Bar Do Luna

Reviewed By ARTHUR M

Voltando ao Recife não poderia deixar de ir ao Luna comer o melhor Chambaril da cidade. Um caldinho de entrada e depois se deliciar com esta iguaria que há muito está nas minhas lembranças. Local rústico, mas imperdível. Não deixem de vir.

The restaurant is on the first floor at the main entrance.The restaurant is very elegant. The waiters were helpful and they showed us a very nice piece of meat for 2 people. As we were not so hungry, we had to decline and ordered a traditional ojo de bife which was perfectly grilled. There is a large variety of side dishes. We also had the burger which was also perfectly grilled and with cheese and arugola salad in a wonderful bun. The burger comes with fries and a divine guava ketchup - very delicious!They have a large selection of wine and beer.

Restaurante Leite

Reviewed By 557ulrichk

We ate lunch here after a visit to the "Marco Zero" and the surrounding quarters which are pretty run down. Consequently, our surprise was great when we found the Leite in this neighborhood. Waiters in white jackets and the piano man playing some romantic Latin tunes. The menu continued in this mode by offering dishes named after Gilberto Freyre and Burle Marx. I had the plate with beef named after Gilberto Freyre and my wife had the seafood plate according to Burle Marx. Both were delicious.

Camarada Camarao Primeiro Jardim

Reviewed By Wes B

We had our supper during the "happy hour" time. Ordered fried shrimps and risotto for 2, plus 4 drafted beers, which complimented our meal. We took a picture of our dish and compared to the same posted on their menu. That's why we didn't give 5*. We paid R$120.00 with a tip included.We were very happy when we received reviews like this! Come back to Camarada forever! :)

The staff is very friendly and welcoming. They try to make you fell comfortable and to explain about the food . The food is well served and most of the dishes is fit to a couple and almost 3 people . The only observation is that it tend to attract a lot of people so it’s good to go early and book the table .I advise to taste the moqueca which is tasty and not pricey for the amount of food you get ;DWe were very happy when we received reviews like this!

Reviewed By Michele t

I had lunch at "Entre Amigos" with my husband and a friend.We ordered a couvert with bread abs three types of pates as an appetizer. We tried "bode" for the first time. It is a very traditional meet in the northeast of Brazil.Since the moment we arrived until the check, the service was very good. The waiter explained the options with the meet we wanted to try (Bode).We order it baked in the oven (Assado coxão) and it came with rice, beans and "paçoca de bode". The portion was good enough for the three of us. We also ordered a bottle of the local wine. It is called "Rio Sol", an assemblage of Cabernet and Syrah. The total price was R$230, which is reasonable for the quality of the food. Overall a very pleasant meal.
