One of the best meal in our Brazil trip

We wend to this restaurant mainly because it was within a block from our hotel and our guide recommended it, but, we had one of our best meal in our whole 21 days of Brazil trip (we also went to some top restaurants in Rio, Iguazu and Cuiaba in those 21 days). Our server didn't speak good English... read more

Nice place in front of Calhau beach: we had the incredible carne de sol, the picanha version, and it is really wonderful. Portions are huge, quality is at the top. We wished also to try Brazilian wine, they have good option on the menu and the Rio Sol Reserva is good. Prices are a little high but it is all... More

A restaurant to get to know the flavors of Maranhao. In av Coastal in Calhau.Local of rustic (wooden structure) and cool overlooking the sea and ships anchored at the coast. See nice pictures. But the important thing is the cost-benefit ratio. Very good. Me and my friends ate an excellent fish: snapper on the grill. But as an accompaniment we... More

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. The view is magnificent. Unfortunately, I... More

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!!!!

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.
