This restaurant is now called El Nativo while Santa Luzia is a fast food hamburger bar in the corner of the restaurant. Food is as good as it was but slightly more expensive. Very good Moqueca de camarao R$99 for 3 people.

This restaurant is just awesome. Coming from the third beach it's the very first one. Don't be scared the rustic atmosphere, the locals eat there and it offers a great view to the sea. The food is extremely tasty. Just remember that the portions are big enough to feed two adults without problems. So you are not willing to share... More

Brazilian coast restaurants are famous for delicious fish dishes, but what you experience in Santa Luzia is really amazing. The red fish they serve there is absolutely worth recommending! Anytime again!

Whoever likes to eat sea food knows that octopus is very delicate when it comes to cook it as it may get chewy if overcooked, well the chef of this place knows the way. The octopus was tender and tasteful and very well balances with the seasoning. It comes with 3 sides so you might want to share!

The athomsphere of the restaurant does not exist, there's only the nice view over the sea. The Service and the langostas were okay. 50 BRL for 1,5langostas is cheap but i suggest spending more money somewhere else for better meal.

Well first of all the place looks very dirty, full of flies, bathrooms are disgusting, food was cheap but my husband felt very bad this same night. I can't affirm for sure it was the food, but that was the only thing he ate that day. Anyways I don't recommend and wouldn't come back.

There are some nice little places that don't appear special but that are something. You know, those that only the locals know about, almost run down but serve the best of food? Well, this one isn't one of them. Simple? Yes. Rundown? Slightly, but to the acceptable level? No expensive? I agree. Except that what you get goes with the... More

It is only thanks to Clarindo, the wonderful gentleman who wheeled our luggage to our nearby hotel, that we learned of this simple, non-assuming restaurant located on the 3rd beach. Diners seemed to frequent the place at all hours. The menu had a million options and we weren't sure what to try, but after a little guesswork, we decided on... More

This is a very basic place with no frills but it serves the best food that we have had in Morro de Sao Paulo (and probably Brazil). They serve authentic local dishes, portion sizes are large and the food is extremely tasty. This is one not to miss when you are in Morro de Sao Paulo!
