yEs this place is in a not so great part of Salvador but you will be getting a taxi anyway. We had a terrific meal. Amazing little salad to start with green nuts and mango - delicious and very different. Main course was a seafood dish for two which came with rice and yucca. Absolutely huge and really delicious.

This restaurant is tucked away in a quiet dark mostly residential neighborhood far (30 minutes by taxi) from the city center or my hotel in Pelourinho. It was highly recommended by my hotel and TripAdvisor but on a Saturday night from 8 to 9 there were only 2 other tables of guests on the roof top open air dinning area.... More

The Chef Beto Pimentel knows how mix flavor and do the most tradicional baiano food in a different way. The place is beautiful and looks like a garden. Many fruits used in food are planted there.

Had lunch there and i will admit it is very good. Real Baiano food at its best, but it is pricy. Restaurant has won numerous accolades. Ambiance is very nice, restaurant build around an array of trees, so very comfortable. I found the fruit platter quite amazing, a selection of fruits on the house and they still give you a... More

Beautiful restaurant overlooking a forest. Kind of in a rough neighborhood but once you are there its paradise. Food is heavenly! Service is impeccable. Very unique Bahian food!

If you like Brazilian tropical food you need to definitely go to this Paradise. Take a taxi because it's in the middle of Salvador. Try out the delicious mocqueca de camarão with its herbs grown i ntheir own garden. Just delicious.

The restaurant is located in a rather simple looking building and entry is through a big locked gate, that is normal in Salvador. Once inside the return is split in different levels. The menu is small and simple to choose from. We had the suggested crap starter and one of the local dishes "mokekka", both were very good. If we... More
