Elegant atmosphere, magnificent view of "Baia de Todos os Santos", though in a questionable neighborhood. The menu sticks to traditional French with no chef's personal touch. Pricey for what you get.

The dishes are nothing special. The view is nice (but the neighborhood is awfull don't think of going on foot). The service and ambience are great, but don't warrant the steep pricing.

Chez Bernard is unequivocally the best French restaurant in Salvador, its view is magnificent, its food delicious and it has a very romantic atmosphere. Though it is kind of expensive, I recommend its Steak au poivre. You won't regret going there!

I went to this restaurant expecting great service, food and wine. To start, a poor couvert, bread, butter, horrible chicken fois pate and a ok chutney, expensive 15 per person. A bottle of wine costs 3 to 4 times the price in a wine store,...More
