Bar Zulu is off the beaten track yet in a very atmospheric and buzzy street. We went there for lunch and a very friendly staff member recommended a local dish. The portions were very generous and we cannot rate our meal highly enough. A plus...More

Well thats a shame both very popular dishes. Arroz dende is our invention and extremely popular .Burgers and chips alwasys a winner but a little different in Zulu. It was a rocking night no excuse but perhaps it had an effect.

The place has an extensive drink list and it seems to be a good place to have some cocktails. I also ordered some dinner-a pork dish. The meat was overcooked and pretty dry. I could deal with that though. What irritated me was that when...More

A nice little restaurant in a more quiet part of Salvador's historical center. They serve great moqueca at a reasonable price (for this area). Good selection of beer.

I ate here twice during my four days in Salvador. The shrimp moqueca (coconut milk stew) is so delicious that I had to go back for it. The portions are generous and you can sit outside and enjoy the sounds of Pelourinho while you eat....More

This a good cafe/bar linked to the nearby hostel. Its run by an English guy who is friendly and efficient. Clearly very popular with younger people on a budget - food is good quality.

There is no other place like Zulu in Pelourinho and we are very proud of this fact.We offer vegetarian and international food as well as the typical Bahian dishes that everyone wants to try along with one of a kind cocktails and refreshing juices. We take after hip places around the world and understand the value in costumer service, comfortable ambiance and fun crowds. Come here to watch sports TV, use our wi-fi or find out interesting tourist information while enjoying a delicious Caipirinha. Sit outside and enjoy the breeze or sit inside and jam to the music, your choice!
