A must if you want to get the experience of a typical bahian moqueca. I choose shrimp and it was outstanding. Do ask for acaraje and biju as apetizers and for fresh coconut water. You cannot go wrong!

Had a late dinner on Sunday night a Yemanja. None of the waitress spoke English but we made due. I tried Muqueca for the first time and enjoyed it. The restaurant was empty so our food came fast and the service was good.
