This place in Boa Viagem is a couple blocks from the beach and gets busy after 9PM. If you are an early eater, you will see the place deserted, but that is temporary. Keep in mind there is no AC, just fans. Brazilian restaurants are not as fond on AC as the US counterparts, so never take AC for granted when you go to a restaurants. It feels local, with a huge TV playing Brazilian DVDs, and beer choices are plentiful. Order “bolinhos de bacalhau” (deep fried cod fish treats) and I guarantee you will love them. Also, while in Recife have some fried cheese (“queijo coalho”) which doesn’t melt but just heats up wonderfully. The dishes are generous and may serve more than one person. If you order one individual plate per person, then you pay the price. If you share, the dishes are fairly priced. Service is attentive and very good. As usual, it is local practice to tip 10%, and it usually comes included in the bill (“serviço 10%”).

We tried the BBQ house across the street but they would not be open for another hour, so we went to this place. It looks like a beach restaurant away from the beach. There was no AC (or at least it was not on) but it was raining outside so it didn’t bother us. The food itself was good and plentiful, however I found it expensive. We ordered some caipirinha, a fish dish, a chicken dish and two small desserts. Service was good and we didn’t need to wait too long until the food arrived.

Located 5 mins from Bua Viagem beach, the restaurant offers plenty of dishes in a local flavor, in high quality.
I went there twice with my 2 friends, and we ordered different dishes each time, and all of them were excellent.
The service was also good, and the drinks we had were excellent.
A little bit too pricy for Recife, but just a little bit.
Highly recommended if you visit Recife.
