The food was excellent, the patio totally great. A perfect dining experience. There even was music! The service was agreeable. No criticism!

Loved the food and the surroundings in this hidden back garden restaurant in the heart of Salvador's old town. The service was poor and slow - think this was because of the world cup - but they were not prepared. Would recommend for the food and setting.

I broke my cardinal rule and ate at a place where the waiters wait on the street to grab you and I almost instantly regretted it. The decor and garden are nice enough but the food is mediocre at best for the prices they are charging. Not to mention when I went at lunch they were out of almost everything... More

The garden's atmosphere is nice, but the room inside is dusty and old, with sad equipment. In my opinion, the food is bradley cooked. I ate a filet mignon, not juicy and dry, served with spaghetti filled with a liquid garlic souce..

Go for the garden, not the food. Definitely not the service. god help you if you are very thirsty. Eat and drink before you go. Service is astonishingly slow. Tip:- don't let waiter leave your table until you check, your order, the food delivered. cutlery, drinks, napkins etc etc. Waiter hides from customers. Other waiter stays out on street to... More

Jardim des Delicias was a highly recommended restaurant in Salvador, yet my experience was very disappointing. I ordered the bacalao, a traditional fish meal that I ate before in other places and knew I would like. It came charred. It was black around the edges. The restaurant should not serve bacalao that way. If I were at home with an... More

We were the first in the restaurant, but even then the service was terrible. Asked for a water and a beer while we waited for the menus, both eventually arrived warm. Staff seemed totally disinterested in serving and we were eventually joined by two other couples who both walked out after staying for 15 to 20 minutes with no service.... More

As the name might suggest, there's a very nice garden at the back of the smallish restaurant which is great to spend an evening in. The food was good enough, and certainly filling. It's not place I can rave about, but it's a place I could go back to again as it's, as I said, just a pleasant place to... More

The best one we had, anyway. All different kinds, beautifully full of fresh seafood. Great drinks and a lovely atmosphere.

The first thing that strikes you about Jardim is the setting of the outdoor dining courtyard, sunken amidst several decaying colonial buildings, eerily lit, with vines and tropical plants all around. It's cool; it feels like something out of Disneyland, except for the fact that its authentic. A very good Brazilian singer with a guitar unobtrusively accompanied our meal. The... More
