Don't know why Restaurant (up market) and adjacent Cafeteria (average) have the same name and reviews all mixed up !!! The restaurant is Good! Good food, good service, not cheap but OK. Good choice of dishes and wines. Very well appointed attractive place with style.

visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of
