If you're ever in a mood for the taste of Bahis, please go straight to this restaurant. The food is great, and the service is out of this world. It took less than 30 minutes to have a plate of moqueca with shrimp and hake...fish.More

I had just arrived in Foz do Iguazo, and wanted a quick, light meal before an early rise the next day. I was shown the restaurant across the road from my hotel, and was lucky that it turned out to be a very pleasant and...interesting place to eat. The walls are mostly red, and covered with paintings and hangings. I had not heard of the Moqueca before, but it looked so interesting on the menu that I declined the buffet that most other diners (all Brazilians) were choosing, and opted for the shark with shrimp Moqueca, cooked with coconut milk and ' a special seasoning in dende oil', which is made from the kernel from the palm fruit and is red orange in colour with a nutty flavour. The Moqueca arrived in the terracotta dish it was cooked in, and was probably the most interesting fish stew I have ever eaten. Washed down with a large 'Original' beer, the bill came to 112 Real, with 10% service. A lucky find for me, and an restaurant I would recommend seeking out for others.More

We were actually searching for a different seafood restaurant, which we discovered was closed for renovation when we asked a local who recommended this one. It turned out to be a great discovery. The salmon moqueca was delicious and enough for three people. Music was...supplied by a guy playing a guitar and service was prompt and friendly plus a menu in English is available . The moqueca and drinks for two came to around £30 for the two of us. Great value for money.More

Brazilians eat a lot of meat so this fish restaurant is a great break. They specialize in moquecas which is fish stew from the Bahia region. It is based on a coconut broth with veggies and fish, served with rice on the side. We took...the one with a local fish and shrimp: DELICIOUS. Brazilians don't use a lot of spice so we asked for a bit of hot sauce to give it an extra kick.More
It was the first time I experienced Bahaian cuisine and frankly did not liked it at all. It is basically a cheap products based cooking and that's the reasoning for scoring the restaurant that way. Tried moqueca, which even though sea food based was a...thick soupy dish with rather hard to chew mussels and some squids that was the only eatable in the dish. As side dish you get a floury puree. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated with limited and unpleasant open air seating.More
We love seafood and fish and so last night we decided to go and have dinner at Tempora de Bahia. The service was excellent. The waiter was very kind and gentle. The food was tasty and the portion were big. The singer was singing great...songs with a beautiful voice. We had a great dinner and went home happy and with full stomacks.More
We were welcomed by the warm and cozy Brazilian music in a red interior. We decided on the "rotation of fish" for the six of us. What a feast! All was prepared to perfection in a true Brazilian tradition. Loved it.
