The restaurant opened in 1975 and restored a beautiful colonial building of the 19th Century, where it used to be the Trade Federation of the State of Bahia.

Besides being a rich and relaxed opportunity to celebrate with colleagues and participants of the PCST 2014, the Conference Dinner will be a moment to taste the most traditional dishes of Bahia, including acarajé, vatapá, coconut rice and crab’s moqueca. The buffet will be composed by about 40 dishes – half of which prepared with the traditional dendê oil (a reddish palm oil).

The Museum is opened to the public Monday to Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm, with free entry.
