Went there twice during our stay in Salvador. The food is great and reasonably priced. Try the octopus rice and the shredded beef with pumpkin.

Boteco is a place where you can eat a meal, drink a couple beer, drink a lot of beer, have some finger food at almost any time, pay cheap for huge portions and everything is tastefull. Boteco do Franca is all of this. And more, in the heart of Rio Vermelho. Don't miss it!

The place is very casual and the food is really tasty (I ordered the octopuss vinaigrette and it was not only great, but also huge!).

The food is great (ask for the spinach with grated cheese), the prices are low, it is in a windy alley; great for warm nights, very, very simple (plastic tables and chairs).

Great atmosphere on the street in bohemian Rio Vermelho. Perfect for drinks but the food is totally overpriced.

It looks like a very old, and bad kept place by the outside, and not that bad by the inside... and terrific after the food arrives! The prices are not the best, but you get a big portion to compensate. The food is terrific, and this place was elected one of the best restaurants in Salvador. An hidden gem! If... More
