Helmeted/ Tufted Guineafowl (capote/ galinha d'angola) dominates the decoration. It is also a tribute to the most known local specialty roasted or cooked. For a local like me, I tend to be very critical, simply because my mother is an expert on the subject. But, yes! The restaurant serves an excellent capote! And also country chicken, 'carne de sol', lamb, homemade sausage and a variety of local dishes. It is the place I would take any foreigner/ visitor/ tourist to appreciate local food. The house can accommodate many customers at the same time and orders can take some time (25-40 min), specially lunch time o weekends. This is also one of Favorito houses, traditionally a good atmosphere, prices above average. Most of the dishes can be shared with 2-3 persons, just check before ordering!

Little to say! I visited the restaurant twice in its original location in the suburbs of Teresina (Pirajá). Heard they have opened a new house in Fatima/ Jockey Club area. There is no much to order, they have mastered 'carne de sol' as no one else. The best I have ever tried, along with rice, manioc flour and vinaigrette sauce (also delicious). Prices are average. I am not very fond of 'carne de sol' but I must admit, they know what they are doing!

The restaurant is very small but really charming and cozy! Not to say, well decorated!
It was very crowed, so good thing we call in advanced and as for a table. There was live song playing…. Not so loud so it was possible to chat!
Good food and drinks. Definitely want to go there again.

Fui com a namorada numa noite de domingo. O atendimento foi bom, porém os preços sao muito caros. Desproporcionais à comida oferecida. Porção de arroz em média 20 reais e não vem incluido nas carnes. Tem que pedir por fora. Picanha 500g é 68 reais. Em relação ao sabor, nada demais. Pelo menos não cobram 10% do atendimento.

Un muy buen ambiente para compartir con los amigos, a veces tienen música en vivo y la comida es muy buena. Sin duda el mejor lugar en Teresina para salir a tomar algo.

Restaurante impecável. Realizei a recepção de meu casamento no local, o atendimento foi sempre muito prestativo para todos os detalhes. Todos os convidados elogiaram os pratos servidos e o preço foi bom.

Although I’m not a beer drinking person I can tell you that Frango Leste has the coldest beer ever! I know that because that’s what every person how drinks beer there say and because the cool there beer in a very special way.
Besides that the place has a very juicy bondless grilled chicken and delicious churrasco.
If you visit Teresina you must go there.

Olik is a different place, where flavors and aromas that delight our senses and bring us a sense of well-being and satisfaction with life in a cheerful and relaxing environment. Is a refuge and a break in the worries of everyday life, a place to find people we like. A place of friendship, pleasure, joy and art.

Mix of art gallery, decor objects, cultural center and cafe! The owners (two architects) are doing a great job managing this small house! A few number of tables in a very cozy place open until 9 PM offering a delicious coffee, unusual flavor caipirinhas (try ginger & passion fruit), assorted handmade salties and the best risottos in town. I confess I had a wonderful time there with my wife and daughter while enjoying an ice cold 'cava'! Service is perfect, prices according to what is offered. Good place for a happy hour with friends or just a break from the rush!
