The ambience was not good, there were a couple of children running around, and it was very noisy.
The waiters were not very attentive.
The menu lacked choice and everything was very expensive.
Overall a disappointment.

Chose this restaurant for a birthday dinner and we're completely satisfied. We did not have reservations and the place was full, but they accomodated us. Great ambiance, lively Brazilian crowd with animated conversations, and attentive service.

Octopus starter, a cebola salsa with bread, ceviche and beef for mains. Could not have asked for a better and more authentic meal. We will return.

This is a must visit in Maceio. My first visit was so great that we went again two days later. Everything ordered was wonderful. The wait staff is very attentive. Excellent service.
