I last visited in 2007 and nothing much had changed. We sat in the air conditioned section which was probably a little chilly, although better than the non aircon section which was oppressively humid in July as was much of Salvador for an Englishman! The diners were mostly middle class locals enjoying a long family lunch. The air conditioned side... More
This probably had the best acarajé we tried (and we tried 4 times within 2 days), as well as great moqueca and cocoda for desert. Our server was incredibly, incredibly kind, and when one person in our party asked about how to eat acarajé, she prepared our plates for each one of us (I almost thought she was going to... More
For the second time I´v been in this place, realy wonderfull. My first time did at 10 years ago and before this I went there the last year. The same food, the same sympathy of people. All people that go to Salvador have must go in this restaurant!!!! Good appetite
Recommended by friends who used to travel frequently to the area. Enjoyed a round of appetizers but the real star was the Moquecas. We had one with Octopus, one with Soft Shell Crab, and one with shrimp. To me the octopus was the star but all were excellent. My first experience with Bahian food and one I truly enjoyed

Yemanja is another good place for eating regional food. Same high standards along the years, this place is not so famous as Bargaço, but equals in quality and service. Located in the beach front, this is a fantastic place for an early dinner overlooking the Atlantic.
I had the pleasure of eating at Yemanja tonight. The food was excellent, you have a bit of a wait for the muqueca but it is well worth it. The staff were attentive and helpful and the ambience gives you a feel for real Baiano culture. Overall a great restaurant.
I am living here with my girlfriend (Salvador native) and she has been coming here for years. In fact, I ate here many years ago as well. The muqueca de camarao is to die for. But, we went on a Sunday afternoonat about 1:30 and had a 20 minute wait. Ok. Not too bad. But the problem was that it... More
