Excellent food. We went back the day after. Had lamb chops first day, Picanha the second and bruschetta for starter. All courses were delicious. Wine list could be more extensive to match with the quality of the food. We had terrenoble carmenere which was good for the price. Good for the meat. Not enough body for the lamb.

The restaurant is located a bit far from the village, in the road to the ferry, so you must drive or take a cab if you're in the village. If you come from Porto Seguro, you may probably walk from the ferry. The restaurant is simple but nice and cozy, with good informal service. The food is great and prices... More

The restaurant is located close to the ferry boat to Porto Seguro. When we arrived, we thought we had taken the wrong decision. After looking at the menu, the waiter pushed hard for us to order the lobster, but we did not want. We ordered 4 other plates... The pasta with seafood was out of this world and the fish... More

The restaurant was ok from all points of you. However nothing special. Overall its marketing is better than the price-quality ration you can get.

I´m always skeptical about chefs (had some bad experiences), but this restaurant is perfect. The open-air but cosy chalet-like atmosphere, great service and good variety of wines and dishes impressed me as soon as I sat down. I ordered a medium-rare and that´s exactly what I got, plus the perfect risotto and lovely combination of tropical fruit in some of... More

Lovely setting and food - short taxi ride from centre over multiple speed bumps was worth it. Friendly service and lobster was excellent choice with lovely ice-cream, chocolate and passion fruit to finish. Highly recommended!

This was our first time in Arraial D'Ajuda and my wife and I were celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary. We checked Trip Advisor and Bistro d'Oliveira was the top ranked spot.
