I've been to this place many times, but the last two was really average. My plate arrived both times cold and unseasoned. I used to love their Thai style octopus, but lately has been a disappointment. The place is nice and on Sundays they have a special space where they sell typical sweets from Bahia with the cooks dressed also... More

Opposite the beach with a nice view this restaurant offers food in an average quality. Be aware they have different menu card for domestic and foreign guests - with very different prices! We took one of four special day offers, linguine au fungi, for R$ 37 while standard dishes start in higher prices. We saw the daily offers written on... More

Yes, food is only decent... when it is decent. Only the sea breeze is a real attractive. But, for that, there are other.

Returning to this restaurant after more than one and a half year. Menu card pretty the same. Friendly staff, fast delivery and again a delicious Filet Nativo. Prices ok. If you visit the Praia Barra area, this place is recommended.

Really nice food - a more interesting menu than most Brazilian places, offering more Italian style pasta and pizza. Good beer and good service - I'm sure we'll be back :)

The restaurant faces the ocean and the food is decent. I enjoyed the special lunch menu. Good for the price and at a nice location.

You can eat great food while enjoy the view of the beach. Best dish option is fish, or seafood in general.

We started with what has to be the best pinocolada. Then had the most amazing fish dish with creamy banana mash, palm hearts and pineapple. We also had some broccoli rice which was devine. A definite repeat visit.

This is a good place to have a few drinks and enjoy a nice late lunch after a day at the beach! If you are nearby on a sunday don't miss the "acarajé" stand right in front of the restaurant - they serve delicious typical food!

This place speaks of his own, great view of Barra beach, certainly has a good Menu (Have tried most dishes here) but what I truly love here is the "Moqueca Mixta", now my wife and I run by there every weekend to have a nice Moqueca, fantastic flavor, very well served with Coco Rice, Farofa de Ovos, Pirao and fantastic...
