A bad experience: the meat we ordered was so hard we could not cut it or chew it... Fish was better but not of the same quality as Cabana do Sol. Go there instead!

You can have a very good lunch with local dishes, very well prepared. Must go when in Sao Luiz do Maranhão.

It's expensive and up to serve food similar to Cabana do Sol. It was great some time ago but quality went down and prices up. You'd have a better meal in Cabana do Sol.

It's a typical food from the northeast of brazil, the most popular character from this restaurant is the 'pasteis' (pastry)with a sweet pepper jelly, and the best, it's for free! Besides of that everything else is expensive, but the food tastes good too.

We ordered fish Pargo na brasa it was delicious. also I loved the seafood risotto. the restaurant requires you to drive or take a bus. it is close to Sao Marcos beach but... More

We had a very nice evening. Good service, interesting decoration and good food. Although my kids prefered the bananas from decoration we had a caldeirada da boa lembrança, that was enough for 3 adults. And they have a very nice cachaça as digestiv too.
