Although in a touristic zone of Salvador, this restaurant has most impressed me in the city. An extremely interesting menu which actually revives old, authentic recipes from Bahia in which you can clearly see the strong influence of the African continent. Not many places in...More

Very good service. Family loved the food. Restaurant decor is not fancy, but representative of local style. A place to visit

Lovely and attentive staff, tasty food and authentic decor - would recommend! We had the crab starter which was delicious and then the prawn moqueca - and it was really hard to choose from such a good menu.

Very good choice in Rio Vermelho neighborhood for local Bahia cuisine. Food was really good (try the Arroz de Hauça) as was the Tamarindo Caipiroska, which is a must try. Decor is more on the Spartan side, but it's ok. Service was corteous, but slow....More

Really good place to try the local Bahian food, but i believe at this time of year it is only open for lunch. can be found down a small side street and good and clean inside and much better than it looks from the outside.
