Really enjoyed the food here! While I can't remember the exact meals ordered, everything we had was excellent. Great flavors and when they serve the meals in a traditional stone bowl in a wooden platter, the food was still bubbling hot! We enjoyed some good...More

This restaurant has great traditional dishes from Bahia, hence the name. The Moqueca with whitefish, shrimp and coconut milk is an absolute must. Beer is cold, place and staff are very friendly. Highly recommended for a very relaxed and casual evening.

After way too many beers watching Nigeria versus Iran, we ordered acaraje com camaráo fresco (fresh shrimp) and camaráo (shrimp - see photo). Very nice. Only thing I do not get is the "powdered tapioca" served in a separate bowl.

I never went there for the food, so I can't give a review about that, but it's a good place for non-brazilians to understand what "boteco" means. Tables on the sidewalks and a lot of people roaming about. Simple place to enjoy a cold beer...More

I love acarajé and was delighted to find in BH this tipical food from Bahia very well prepared. The beer is served in perfect temperature.

The food was greasy cold and overpriced. It's a shame they used the "Baiana" image to sell bad food.
