It is a nice place for you to get to know a bit of the local cuisine. The interior design is very nice, but I thought they lack variety and more options in the buffet. The coffee pudim is amazing. Worth the try.

This buffet style restaurant is very popular with Brazilians. You are greeted at the entrance and you get a card on which all your food and drinks are charged. You can put together your food from a large cold and warm buffet of nordeste specialities....More

Variety is their strong point, with dozens of different types of local food. Quality is not the mais concern, but you can have a very decent meal there.

This restaurant has the best tradicional, regional food in the entire city. I strongly recommend you to ask a "cajá" juice, eat a "tapioca" and enjoy the tradicional setting.

Lots of choices in this serve yourself restaurant- many meat dishes, breads, yams, tapioca and desserts. Pay by weight of the plate of food. Very color atmosphere- good service

If you're looking for real regional food from the northeast of Brazil, that's the place to go! The variety is great, quality too. There's a little park for small kids to play. I could eat there every day!!

you can eat regional food, but it's in great quantity and not of the best quality. the place is singular and the juices are verry good.

From the environment to the selection of the dishes, everything in this restaurant makes you feel like you are in a typical 18th century local farm house.

I have never seen so such food like I have seen at this place. Lots of salad and topical Brazilian food. It's worth checking this place out .
