Amado is by far the best restaurant we tried in Salvador. Great atmosphere (try getting a table outside by the sea). Superb service, amazing food (the crab and the smoked duck carpaccio were outstanding) and great drinks (with a decent, if very expensive, wine menu. A must in Salvador.

Wow this place was over the top. Great wines to choose from, the food and service were top notch. No problem communicating with the servers in either English or Spanish. First Class Place.

Getting there, for the first-time visitors from abroad, mustn't be on food: please come and leave by car/taxi! The old warehouse, which looks pretty much like a big hollow brick building, was finely turned into an elegant and cosy spot of great ambience, where one does feel at ease and welcome. Service is rather slow and bumpy at times, one... More

There are a very good restaurant, nice place, correctly service but is not a unforgettable restaurant. Is considered the best in Salvador and probably yes, but can't be compared with the similar prices in São Paulo. I will be back

Excelent ambience, I strongly recommend the lenguado with palm risotto and the cheese cake, superb! Exquisite decoration that matches the first rate attention and staff kindness, while lookimg at the boats and fishermen at the bay. Fine wine, good price/quality rate. Hoghly recommended.

The overall experience was really good. Food + scenic view + good service, the big problem is that the parking area is so restrict and they are charging the customers for it, what is so uncomfortable and expensive.

Amado is high priced but worth the cost. The setting is beautiful, with outdoor seating overlooking the bay and marina and a handsomely decorated room indoors. The mostly local patrons were dressed casually but smartly. The food was quite good, especially the lobster, and service was attentive and gracious.

Really outstanding experience. The view from the balcony over the sea was beautiful. Wine list was good for Brazil. Local food (we just had fish and seafood) was fresh and delicious. Have the grouper if it's on the menu. The Caparinhas were super. The price was on par with most North American cities.

We came especially for the lobster and it was great. We arrived quite late and it took some time before we were served but is was worth waiting for.... We were 6 and all quite happy, but it is ofcourse quite expensive, we paid over 250 real per person !

We arrived with no reservation, were seated promptly at an outside table beside the water - great view, very romantic. However the waiters are sullen, unsmiling and the service is excruciatingly slow. The drinks took half an hour to arrive, we had to ask for the menu, the food took over an hour. The steak was good, the ravioli were... More
