Perfect view, excellent food (try the fish) but the waiting staff was looking sad/not happy. Not sure if they had a arguing few minutes before we arrive or if they are usually like this. Sometimes a smile can make a complete difference when serving others.

I first dinned at this Lafayette last year as a guest of a business partner. Now I return to this 'high end' eatery with a good value menu every time that I visit Salvador Bahia. Simply stated, the food at Lafayette is wonderful!

This place is very difficult to qualify. Is not a typical restaurant neither an old school place. Modern, with a beautiful view to the marina, it is most like a Brazilian Tapas place. Blend of a sophisticated bar and restaurant, it is an ideal place for drinks with friends or for date while appreciating the sea and boats views. Seafood... More

I was there with friends to have dinner, I was already there 1 year ago and the food was excellent in that time and actually it still is.

Went to eat here with some friends. The place was perfectly situated. The service was excellent. The atmosphere was nice for a tuesday evening. When it started raining we were offered a different table within a minute that the first drops hitted the table. I can recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Relaxed place, really good food! The shrimp in a citric sauce was perfect! The squid salad was a very nice surprise! The glass of wine was a little bit expensive. But the proximity with the water of Bahia de Todos os Santos is priceless...
