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

A food experience that was seriously paradisiacal! The inebriating lusciousness of the amazonian and bahian orchard fruits were far beyond the radar of our gastronomic exploits. We were starting to feel somewhat despondent after almost two weeks of faring off so-so food in urban Brazil (Rio and Salvador: cuisine frité and sucré — fried and sugared to smithereens) that we almost...

The very best part of this experience was the food itself..superb. We started with a soft shell crab empanada which really wasn't an empanada but was excellent. Do not miss the tropical mixta with lobster, octopus, shrimp and fruits. An amazing authentic dish..one portion easily serves two people. The atmosphere is very pleasant, we sat on the upper deck "in... More

The atmosphere is rustic but perfect (we've had lunch under the shadow of a big "jabuticaba"s tree which was refreshing in that hot day. The dishes were just amazing (we've had "casquinha de siri", which is an apetizer that is made with crab, and also we've ordered the "casquinha" made with octopus and shrimp: they were delicious). The special "muquecas"... More

I have never tasted any dish so authentic and delicious based on grilled fruits and seafood (octopus, lobster, shrimp, and even fish) as in Tropical Misto. Go for this option. The place is a little far from city center, but worth the visit. The proprietor is very friendly and is always walking among the clients. Very nice atmosphere, specially for... More
