This restaurant is set at the heart of the villa, is totally green (from the material used to build it, to the seafood and ingredients bought locally), the service is efficient and frirndly, snd food cooked by chef Tereza Paim is just great. And guess what: it is not that expensive either. Give this starred place a try and you... More

This place is good, we ate well, but the bill at the end of the night came as a big shock. Prices to match the most expensive restaurants in Sao Paulo. We ate at Terreiro Brasil for the following 2 nights and found it much better - and better value.

Living in São Paulo I understand that Brazil is not cheap. However, the prices in this restaurant rival the prices of upmarket restaurants in the city. In short: overpriced. Had a lovely salad and a shrimp risotto the later one was lacking in creaminess it was boring. Quality of foodstuffs is v good. Both puddings were excellent

We only had a small but delicious lunch, and were entertained by the very friendly and English-speaking owner, Tchê. From the outside, the place looks like an anonymous and plain snack café. But inside is a beautifully decorated restaurant.

The moqueca (Bahian fish stew) of fish and shrimp was excellent! This restaurant has a charming, artistic ambience and wonderful food. The seafood was cooked to perfection, not overdone, and accompaniments were perfect. The pirao was especially good. We chose a table near the patio. This restaurant was not on a standard list recommended by our hotel, but the local... More

By far the best in Praia do forte. Choose from perfectly executed "moquecas", typical Bahia dish, kind of a stew with all kinds of sea food, or go to the more authorial dishes. Wonderful service, more than decent wine list (an exemption around), and lovely desserts. Definitely worth (at least) one visit

Excellent restaurant with great artistic decor. We went there at our first night in the city and we couldn't avoid going again in the next night. Food is excellent and inspired. It serves traditional dishes in bistro style with a touch of high cuisine. Ingredients are fresh and service is very polite. It's a bit expensive when compared to other... More

The appetizers were amazing, but main course (fish) was dry, which was really disappointing. Locartion is good but tables outside are noisy since they are almost in the middle of the "avenida".

In an simple but iconic and artistic environment this small and cozy restaurant serves a food which you can feel that you're touching the sky. Try the moqueca Ana Bueno starting w/ crispy shrimp balls, together with a fantastic Caipirinha (Siriguela fruit is the best). You will feel that you that you never want to stop to taste that flavour!... More

The chef gives different versions of the typical cuisine of Bahia and other states of Northeastern of Brazil. A little expensive, but very veryy tasty. Service is lovely.
