We tried on several occasions to book this restaurant. Unfortunately without success. Eventually our hotel was able to call to confirm the restaurant was open. Unlike previous reviewers who said the place was noisy we were the only two people there. This was because we visited when carnival was on and so it was no reflection on the restaurant. The... More

A popular and remarkable place to enjoy the incredible food of Bahia, specially moquecas and other fish, crab and seafood dishes, in a folkloric atmosphere, with the kind waitresses dressed in lively local garments. Portions are huge, and you may die of excess, but a wonderful passing it would be. The only problem is the noise, directly related to the... More

This restaurant has been overrated by many people, so I decided to balance its culinary reception. The atmosphere is poor, the Bahian food is not par with Paraiso Tropical, nor Tereza, therefore cannot get the same rating. The food was above the desirable oil level, the fish tasted frozen, and the service is nice when you arrive but slip on... More

We eat there nearly once a week usually either Itapuã, Vilas or Camaçari. Good place to meet friends.

Great view of the sea, wonderful view of the sea, "carne ao sol" is a great starter. Service is a little slow "itapua" time but they are friendly. Enjoy the mixed muqueca! Come during the day, a little warm bit worth it!

You can find more than one in Salvador. Price and food are good. The atmosphere is quite simple. But worth trying.

Godo food, big portions, chance to share from a variety of different local tastes. Many locations in Salvador. The price is also fair, you can even say cheap compared to Rio or São Paulo.

"Ki" is where you want to go for authentic, delicious Muqueca. It's tucked away down a side street in Itapua - though its a quick and safe walk to nearby hotels, shopping center etc. Fresh, hot, delicious and plentiful. It's what you hope for in traditional Brazilian Muqueca. It's probably 20-30% pricier than other Muqueca options but the difference is... More
