Great ambience, good food

I visited Lafayette on Sunday night, March 30th. This restaurant is located on a pier and the space is arranged to take advantage of the view of the many boats that dock nearby. The restaurant is mostly dark wood and has a great look. The service was excellent. I had the Camaroes Grelhados ao... read more

The best sunset view of the bay. The food always good and the service impeccable. If you go for lunch the daily specials are great for dinner in a cool evening been outside is a good choice. The food is a bit pricey but worth it.

Such a shame- so much promise with a setting on the harbour, all low lights and modern decor. My ceviche was not ceviche - don't think the chef knows what it takes- other than raw seafood. I had the robalo fish with risotto- too well- cooked it was dry.

Visited this restaurant for a birthday dinner and couldn't be more disappointed! Staff were not welcoming and didn't even pretend to smile. They did try to help us with an English menu but the waiter seemed irritated throughout our visit. The food was awful! Very bland and tasteless from starters to mains so we didn't even bother with dessert! Even... More

Clean decor inside and a nice outside terrace (dinner or mild climate for better results). This restaurant is located at the Bahia Marina along with two other restaurants. I went there on a Saturday with my dear hubby. For starter we had the octopus with potato ("batata ao murro"), onions and cherry tomatoes. Entrees: Sautéed shrimps and lemon risotto and... More

My boyfriend and I went down to this restaurant as we're on a budget but the description is wrong in our opinion: the menu was actually pretty pricey, so we didn't eat here. The food looked good, but we just thought we should give a heads up for the budget-conscious traveller like ourselves.

The food was great, we chose different dishes if sea food and they were all very delicious. It was very easy to reach by taxi and easy to go back to our hotel as marina taxis are waiting... More

My wife and I recently had dinner at this very nice restaurant that is located in Salvador's harbor. While it was dark outside you could still see many of the beautiful that were docked in the pier. We splurge and shared the "seafood platter" (R$215) but was well worth it. The quality and quantity was amazing. The platter included two... More
