Description: Operating since the 60's, Barravento became a postcard of the city of Salvador. Its privileged location has made the restaurant the preferred meeting place for family reunions, meetings with friends, as well as romantic dinners. In addition to a pleasant and sophisticated environment, the Barravento still has a wonderful view, because its structure was built very close to the beach, making the Barravento an ideal place to enjoy the sea or a beautiful sunset.

“Bobó de Camarão (Shrimp Dish)”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Excellent view, service, and food. One of the best Bobó I have ever tried. The restaurant is located in one of the most important tourist areas, and can accommodate big groups.

“Not what it used to be!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Our Brazilian friends advised that Barravento wasn't nearly as good as it used to be, but I wanted to give it a try because the open seating over the beach is fabulous and I had a great meal here several years ago. Well, they were right. It's amazing how fast a restaurant can go downhill. I knew the food would be pricey, but it was bad. Even our drinks were disappointing - can't remember the last time I had a glass of rancid wine or a bad caipirinha. The fact that it was totally empty should have been a warning sign because other restaurants down the avenida were packed. There are better ways to enjoy the lovely beach views of Salvador - lesson learned, listen to the locals!

“The Best Food and Service”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

English menu available, really nice location, a good meal and several bottles of bear for 2 people cost around 100BR including service charge. Great menu choice and ate here several times as we couldn't find anything that came close to this quality.

“Great food, beautiful ocean views”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

The views alone are worth the visit to this restaurant that is located right on the beach. The food is quite good as well with large enough menu to offer something for everyone.
