Recife has great places to eat, ranging from cheerful and bustling to refined establishments comparable with the country's finest. Armazéns do Porto, a modern drinking and dining complex next to Marco Zero, houses several bars and restaurants that come alive at night and is part of a larger, ongoing port revival complex.

For cheap bites, head to the nightly food and artisan fair at Praça de Boa Viagem.
