The best restaurant at the Docas

The Docas is a great space to eat, drink, chat and see the river and, at the Docas, the best for eat is the "La em Casa".

This is the second time I visit Belem as a tourist, and also the second time I visit this restaurant, as their regional amazon dishes are very well prepared and tasty. The manage to harmonize the strong flavours in a way that you taste them all, but do not suffer one overpowering taste over others. Love their fish dishes! The... More

There are many options on the typical local cuisine based a lot on the TUCUPI - a sauce from cassava root - with a special taste and strong indigenous influence. Reasonable price and nice location at Estacao das Docas. Crowed at lunch time on weekends.

The chef mix local flavors and the result is a very tasty food with great quality. The deserts are also something else. Very good, with lots of combination of local cheese, fruits and chocolat.

This restaurant has two strengths. The first is its location. Located on Doca Station, it offers a unique view of the river. Dispenses the walls and the entire view is through a glass wall. The other strong point is the food. Maybe a little more expensive than other restaurants, but the final quality is what matters. Try regional dishes like... More

Located right on the river in Belem in the beautiful estacao das docas mall, this restaurant has a nice menu of authentic traditional local foods. The dishes are very modern in their style and presentation however. I had the filhote croquettes with manioc flour and Jambu rice which is an herb that numbs your tongue as you eat. The fish...

The docas are a a wonderful place to walk admiring the ancient yellow cranes and the fine restored warehouses that now house restaurants, shops, a theater, some history of the city and ATM's that will actually recognize your bank card. La em Casa is one of a couple of restaurants offering an extensive, if somewhat pricey lunchtime buffet of traditional... More
