“Well located for a drink and appetizers”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

It is located at Av. Boa Viagem,looks like a "boteco",which in Brazil means a very simple and traditional kind of restaurant,but it is only the name. It is very casual ,has very good caipirinhas and they are famous for their "choppinho",which is draft beer.
The appetizers are also good and you can even have a complete meal.The "feijoada" on saturdays at lunch is very good.

“Great Chopp”
Reviewed 17 January 2012

Boteco has one of the bests chopps (That's how we call draft bear in Brazil) of Recife. Has a good variety of snacks and table coverts, maybe a little bit overpriced for Recife, but you pay what you get.

“If you want to feel like you are on vacation in Recife, go to Boteco.”
Reviewed 2 January 2012

This is a long-time favorite of tourists and locals alike. Great atmosphere and beach orientation. The coxinhas (a chicken empanada the size of a full chicken leg) are excellent, and they have fri-sabor ice cream (the local "baskin robins"). Great for lunch at the beach or an evening out with friends. I have been going there for 15 years and will continue to do so.

“Very enjoyable, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

We went as a Party of 8, and although service was a little slow, it was not so bad as the place was packed.
Very lively, good simple food, thoroughly good evening.
