Spectacular setting overlooking the Bay of All Saints. Contemporary cuisine mixed international cuisine with typical local ingredients. The fish and seafood are sensational. But there are good choices of meats and pasta. The wine list is very cool. The desserts are special and very good service. It is among the best Restaurants .Unmissable

This place is really charming. The ambience is amazing. Everything looks nice and I must say: one of the best services that I had in Bahia (ok, I had bad experiences overall, but here the quality of the service was awesome). Besides the atmosphere, which is not less than amazing, the food is actually really good and diverse. Try to... More

We enjoyed a very good meal with some very impressive dishes and some which were ok. Try to get a table on the terrace which has a nice view. We found the air-conditioning too strong inside which was quite chilly as a result.

It's considered the most sophisticated restaurant in Salvador. The employees are attentive and friendly. Well decorated and good ambient. There are different options on menu.

Behind the warehouse exterior is a modern sophisticated interior, though you must eat out on the terrace which is right by the sea. This is a fine dining restaurant - food was excellent especially duo of lobster, coconut cake and choc mousse with bulgarian cake. Though not full when we visited on a tuesday evening there were quite a few... More

Rio Prices. Sao Paulo level of gastronomic food. Excellent service. Pleasant surprise for Salvador. Steep Prices.. But could be in Europe and you would not know. Super view to boot. Limited menu options. Highly Recommend this place. Bhagwan

We almost did not go to Amado after reading some of the reviews posted but we're so happy that we went. I was really impressed with Amado; the service, food and atmosphere were all excellent and if I were to visit Salvador in the future, would certainly eat here again. We arrived by taxi and an attendant promptly opened the... More

Bahia is notorious for bad service and our first stop in Salvador honored its fame. The place is beautiful, the food was excellent but the service far from minimum expected. It was a late lunch and there was literally only 1 more table and we struggled tomget the waiter's attention.

Amado was my first stop when I arrived in Salvador, hungry and ready to sample all that the local cuisine had to offer. I had read previous reviews about the service, but I had a completely different experience - they were so warm and helpful! To be fair, I arrived for lunch shortly after it opened, so it was far...
