Taken here on several occasions- there were 2 in Sao Luiz at the time I was visiting. Both serve the same menu and both really nice restaurants. The one on the beach front, in my opinion is the best, only because of the view. The service is good, everybody gets involved for birthday parties etc. Salted steak "elephant ear", any... More

We then ordered carne do sol as a starter with rice and beans and the local farofa with carne secco. The food was simply delicious. We never got around (glad we did not order everything at once) to order the main meal... More

Cabana do Sol is one of São Luis's best known regional restaurants. It is a spacious open veranda-like structure can seat several hundred people, but things go smoothly here. The dishes are HUGE, often enough for three people. So, order moderately ... Meat dishes, like carne de sol, are the kitchen's forte. These are served on a large platter, hot... More
