Salvador and the Bahia Coast Restaurants



Capim Santo

Capim Santo Review

Located in the heart of the quadrado, Capim Santo—which means lemongrass in Portuguese—is one of the best restaurants in town. Opened since 1985, the family-run business, which includes lodging, retains an essence of informality and coziness, even though service is super sharp and the seafood-based menu sophisticated enough to warrant a second branch in Sao Paulo. Reservations in high season are a must, where the flickering candlelight and jabuticaba caiprinhas make this one of the hottest, and most romantic, spots in Trancoso. If you decide to stay the night, you will find the good-value rooms are spread over a tropical garden with fruit trees and an outdoor pool.
