Very good food and friendly service. One mukeka is enough for 2-3 persons. The right address for the restaurant is: Avenida Octavio Mangabeira, 136.

If you like authentic Bahian food then Ki-Mukeka is the place to go. Grilled Badejo fish is absolutely fantastic. Service is very nice. Restaurant is clean. Cost of food is on the high side but it is worth it.

Traditional moqueca with a good price. If you stay close to Itapuã beach its worth the visit. The atmosphere is not so good but the price and the food compensate.

If you want to taste authentic Bahian food, this is the place. Nothing pretentious, just good food and no tourists, mainly locals.

It is located in Itapoan, close to the beach, in fact, the back of the restaurant is in front of the beach, so the view during the day is fantastic! Part if the restaurant has air conditioner and other part there is not for those that prefer the nice wind when the weather is good. The muqueca of shrimps is... More

I love Brasilian food, especially Mukeka Bahiana (pretty much Bahia's signature dish). This is a beautifully aromatic, spicy fish stew served with rice Pirão (Yuca flour puree). You basically choose what type of fish (including, in some places, Cayman alligator) you wish to eat and with what type of sauce, how spicy etc... It really does have to be tried... More

Fair prize, excellent food, good service. Very typical restaurant. Not contemporaneous, not fancy but the muqueca is really tasty and fresh. Recomended

Fantastic seafood! Especially the Mukeka which is a traditional Brazilian dish. Great atmosphere with good service and a fantastic view of the ocean. The only downside is that parking is a nightmare around the area. But the food makes up for the hassle. Don't bring anything more than a compact car to park.

I was told that at Ki-Muqueca I could have a good muqueca. Nothing special! I had better ones at other restaurants less famous.The desert wasnt spectacular. Would not go back there.

People say that in Bahia the service is really slow, laid-back waiters...not true, at leat in Ki Mukeka. Our moqueca arrived in 5 minutes exactly and we were so well served, with girls dressed "baiana" style. Moqueca was great, one of the best i´ve tried in my life. The side orders (farofa, pirao and arroz) were delicious too. The moqueca... More
