Garçom simpático e prestativo. Mesmo com o lugar cheio e a demora dos pratos não deixou de ser atencioso conosco. Recomendamos o Fumeiro na chapa. Preço razoável para o prato. The waiter was really kind to us, even though the place was swarming with people,...More

Open restaurant on the beach front, good to watch people walking along. We tried the famous seafood dish - a moqueca de peixe : it must be an acquired taste. Oily and without much seafood actually. Disappointing.

We went there influenced by all the stellar reviews about tasty, abundant and affordable portions and we found none of the above. We shared a moqueca with a beer and paid 100R$. It was ok overall but I won't repeat. Many people say it used...More

I was there during Carnival parades and they were still really good with service. Had the Moqueca which was fantastic! I enjoyed it so much that I returned the next night and had it again.

Moqueca de camarao is my dish. Staff friendly, food excellent, place simple. Many locals meet there afterwork. Whenever I decide to eat in Barra, this is my place, for 5 years now.

Nothing fancy about this place but if you're looking for good food at a cheap price then it's definitely worth going. The staff are friendly and helpful, 2 actually spent 10 mins in the rain trying to flag a taxi for us! The food is...More

If you want a tasty and relatively cheap Moqueca (typical of Bahia) then this is the place! We chose the one with shrimps and octopus and we were more than satisfied! Only issue currently is that there are roadworks just in front of it... But...More

Went twice as I enjoyed their wonderful prawn moqueca so much. Under £10 with a bottle of beer. Only problem was not sitting too near to roadworks outside which created a lot of dust. Otherwise great.
