If you want authentic Brazilian fresh seafood, this is the place!! Gotta try the crabs ( guaiamum ) soaked into this delicious stew!! Best raw fresh oysters and baked fish. Try also the seafood stew and the little stew appetizers ( caldinhos)
Every time I go to Brazil I stop there!!

Of course it gets crowded: huge portions of fresh seafood at relatively cheap prices! It is an unbeatable place to meet friends, eat good, no-nonsense, simple seafood and drink beer! Oh, and vallet parking: an important asset these days in Brazil.

The restaurant has lots of options of regional sea food. This is a good place for happy hour. Service is ok. The place is a little bit crowded and noisy. This is main restaurant of this brand. There are other two at Boa Viagem beach. One sea front and another one at Av. Conselheiro Aguiar.

This is definately a must go place in Recife, no doubt the best place to have guaiamum, don't be shy though, do try the amazing oysters!
Service is good, sometimes a little bit too slow, but soon forgotten after you have that colorfull tasty plate in front of you.
The place is also good, but it gets too croweded after 8pm and on the weekends.
Not expensive if you compare to other restaurants and the amount of food usually serves 3.

Despite the fact they don´t have the best beer in Brazil, Skol Beer, the place is very Cozy and the food is spectacular, specially the seafood, get without fear the "casquinho de carangueijo", a small potion of a very tasteful crab, and the "caldinho de camarão", a small portion of soup made of shirmps, but with real shrimp inside it.
