I came across this restaurant prior to my trip but did not seriously consider it until some of our friends recommended it to us. They ate here three nights in a row and raved about it. The restaurant was fully booked some nights, however, when we went--we were the only ones there. The restaurant is decorated with some modern fixtures but overall, it is pretty laid back.
The drinks were nice and strong. I was surprised to read all the glowing reviews of the good service here because I found the hostess/server to be quite dry. I tried asking her a few questions about the food and restaurant and she reacted as if we were bothering her when in reality we were the only people there.
The food is quite pricey (think nice night out in North America); however, it was very good. They have a mix of different kinds of food, not strictly Bahian so one has choices. We started out with the ceviche and it was great--fresh, tangy and savoury. The mains are quite heavy hitters so you'll want to have enough room for them. I had the beef filet in garlic olive oil, fried egg with truffles and potato chips. It was extremely good. The quality of the meat was there, the potato chips were excellent and it just hit the spot. We ended with the Doce de Leite petit gateau and it was absolutely divine.
They serve up local classics and do a solid job of it. The shrimp with cheese and tapioca was my favorite. Their fish with roasted potatoes was pretty simple, but good as well. Ambiance is fairly casual, you're seated around a hotel pool and the lighting is a little harsh... but service was a plus and we had a nice experience overall.
