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.

I was there for dinner and we had a carne de sol fillet. We were 4 and we were not able to eat all the food the amount is massive but the quality is also good. The staff was very very gentle. I loved the service. The atmosphere is not sofisticated but its worth a visit

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
