Decor is great, food is good

I love the regional food in every corner of the Northeast Brazil. Food from Maranhão is no exception. Recently, came with friends to Cabana do Sol for dinner to try the famous "care de sol", sun dried meat. I was immediately impressed by the decor, a large upstairs are made of wood and thatch.

Site: 9/10 Well-located restaurant right along sea side. Deco: 6/10 Simple and uncomplicated. Do not expectate any deco twists. Service: 7/10 Corteous, helping and pragmatic. No "fru-fru" treatment. Food: 10/10 Spetacular. Dishes are good for couples. Prefer meats and sea food over pasta. Pork ribs with pineapple is incredible!!!! Price: 9/10 Not expensive considering what the restaurant delivers. Overall: 9/10... More

we had 2 dinners in Cabana do Sol and we enjoyed the fresh fishes, in particular the shrimp skewers. I'd suggest to ask to have the separate dressing, so that you can enjoy the real taste of the dishes. Portions for 2 are generous. You pay about 20-25€ for one course meal plus beverages.

This is a place to eat an excellent "carne de sol". I and my wife asked a half potion that could be easily for three persons. The quality is very high and the price is quite fair.

The specialty food in this place is the North-East food. And they do it at the perfection. The restaurant have a huge room with enough place for a crowded public that looks for this place. The service is perfect, they have several waiters into the saloon and seems that they have no area to attend, so if you see one... More

The restaurant has a good range of local dishes that serves 02 or 03 peoples, like "carne de sol" and others. There are also some juices with local fruits in jar, but I advice you to order it without sugar. My dish and juice was excellent, you have to try it.
