Enjoyed an excellent sirloin lunch at Cabana do Sol. The food isn't 'fancy', just basic cooking, but very tasty. The restaurant was lively with lots of couples and family groups. The service was quick and friendly. The portions are a good size.

Good seafood restaurant, we visited for dinner and tried the rice with shrimp, crab and mussels, was very good and perfect cooked. They two different areas, one open and another one closed with air conditioned, recommended the close area, more comfortable no doubts. Recommended restaurant, and try the local fruit ice creams.

Delicious huge shrimps and dishes. Went with 10 friends and we had a blast. The shimp in the pumpking is a must. We also had the octopus rice. Be sure to be hungry because the dishes are humoungous,

We had "carne de sol de filé" (salted cured beef) , "cuxá" rice , cooked manioc and fried banana. Everything tasted very good. Giant portion. We ordered half and it served three people. Highly recommend for those interested in having a traditional local meal.

Great service and delicious food. We had the picanha and they served it perfectly cooked. We enjoyed sitting outside, but there are tables inside, as well.

Great place for big groups, large portions and excellent food. We took the advice of the waiter and it was great, everyone should try the "carne de sol"(sun meat). It was the best I've ever ate. We also ordered 2 other dishes that were really good but the sun meat was just amazing.

We had lunch there on a sunday. The place was packed full (always a good sign for restaurants, isn't it?). Food arrived shortly after our group was complete. Everything I tried was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the "Carne do sol". The waiters did a surprise serenade for my father-in-law's bday. I heard several of those, so the locals seem to... More

Excellent food for a fair price. Inside and outside dinning options and many choices of regional food. Great service with Valet parking option. For me it is a "must go" in the city.
