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

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!
