A great location in the center of Pelourinho, the historic part of Salvador, in a really pleasant setting. The food is very good, the service rapid and agreeable. Prices are reasonable (the wine list is maybe a little expensive for a Brazilian restaurant, for not exceptional wines at that, but this is the only (small) drawback). It is best to... More

A must visit if you are looking for great food in Salvador. This was the best place we ate. High quality food at a reasonable price. Get a seat in the back of the restaurant for the best atmosphere.

This little gem proved to be a great find. The service and waiters was that of a very fine dining experience. The onion soup we ordered we thought would be like a French onion soup however it was a creamy white soup, hints of onion but lots of cheese, and puréed. That was interesting but none the less, good. The... More

Great place for a classy but relaxed dinner in the Pelhourinho. We sat out back in the garden section, which is lovely and intimate, the staff are very good and the food is great. We had the (sharing for two) salt cod platter which was delicious, desserts were so good too, good wine list etc. Not expensive either, considering the... More

We ate diner there - in fact a late diner starting around 22:15. The place was full. The food was very good but the service slow even in salvador/brazil standards. Go there but don't come too hungry...

We were seated in the back garden and had to vacate our table because of rain, then waited about an hour to be re-seated. The staff were overwhelmed during the World Cup. The food was good when we finally got it.

Lovely restaurant right in the centre of the city. Staff were super attentive and topped up wine and constantly asked us if everything was ok. Food was delicious. Only complaint is the pate with bread, bread delicious but pate a waste of time. Definitely recommend this place which has charm and style. Also, wonderful relaxing music. Sit outside in the... More
