Had a moqueca for dinner here. It was delicious, very large portions for one person, and reasonably priced. Service was friendly and the patio is really nice to dine in.

We stayed at this hotel and enjoyed our first evening dinner here. Moqueca and the steak were delicious. It was a very relaxing and romantic setting. Service also great and they accommodated my young children.

Lovely restaurant with patio in Pelourinho centre. Good food and reasonable prices. Great wine menu as well. Service is nice but could be a bit slow sometimes, but I've noticed that's something quite common in Salvador/Bahia. Don't miss the rooftop bar with sea view!
