Great restaurant with excellent moquecas. The service is perfect. The deserts must be tried, especially the "mousse de maracuja". A bit pricy for Salvador but it is worth it.

They have a nice garden put staff does not speak english and are not very polite. Prices are extremely high and I would not recommend anybody to go here.
