They had a great, beef burger and even greater beef fajitas. Comes with delicious sides, salsas, guacamole, sauces etc. The owner speaks english, and helped us with nightlife advise. Free wifi is also a plus. Not the cheapest, but definitely not expensive either. Very good value for money. Lunch or dinner.

Lovely little corner spot in the Pelorinho, just off the main throughfares. Very tasty food while if not cheap is not overpriced. Attached to a hostel so probably gets very lively later on, but was not overly busy at lunch time. Has good seating outside.

Go, don't stop, don't think, just go. Best fox I've had since arriving in brazil a few months ago. You can really tell the chef puts his heart in the food and cares about what he's doing.

loved to eat at Zulus just around the corner from Galeria 13 and to hang around there. Enjoyed the Moqueca with fish or vegetables, the salads with fried shrimps or chicken, the fresh fruit juices and sitting on the street watching people passing by or chatting with other travellers or listening to the drums which are always there in Pelhourinho.

The food is good, BUT they don't take cards! and moreover there are cockroaches in the outside food court. So take this into consideration before you go.

The food is really good, I loved the Baiana salad with prawns and mango! We had dinner twice at this place. The first night the service was extremely poor, but the second evening was great.

This bar is run by an English guy who also has some hostels in the area. There were 4 of us and we all tried different things off the menu, everything was tasty, well presented and reasonably priced. Service is very good and he is also able to give you tips on things to do in the area. Nice seating... More

The staff, the location and most of all the food was indulgent but absolutely affordable. Everything is made on-premise, down to the ketchup! Always felt safe, warm and welcome. The burger is divine and more than a mouthful for the ravenous traveler! Homemade buns and perfectly grilled meat. A perfect stop for a hamburger hungry belly. Try the guacamole as... More
