Went off hours for a very late lunch. It is an open air, casual place. Sat in the back with a water view with fish ceviche with lots of plantain chips; and tasty grilled chicken with a baked potato! And COLD beers with great friendly service. Prices not cheap but not too bad considering all the above.

Great view, great food grilled on charcoal right at the entrance... And the best and most effective server in town!! Day special every lunch at $3 including soup, meal and juice. Unfortunately, service at dinner time is the worst in town. Avoid and go there for lunch only!

This is one my regular stops. Everything on the menu is great; my favourites are the ceviche camaron, the espada, and mariscos arroz. HUGE portions, reasonable price. Good service. Situated right beside the ferry dock with great views of the Chone River and the Los Caras bridge.

This is always a classic in Bahia. They have amazing roasted/baked potatoes that come with the BBQ dishes. We like to share the large platter that comes with all different kinds of meat, chicken, sausage, potatoes.... can't beat it for the price.

Good food at a reasonable price. Had their padilla which was a huge plate of beef, pork, sausage and chicken - too much to eat really and prepared exactly as requested. The huge dinner and a beer were under $12.

This us a Must for your dining experience when in Bahia! We went twice and just loved the seafood dinners! You can't beat fresh fish served up they way they do it at this place! I can say the service was great as well when we were there and I highly recommend eating here! We loved it!
