We wanted a traditional mocequa and read the reviews on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The dish, which is traditional in Salvador, was amazing. The flavors, the consistency (thick), and the freshness of the ingredients were bar none. The owner who is English was around and talked to us, and the waitress was very nice. We also saw the chef...

Service normal not bad not good, food correct compared to other places in salvador, cocktails are good. Not very expensive 25 € / 2 people for 2 cocktails and some tapas. Doesn't worths the good notation they have in the lonely planet.

The staff were so rude and unhelpful we didn't even bother eating here. We went with our baby and asked about taking a chair from inside outside so we could fit our travel high chair to it but they said no. We then went inside the staff completely ignored us. Needless to say we left and went to the restaurant... More

Had been recommended to come here and was not let down at all. Both food and drinks are reasonably priced, with a lovely outlook in the Pelourinho as well made for a nice experience watching a World Cup game. The only regret was not trying more from the food menu!

I had the indian curry which was very good. I am a vegetarian and it was nice to have some veg friendly options while in Salvador. Nice staff and located close to the hostel Galeria 13. They give discounts to customers of the hostel which was great.

We went to bar Zulu with my friends from the hostel galleria 13. if you stay there you have 10% discount but you must ask for special menu. As nearly everywhere in Brazil the portions are of great size. We sit on the street and there was great atmosphere. The food was great but the service is a bit relaxed.
