Currently closed and looking like it is not going to be open anytime soon. Shame as it was highly recommended by a friend and we were planning to watch some World Cup games there!

Excellent view, service, and food. One of the best Bobó I have ever tried. The restaurant is located in one of the most important tourist areas, and can accommodate big groups.

Operating since the 60's, Barravento became a postcard of the city of Salvador. Its privileged location has made the restaurant the preferred meeting place for family reunions, meetings with friends, as well as romantic dinners. In addition to a pleasant and sophisticated environment, the Barravento still has a wonderful view, because its structure was built very close to the beach, making the Barravento an ideal place to enjoy the sea or a beautiful sunset.
