My God, Ive never seen so many different types of beef/pork/chicken like here. It was a new experience of ‘buffet’ as well. You serve your carbs and salads, and sit down to eat, but I bet you that you wouldn’t be prepared for the experience...More

One of the best rodizios in the country. What makes the difference is the seafood, with excellent lobsters. If you want, you can have as much lobsters as you can take, in different recipes: poached, grilled, with sauce, etc. Expensive, but it pays off.

The all-you-can-eat steak houses in Brazil are called rodízios. They were actually invented in Brazil, and are popular now even in the US. The best rodízios in Brazil all share at least three elements: excellent meat cuts, excellent non-intrusive service and excellent salad bar. Few...More

This chain specialises in joints of meat brought to your table and sliced off the joint to order. The rules are simple. You are provided with a beer mat that you turn over green to show you want more: red if you want a break....More

If you ever find yourself in Recife and want to go to an all-you-can-eat restaurant, I recommend to you one called Spettus. There you can find an excellent service and a variety of food in a reasonable price. When you get there you’ll be well received and the waiter will nicely ask you if you know how their service system works, if you don’t, they’ll explain as nicely as they’ve received you. Whatever the option that you choose I guarantee that’ll be tasty. You should start with a healthy salad after that you can get some seafood like shrimp in garlic and oil or a codfish dish. If you really like meat, you should try the various barbecued meats and finally try a delicious dessert.
