This is an amazing buffet (you pay by weight of food) of Northeastern traditional dishes! This is my partner and my favorite restaurant in Recife. We've been to both the Casa Forte and the Boa Viagem restuarants.

This restaurant offers a wide variety of pernambucan regional food. It has an outdoor terrace and a large indoor hall with air conditioning. It also has a playground for children. Prices are a bit high.
