Ridiculously expensive

The dishes are nothing special. The view is nice (but the neighborhood is awfull don't think of going on foot). The service and ambience are great, but don't warrant the steep pricing.

Chez Bernard is unequivocally the best French restaurant in Salvador, its view is magnificent, its food delicious and it has a very romantic atmosphere. Though it is kind of expensive, I recommend its Steak au poivre. You won't regret going there!

I was disappointed the last time we were in Salvador not to be able to eat here and was excited to learn that it had reopened. We were there on a rainy day, so the view was not as spectacular as...

This is the best French restaurant in Salvador. The view to the All Saints Bay is wonderful. The "filet au poivre" is the best I have tried all over the world. Just PERFECT....It is kind of expensive though. But, whenever I go there it is worthed!
