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

This restaurant served good, authentic Brazilian food but was way too expensive. For an entrée, I paid $75 (Canadian) and that was one of the cheapest dishes on the menu! My friend that I travelled with ordered a dish that cost him $150 (Canadian). Before going on our trip to Brazil, we saw everything in the media about how dangerous... More

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
