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. We waited about 15 minutes to get a table, the hostess was efficient, but the waiter was in a bad mood, for example, I waited for him 15 minutes to bring me... More

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...

Great view. It is located right by the sea, with a wood deck over it, at the marina. Very nice place for eating by the sunset. Food is excellent.

Lafayette is located in Bahia Marina, same owners of Soho. The ambiance on the marina is very nice, the place well outfitted, the service adequate. This comes at a price! There were 6 of us for dinner and each couple ordered a salad and a main course, a bottle of wine and water. The food arrived in a timely manner,... More

We (2 adults and 2 children aged 9 and 5) had dinner. The service, setting and food was very good. Best food in Salvador that we had.
