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!

This guest was the first of some of our unhappy guests to write after the world cup and really was quite special.She indeed was not happy with the Guacamole which strangely enough was the best seller through the world cup.After i was called (the owner ) i thought it was better for the chef to understand her complaints.

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.

I spent a night just hanging out and drinking beer, I really enjoyed that it is located in a safe and quiet corner. Cool.

We ate here a couple of times when we were in Salvador based on the good reviews it had. The Mochecha we had wasn´t great (had better elsewhere), but the vegetarian lentil burger was nice. It was really quiet when we were there so not the best atmosphere.

It's a nice place to spend a meal, there are some tables at the street where it's easy to feel your self a part of the city. You can get a discount if you are staying at "Galeria 13" hostel, but you should ask for a special menu for that. There are tasty food to eat and of course the... More

We went to bar Zulu because we received a discount there through our hostel, but it's not really worth seeking out. The portions are HUGE, though the meat isn't of the highest quality and they only have two local dishes.
