I had the pescado ceviche and cerveza, it was excellent and came with plantain chips, a garlic dip, and a pico de gallo salsa. Service was friendly and fast. Total meal was $10, including 2 beer.

My husband and I were visiting nearby Las Olas Ecuador in hopes of moving there soon and the Las Olas team took us here for lunch. Best ceviche pescado EVER!! Huge portion and extremely tasty. We definitely can't wait to come back!

I first visited El Muelle Uno with a friend from Bahia. I ordered the chicken with veges and rice with sopa viche. It was excellent. The flavor of the soup was outstanding. Great value in Bahia. Definately recommend.

Incredibly good value for lunches. Great food and the staff always seems to throw in a little something extra. They even provide ice for your drinks which is an uncommon treat here! Plus they have survived three earthquakes!

This is a wonderful little restaurant with delicious food. They have a great grilled swordfish that is so delicious. Everything I have eaten there has been good. The owner is a very nice man. The place is on the water down by the wharf and is visited by a lots of locals. So you know it is good!

El Muelle Uno Parrillada is a simple but very good restaurant that provided us with quick, friendly service tonight for dinner. We saw the huge portions of other diners and so my husband and I decided to shared the BBQ chicken and order two baked potatoes. We had lots of salad to share, and could not have eaten another mouthful.... More

I really had higher hopes for this restaurant. View was lovely, staff was great and complimentary chips and dips were yummy. Maybe I just ordered the wrong thing, mixed seafood in garlic. I could tell as soon as I saw it was far from fresh so that worried me but when I tasted it I knew it was reheated because... More
