    A charming seafront venue with superb sushi

    Vesuvio Praia is the sleek seaside sister of Bar Vesúvio, a historic venue located in downtown Ilheus. In this oceanfront rendition, you’ll find the same eclectic menu of delectable Brazilian dishes, albeit with the addition of sushi and other Japanese delights.

    The sweeping sea views come courtesy of its large sliding windows – it’s a popular spot for a post-beach aperitif. Staff close the windows and crank up the air conditioning on sweltering days to give diners a break from the oppressive Bahian heat. It’s a tad pricier than most Illheus restaurants but worth the splurge.
