Description: The beach and atmosphere are paradise, but the food at this restaurant, heaven - I dearly recommend anyone in the vicinity to stop over at this cutely decorated restaurant, and relish the delights that the Chef will cook up for you!

The moqueca (Bahian fish stew) of fish and shrimp was excellent! This restaurant has a charming, artistic ambience and wonderful food. The seafood was cooked to perfection, not overdone, and accompaniments were perfect. The pirao was especially good. We chose a table near the patio. This restaurant was not on a standard list recommended by our hotel, but the local people we asked said we made the right choice. Service was a little relaxed, but we were not in a hurry--food is obviously made to order so expect to wait a bit.

By far the best in Praia do forte. Choose from perfectly executed "moquecas", typical Bahia dish, kind of a stew with all kinds of sea food, or go to the more authorial dishes. Wonderful service, more than decent wine list (an exemption around), and lovely desserts. Definitely worth (at least) one visit

Excellent restaurant with great artistic decor. We went there at our first night in the city and we couldn't avoid going again in the next night. Food is excellent and inspired. It serves traditional dishes in bistro style with a touch of high cuisine. Ingredients are fresh and service is very polite. It's a bit expensive when compared to other restaurants in the same street.

If you are looking for a different experience in regional dishes (but a bit pricey), this is the place.

If you are looking for traditional dishes, then stick to other restaurants in the area.

Foi uma agradável surpresa o serviço e a excelente comida servida pelo Terreiro Bahia. Essa sem duvida foi a nossa melhor refeição na cidade. Bem feita com ingredientes de primeira qualidade. Os funcionários simpáticos e atenciosos. Pretendo voltar muitas vezes.

The appetizers were amazing, but main course (fish) was dry, which was really disappointing. Locartion is good but tables outside are noisy since they are almost in the middle of the "avenida".

In an simple but iconic and artistic environment this small and cozy restaurant serves a food which you can feel that you're touching the sky.
Try the moqueca Ana Bueno starting w/ crispy shrimp balls, together with a fantastic Caipirinha (Siriguela fruit is the best). You will feel that you that you never want to stop to taste that flavour! Even touching the sky... International class with a distinguished brazilian taste, typical but not the same as usual!
