The restaurant serves typical food from Bahia and has an excellent wine selection. The food is great although a bit pricy. Air conditioning was an issue and accoustics is not great - we were there for lunch and there was some type of musical rehearsal...More

Ate one of the best sea food moqueca of my life, but it took almost 1:30 to get it. There was a big table with 20 people that arrived before us, which compromised the service. Would recommend it, but be aware that you need time.

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.
