It is a good restaurant, it has a spicy price because there isn't anything fancy. I had the popular dish " Carne de sol" it is ok nothing spectacular, the side dishes are very good, all of them local cuisine.

A large and quite popular restaurant where you have a choice as to seating depending on your need for AC comfort or not. If you can get your stomach past the sea of yucky yellow tablecloths and similar clad waiters, the menu is varied but not inexpensive. The sizable cow's heart that is impaled along with other goodies on the... More

It is about 20 minutes from the center of Sao Luis. Facing the beach. Comfortable, good local food and attentive service. An excellent crab dish and local fish, well seasoned and grilled.

I and some friends spend an afternoon there, we had a lunch and we drink some beer. We spent about R$75,00 by person. The food is good, the staff is good and the decoration is very atractive. But I don't recommend for anyone who don't want to pay a lot of money by a lunch or dinner.

This is an attractive restaurant, right on the beachfront in Sao Luis. However, the seafood dishes are of quite average quality. Given that Sao Luis is an excellent city for frutos do mar, Cabana do Sol is a disappointment. It's an attactive facility, always quite crowded ( with the "in crowd" of Sao Luis) but there are better places to... More

French usually say the bigger the restaurant, the worse its food. I confess I prefer small bistros with a much more individual treatment, but Cabana do Sol was a good experience. This is a big restaurant in a 2-story house along Litoranea Avenue, with elevator, well decorated. The menu is wide, ranging from sea food, meat to other regional specialties.... More

The Carne do Sol is well served, serves 5 people with its sides for a average high price. The salad tastes good but is really expensive.

This restaurante has great ocean view and facilities. It looks beautiful, clean, modern and sort of fancy. The food is also great, expensive though. If you are a couple, order the "half dish", it´s more than enough even you take a child along. The main and more traditional dish is the "Carne de Sol fillet". Try to get a table... More
