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.

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

Great food, pricey for Salvador. Would eat here again but more for special occasion. We had beef medallion and grouper - gorgeous. Staff very attentive and located left of the main Sao Francisco church.

It is, by far, the best Muqueca we had. The place is nice and charming. The service is not the best (we've been there two times, both times they've got our dish wrong) and it is not cheap, but definitely worthwhile. Anyway, It is a must go in Salvador.

Maria Mata Mouro is not what it used to be anymore and ... I've known the place for many years now. Pricing is sky-rocketing but the refinement of the dishes is loosing it's touch in matter of taste and presentation. Also, if you are really looking to sample local Bahian food this is not the place to be. Sure they... More
