Nice restaurant in Recife, very close to another or Recife's best restaurants, Wiella Bistro. Very good prawn dishes. We shared a prawn salad to begin with, which was excellent. Then we had a lobster dish to share. Lobster obviously fresh and tasted good, but unfortunately was overcooked and so a bit tough, which was a shame. We should probably have stuck with the prawn dishes, of which there was a great variety and, judging by the delicious prawns in our salad, would be a better bet. Big restaurant, which I would imagine would be lively when full. It was very quiet when we had a very late lunch there on a week day. Attentive service. Good value by European standards.

My husband and I ate here when we were in Recife for the World Cup

PROs:
Lots of selection on the menu, not limited to just Seafood
Very generous portions
Decent wine menu (for a place in Recife)

CONs:
Food was ok, but seemed a little "mass produced" We got fried shrimp and chicken - both were fine, but we were expecting more for the price.
Service was spotty - the waiter forgot my husband's appetizer and didn't speak any English or any Spanish. In fact, no one in the restaurant did even though when the hotel called them in advance they assured us it was English-friendly. Thank goodness the menus had English.
The waiter was also very difficult to track down and would disappear for awhile, which was pretty frustrating.

Overall, an ok restaurant to check out in Recife.

We ate here for lunch and dinner watching Brazil play Chile and then Columbia v. Uruguay. This place does shrimp a zillion ways. We ordered 2 shrimp dishes and a filet mignon in garganzola sauce that was great. Service was super attentive even as fans were yelling and screaming (and ordering a lot of beer!).

We ate here our first night in Recife and I thought it was one of our best meals. The seafood is very fresh. We had the grilled seafood platter for 4 and also the ceviche. Highly recommend those dishes.
