I was interested in visit this restaurant - every time we visited Salvador by work we tried to go there and we did it someday. Well, the place is really exotic and has a lot of "baianidade" - what defines something from Bahia. But then comes the food. The appetizers were a kind of crab but it was not good... More

We tried the chef's special moqueca. While it was not the best moqueca that we had, it was very good. The standout dish was the crispy and addicting soft shell crabs. My husband never eats these. I talked him into trying one and he ate half of them, which was good for me since they served a huge platter of... More

The chef is very creative. He greeted us and is very funny and outgoing. He uses fruits in his Mocequa, which gives it a twist. We chose the one with Fish and Shrimp. It had unusual fruits exclusive to Bahia (Biri Biri). I still prefer the traditional Mocequa but this is must try. The caipirinhas were delicious. We also tried... More

Awesome location, feels like you are in a cozy organic farm - which you kind of are as the owner grows majority of his own produce there. You must try the Aratu starter (type of crab). We were four people and we ordered two moquecas - they were both delicious, the best ever, but a little too much (and we... More

Everyone recommends it so we had to go, but as the taxi driver turned into this very dark residential road and asking the kids in the street where the restaurant was we were starting to wonder whether we had made the right choice, but a minute later we were in a different world sat on the upper floor terrace surrounded...

It's a bit far away but it definitely worths the visit! The ambiance, the food, the drinks, the service, it's all perfect! The moqueca especial is divine, made with ingredients that you can only taste there. Try also the caipirinha of bacumixá! Simply the best place in town!

Too hard to describe the experience here in Paraiso Tropical. Because we are not talking about only of supreme food here, we are talking about a different kind of unique experience...in a truly diverse restaurant where the Brazilian soul is king, all embodied by its legendary owner...Beto. You can't depart from Salvador without paying respect to this temple and its... More

Paraiso is one of those places you keep coming back to, again and again. Chef Beto takes you in as one of his own children and treats you to the most delicious versions of Bahia dishes ever. If you don't order an exotic fruit drink, you are missing half the experience. Paraiso is like no restaurant I have ever been... More

This restaurant is the the area of Cabula, in Salvador quite away from the city centre, but worth the trip. The dishes are recipes from Bahian culinary but with a twist, as the chef introduces tropical exotic fruits - grown in his own garden in the back of the restaurant-, as seasoning, cooking ingredients and garnishing. The result is a... More
