Lá em Casa (Back Home) is a traditional restaurant that used to be regarded as the best in Belém.

Unusual, that is, if you're not from Parà. This restaurant was the first to serve local food prepared with international quality standards, and then to use local ingredients, including leaves that make your tongue tremble and other mysterious ingredients from the Amazon forest, in creative recipes or unusual combinations. Still today a great place tu surprise your taste buds

The restaurant history is interesting. The food quality and prices not. We ordered a mix of typical food from Para and Belem: crab, duck, fish and other local food. None of them tasted delicious, maximum average. Portions were on the small size as well, even though the price was fairly expensive (a dish for 2 costs around 120 reais). Overall,... More

"Lá em Casa" has been famous for many years as one of the best restaurants of Belém. And it still is! Its new address at charming "Estação das Docas", the former warehouses of Belém's old port - totally renovated and air-conditioned, adds awesome views of Guajará Bay and its sunsets to any meal. Lunch buffet offers a fantastic variety of... More

Waiters were very nice, food was delicious, live music relaxing. It gets crowded after 1pm. It's a little expensive but it's worth the buffet. Ask for a Tijuca beer and relax.

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".

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.
