Lonely Planet review

Yorubá looks as if it's always prepared for the imminent arrival of an orixá (spirit or deity). Leaves lie scattered across the floor as candle flames flicker on the walls. Young waiters in red aprons stand at attention while something mystical transpires in the kitchen. Plates here are simply heavenly: plump shrimp and rich coconut milk blend to perfection in bobó de camarão, and the moqueca is simply outstanding.
