If you are a fan of Bahian cuisine (moqueca, bobo de camarao, etc. -- think lots of fish and shellfish with rich sauces and stews), then this place is an excellent option in Rio. It is in a very pretty neighborhood near the botanical gardens (Jardim Botanico). The service is friendly although not that prompt.
Note: the moqueca and bobo portions for 1 person (half portion) are definitely large enough for two people of a normal appetite, trust me.
