UXUA Quadrado

UXUA's kitchens offer Bahian cooking with a very regional emphasis, and presented with the same joy and pride which food is served in any local home. Ingredients include produce from UXUA's own garden and other organic farms of Trancoso, as well as the fr

We stayed at Uxua and dined at the restaurant one night, and then also did a cooking class to learn how to make (and then dined on) the moqueca a different night. Food was excellent - in particular the prawns in spice was delicious, as was the ceviche. And the moqueca was very good - also a lot of good so definitely recommend sharing. Atmosphere is beautiful - sat outside looking upon the quadrango under the lanterns of a big tree with local musicians playing live music. Service is attentive and speaks English well. Highly recommend!

Restaurante Bar Encontro dos Amigos

Local privilegiado em meio a natureza, requinte e simplicidade no coração de Trancoso.

Reviewed By DutchCarioca

Having observed for four nights in a row that this place was by far the most popular place in the Quadrado area although low season, we imagined that to be testament to its quality. After waiting for a table to come available, mostly outside, street side. Very accessible prices, quite rare for restaurants in this area of Trancoso. House wines (red, white & rosé) for BRL 75 a bottle. Dishes between BRL 40-85. We had the mixed seafood platter, the shrimps VG, shrimp risotto, and spaghetti bolognese. All very good food, prepared simply delicious without much fuss. When paying the bill, I could see that they managed to produce magic in a small, 2 staff kitchen that was very clean and organised. Highly recommended for informal dinner & drinks.

We visited more than once as part of a wedding party. A very good selection of all types of foods catering to all tastes. Self service so you take and get only what you want and need and they weight it. Only problem was that lunch for 2 yesterday with two beers each was over US$60 - and that was after a 10% group discount! Maybe we are greedy but we didn't feel that stuffed upon leaving.

Capim Santo

Reviewed By DutchCarioca

Giving this restaurant a 3 star rating would be too harsh, while 5 stars would be too generous. Given the very high price level I evaluate them at such high-end level. The food and service are good, but most are not memorable. The Asian based ‘camarões ensopados’, a shrimp curry is nice, but a flat taste, not spicy at all. The filet mignon and fish & shrimp dish just nice. Excellent was the dessert pavlova with maracujá. The house made ice cream sampler and zuccotto just nice. The four of us had no starters, just 4 main dishes, 4 desserts, 4 soft drinks and one bottle of one of the cheaper wines (BRL 135) made a bill of 718, without the 10% service charge that I was asked, if satisfied, to pay separately (?). So expect at least BRL 150-200 per person. Although relatively small 4 x BRL 11 = 44, we were surcharged for live music. Serious? Since this is the restaurant’s own decision, I think that such a surprise is rather cheap and disrespectful of your clients, especially if you already charge expensively for your food and drinks. For about 20% less we had a more memorable dinner at nearby Jacaré do Brasil. So all in all disappointed having expected much more for such a high price level.

Quality excellent, fresh and made to order. The chef and staff were charming and attentive. They will create american dishes such as a twice baked potato with cheese and bacon - the most delicious I have ever had!

Tapioca da Sandra

Tapioca Sandra is a place where friends and family enjoying the best sweet and savory tapioca Trancoso- of BA.

Reviewed By Funkysmurfy

Large tapiocas, served with a variety of fillings, both standard and more esoteric.I tried chicken with tomato, basil, coalho cheese and aubergine pure. Superb.Good hot pepper sauce available too. The Tapioca itself was perhaps not the thinnest and crispiest I've ever eaten - but it needs to be quite robust to hold the generous amounts of filling.Good taste. Good value (for Trancoso's inflated eating scene). Highly recommended.

Reviewed By DutchCarioca

This is not a restaurant, but more an option for a street side snack instead of a full meal or the sweet tapiocas as alternative for a dessert after having your meal at a restaurant. Delicious tapiocas. Very, very generous with the fillings. Brisk business with a constant coming and going of clients, locals and tourists, on an otherwise slow Sunday evening in low season Trancoso.
