A classic in Salvador. Service is nice and maybe too informal, but I can't complain. Try the sarapatel, if available.

Having seen Dada on television, we were excited to eat here, but we were ultimately disappointed. Dada was not anywhere in evidence, other than on an advertising poster for Norwegian bacalhau hanging on the wall. Though in the middle of touristy Pelourinho, the place was...More

We had the moqueca with all the different types of seafood and it was lovely! Everything was really tasty, we ended up here by recommendation and loved it! The side dishes were very tasty and unique too. Great experience and good value!

We had the fish with ananas and I must say it was good looking but it was kind of tasteless... Moreover, even the side food was not good at all... I wouldn't recommend it

We were told that this was the best place to eat Moqueca. The food was ok-ish, but there was no feeling to the place. No music, just us and other couple. Very cold and empty.
