The soul of Bahia

The fruits, food, atmosphere, service, but mainly the magic. This is a special place to visit. The waiter Natanael was very nice and pleasant. The place has the spirit of Bahia. Don't hurry and enjoy.

That's almost all you have to say about this place. The chef and staff were fun and friendly. They went through their extensive fruit menu so we can pick the right tropical coconut cocktail which i'm wishing I had right now. The food is the best food I had my entire time in Brazil...my entire time I was in South... More

The restaurant is off the beaten track. We made an 20 minutes taxi rdie to reach it in a residential area. Therefore check with your taxi driver whether he can pick you up after you have finished your meal and how to reach him. According to the recommendations we made a reservation for a Saturday evening but got the impression... More

Chef driven restaurants in Brazil -- and elsewhere -- can often mean an ordeal of "creative" and self-indulgent cooking, at high prices, in a vain effort to improve on traditional recipes. This place is one of the few exceptions, where the chef really is an artist and a craftsman, and uses his knowledge of local ingredients to actually improve upon... More

Authentic local food served with passion. The waiter was very helpful to explain every single dish without speaking english.

The place is unique, far from the city, but not so far by car (maybe 30-45 min from the center), it is a place that uses fresh seafood with local spices and spices from Amazonas. The seafood stew is unique, no other local restaurant do loke them. The place is very natural, not sofisticated, but harmonizes with the proposed food.... More

I can't call what I have eat as "Muqueca", because it is so different from all others that I had before. It was an amazing experience. Very good service, very good food. One problem, I have heard a lot about them, so I wasn't very surprised, but anyway, it was really good.

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
