On the way to Pelourinho is the restaurant - Senac school. It specializes in Bahian food, is open daily and offers 2 types of menus: Food a la carte or buffet. The difference is 10 reales and both options are tasty but the buffet offers a big variety of fish and meat to choose from. Among them is the specialty of the region: Muqueca fish.
This hostel is on the most beautiful beach I've seen so far in my life. The Mahalo Restaurant is entirely made of wood and decorated with objects related to the sea, resembling something Hawaiian. The food is delicious and it's mostly sandwiches and seafood, with prices which are very reasonable. Mixed juices are very refreshing and the dishes are decorated with flowers. Those who like surfing and aesthetics, will love it, because everything in Mahalo is waves, sunsets, flowers and colors.
This restaurant is located in the same neighborhood where I lived for thirty years, the popular neighborhood of El Salvador, known as Cabula, at Edgar Loureiro 98B. The owner started very small and now this is one of the most popular restaurants in Salvador de Bahia. It is visited by famous people such as artists, singers, and everyday people. The secret is that this restaurant offers exotic cuisine like grilled seafood and tangerine juice to make your mouth water. Excellent service, value, and atmosphere, on top of the quality of the dishes served.
This restaurant is simply delicious. I only went for lunch and it was really a very good idea, amazing waiters, delicious food, drinks are very well done and very friendly , very worth the visit, because it has it all; tasty salads, sandwiches, sweetbreads, stuffed pancakes, very good :)
Couscous is only made in the northeast, with cornmeal, salt and a little water. It's served with eggs, milk and butter, or can be fried. It's the lifeblood of the local community, and this restaurant is a great spot for trying this specialty. This small restaurant has become famous for serving the dish with different toppings: with five cheeses, with chicken, or even sweet dishes like couscous with bananas! Well worth visiting to taste the delicacies.
When I arrived in Salvador, I started by asking the taxi driver for some advice, the kinds of tips that only locals know ... and he told me about this restaurant. It opened in the 1960's, and has been in the same location since 1974. Decorated like a fishing shack, it has a great menu ... crabs, cod balls, fish stew ... try the dish of the day, which is always fresh and delicious. The prices are quite reasonable: they offer starter, main course, drink and coffee, all for about 150 reais for 2 people.
Before going to Salvador, I read some blogs to see comments from other tourists ... and I saw a lot of good reviews about the Cira Acaraj, so of course, I had to try! I'm not a specialist, but it is really nice, crispy and delicious! You can order it with or without shrimp, or pepper ... Recommended
I've had the opportunity to go to this restaurant the other times I've been walking in Bahia. This restaurant has branches in Arraial D 'Ajuda and Trancoso. It's a place specialised in wooden oven cooking. It's super cheap, R $ 45.00 per kilo, and all the food is tasty and seasoned specially. There are several salads, many choices of hot dishes, and delicious snacks. Just make sure of one thing: follow the schedule, that is, as close to 12pm when it opens because by 17h, most of the special foods such as shrimp, crab, etc run out.
Delicious food in Northeast Brazil. I tried the shrimp moqueca (stew with shrimp, coconut milk, cilantro, onion, tomato and lemon juice), and caldinho of sururu (soup with mussels), two great classics of Bahian cuisine, and they were delicious. Another dish is the beef do sol (sun dried meat, like a little dry and tough steaks). The service is fast, prices not too expensive, and high quality food. Highly recommended.
SoHo restaurant is in the nautical Marina Bay complex which is very large and really lovely, which has famous architecture by David Bastos and which has been remodeled by Sig Bergamin. In view of the Bay of All Saints, the restaurant has a glass floor that allows you to see the sea :) I had a very good dish wrapped in foil and on fire. Great good, beautiful people, and a charming place. Worth a visit!
It's in the Historical Quadrado in Trancoso and is really good :)! It is 100% recommended because it is a nice, cozy, and charming place inside and out, with live music that brings more charm to the place. The food is delicious, especially the Camarão no Coco, a delight! Although I chose something different, I liked it a lot. Everything was delicious. Sit outside on the terrace, overlooking a special church. Worth the visit.
This bar, in Barra Grande Beach, features a sun terrace, in addition to good music (difficult to find here). You can enjoy a caipirinha, garlic prawns, and all the typical food of Bahia ... the best place to eat and enjoy the beach, with a great view of the bay!
This restaurant is inspired by a coastal town called "Vila Pereira", where today the district of Barra in Salvador is located. Pereira restaurant, which opened in 2009, specializes in fish and meat, with a menu of the most sophisticated and delicious food known. It has a cellar of fine wines of coveted origin, and a full restaurant menu. On Saturdays, a delicious 'feijoada' is served. The super comfortable environment is completed by the harmonious pleasure of the food. Take a look!
In the city of Salvador, you can enjoy Bahian food. The choices are dominated by seafood. This site is popular with locals, offering fine northeastern cuisine. The food is simple but tasty, and is a good option for a traveler on a budget. Be sure to try the evening porridge with meat and cheese curds! You can see rustic decor, with straw artifacts, calico banners and sculptures in clay. A great place to visit!
The Kentefrio is a bit no-frills, but it has a delicious shrimp empanada and other snacks. It's stood for about thirty years, and is an interesting stop in the historical centre. A good stop in the middle of the morning or afternoon.
There are plenty of options for accommodation in Praia do Espelho, but without a doubt, do Baiano is one of the most beautiful. It's just perfect, overlooking the beach, with wooden furniture, hammocks, cushions, and white Indian bed linen! The rooms are really spacious and comfortable, absolutely stunning. An amazing opportunity to spend the night in paradise. A tip: if you can, try the coconut candy!
