    Saudosa Maloca is located in front of Belém (into jungle), therefore you need to get a boat in order to cross Guamá River and appreciate Belém on the other side.
    The restaurant has a lot of local meals and juices. Wonderful!

    Restaurante a Portuguesa: Traditional Food with a Touch of Portuguese

    by mircaskirca Updated Mar 10, 2007

    I really loved fish from the Amazon that I ate every day while travelling in the state of Para. Just for a little change once I decided to go to vegetarian restaurant and try some veggie from the Amazon, soya... I was looking for particular place but when I came there I found it was closed. There was another restaurant next to it which looked quite nice so I did not think twice, just entered.

    There was a quiet atmosphere in the restaurant. Service was excellent!

    Favorite Dish: Ther menu contained traditional favourites as well as some more adventurous dishes, mostly fish. With a help of waiter I chose pirarucu, also called "bacalhau da Amazonia" (codfish from the Amazon). They prepared it on a way the Portugueses do it and it was superb-quality and absolutely delicious!!

    The city's best kilo spot is undoubtedly Spazzio Verdi. The restaurant boasts a large range of good vegetarian dishes, usual beef and chicken, local specialities (pato no tucupi, tacaca, manicoba, moqueca, caruru, fish), mediterranean dishes, variety of sushi and good selection of cakes and pies mainly made of local fruit.

    The restaurant is opened Monday through Saturday from 9am to 6pm.

    There is another restaurant in shopping Iguatemi, Trav. Padre Eutiquio 1078

    Favorite Dish: It was dinner time when I passed by so I only had a light meal. I took sushi, tried some vegetarian dishes and salads and finished with a slice of cupuacu cake. Everything was freshly made and very tasty!!

    Sorveteria Cairu: Not to Be Missed!

    by mircaskirca Updated Mar 4, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The specialized ice creams of the Amazon are one of Belem's treats. Made from a variety of fruits, they are delicious and exotic and not to be missed. There are numerous flavours, mostly made from fruits without English names. The best thing to do is to go and sample.

    I immediately became totally addicted :) Luckily I stayed in Belem enough time to get the opportunity to try the great part of the flavours :)

    Favorite Dish: My favourite flavours are cupuacu, bacuri, acai, tapioca, castanha-do-Para, mangaba, graviola...

    Carioca - Comidas Tipicas: Diversity of Tastes and Flavours

    Beside countless stalls with different products Ver-o-Peso market also has a huge dinning-hall where you find countless bars and restaurants offering food and beverage that are typical of the state of Para and especially of Belem.

    It's a simple place with local people. It gets quite busy in the morning. For breakfast they offer different kinds of pastries accompanied by coffee or natural juice (from all imaginable and not imaginable fruit from the region), mingau (manioc flour cooked in milk with grated coconut on the top) or acai.

    But the most people come there to have lunch. I wanted to taste tacaca and to my surprise it was hard to get it. But at last I found the right place.

    Favorite Dish: The woman at Carioca - Comidas Tipicas, had everything from pato no tucupi, tacaca, manicoba, vatapa and caruru. I finally had my tacaca and I loved it!! The taste was simply delicious!! It was certainly the most unusual new food during the whole trip.

    Boteca das Onze: Great Views, Great Food Interesting Surroundings

    by travgran Written Nov 7, 2006

    Boteca das Onze is in the historic Casa das Onze Janelas building which also hosts a modern art gallery. It is located next to the Fort on the waterfront.
    The food was excellent, the service good. The prices are not the cheapest, but much less than you would pay for a similar dining experience in Europe of the USA. Great fish dishes and delectable desserts
    I sat out on the breezy terrace watching the comings and goings on the Amazon. Inside the stone bulding the dining rooms were dimly lit to underscore the historic atmosphere.
    The house was built as the home of a Sugar Baron and has been a military hospital and a prison before it was restored into its present incarnation as an art gallery and restaurant.

    Estacaos: A popular upper class "por kilo" restaurant

    by melosh Written Jul 25, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant describes itself as a gourmet "por kilo" restaurant. It is new with lots of dinning space. It was very popular for upper class Brazilian families for Sunday afternoon meals. There was a beautifully voiced guitar player who sang a wide rang of popular Brazilian songs, but the main attraction was the gourmet food. The cost on Sunday was about 32 railes per kilo (A few less on weekdays). Considering that a typical full plate weighed about 1/3 of a kilo, this is still very economical. Drinks are extra.

    Favorite Dish: Since you chose your food from a large buffet, it is possible to sample a lot of different dishes. Everything was great.

    La Massilia: French with a Brazilian Touch

    by NedHopkins Updated May 31, 2006
    Le Massilia

    This small restaurant seats about 24 people in its main dining room; an adjacent, unfinished space seats as many again.

    The owner is a Frenchman from Marseilles (hence the name, the Greco-Roman name for the colony).

    The night I was there all the other diners were French, attesting to the fact that there is a sizeable French presence in Belem -- and that the restaurant is very good.

    (Though I didn't know it when I was in Belém, there's a hotel attached to the restaurant -- or maybe it's the restaurant that's attached to the hotel. From pictures on the internet it seems nice; and its room prices, at US$24-36, are quite good.)

    Favorite Dish: The terrine du chef (R$24 or US$8) would not embarrass a chef in Lyon.

    The langouste (R$39), the most expensive item on the menu, wasn't very good -- langouste anywhere in Brazil isn't very good -- but the vegetables and condiments were superb.

    Basically, the old dock station situated on the riverfront has been done up so that the warehouse now houses lots of restaurants and bars and shops. If you're in Belem, you have to go here, its outstanding.

    Food ranges from Chinese to Italian to Local and they also have their own microbrewery there, at night time the place gets quite full, and the ambience is excellent, they have a horizontal elevator with a live band aboard moving up and down the restaurants playing to the people below, really really cool.

    During the day the buffet lunches there are simply out of this world, so much choice and very well priced.

    Favorite Dish: There's more than one restaurant so its hard to say, but definitely definitely check out the lunch time buffets there.

    Governors Residence: Outstanding restaurant, but COLD

    by johnkebab Written Feb 22, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bit poo, but the resto is to the right

    The restaurant is located in the old Governors residence, a nice old building located next to the fort, the service staff are excellent and they normally have a live band to serenade the night away, when the chef has just cooked something fresh i.e. starters, the waiters come around the restaurant with the fresh food on a tray, so even if you're eating you can have whatever has just come out of the oven, or not.

    The other thing I remember about the restaurant is how cold it was, v.v.v. cold, take a jumper.

    Favorite Dish: I had a steak of some sort, but the food was all excellent, nice desserts too.....

    La em Casa Restaurant: Tipical foods

    by sahori Updated Jan 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A good place to try the local food: manicoba, pato no tucupi (duck in tucupi sauce), local fish and different kind of desserts prepared with local fruits like cupuacu, acai, bacuri...

    Favorite Dish: Duck in tucupi sauce. Tucupi is prepared with manioc root and jambu. Jambu leaf has an undescriptive taste, it is a little bit spicy and has a kind of anestesic effect on your mouth.
