Impressive quality and service. The chef and owner himself walked around greeting the parties. He is such a gentleman and a sweetness! The restaurant uses their own fruits and vegetables for all their dishes. We got the caldinho do camarão/shrimp soup to start. The best I've had during my 7 months living in Brasil. Then we got the grilled octopus,... More

Fabulous restaurant, recommended by our hotel... Excellent moquecas (we had one for two featuring shrimp and octopus - delicious!) and equally excellent caipirinhas (try the mango and coconut variation). One of the best meals we had during our two week trip to Brazil. Well worth a visit while in Salvador and an easy taxi ride from the old town.

If you are looking for an amazing place and an outstanding food, it is here. Fish, shrimp and sea food! Special ingredients are also perfect. The price is fair and the place is simple and easy to find.

This is the place to enjoy family and food among nature. Try grilled fruit, calapolvo and casquinha de siri. Go for the fruit juices that look like sorbet! Save room for the farm-to-table fruit festival they offer as dessert.

Locked in a residential area of Salvador, Paraiso Tropical offers a very nice selection of local Bahian dishes, mainly seafood. The food is very rich, we had 4 main dishes for 6 people and couldn't finish it all. Well worth trying are the various tropical fruit juices, incl. Guava, Tamarind, etc.- they are delicious, with or without Cachaca! Service is... More

What a joke. I can't believe this place has such good reviews. First it will cost you about R$50 to get there! And another R$50 to get home. Then the food is expensive.$$$$$. Cost us R$350 for 3 people with a few beers. The food is very average. We mostly had sea food meals. All were over cooked!!! The service... More

Best meal we had in Salvador, and up there with the best we had in Brazil. Excellent and friendly service, delicious food, large menu with many options to choose from. For dessert course they bring you two huge bowls of fruit, and a plastic bag to bring home what you can't finish. Wine list was very reasonably priced. Reservation essential,... More
