Santarém Travel Guide

Santarém Eating & Drinking

Santarém has another "Encontro das aguas" so the fish-food is very popular and is present in the tipycal cuisine.

The local fish is great, some places where you can get very good food are:
  • Mascote, Pça. do Pescador, 10, (91)523-2844. A popular restaurant located on the waterfront. Over 50 years it has been one of the most popular and famous restaurantes in town. The palm-lined outside seating next to Praca do Pescador has a good view of the river Tapajos. The menu includes everything from sandwiches, pizzas, chicken, steaks and fish (tucunare and pirarucu are excelent!). All-you-can-eat lunch buffet is a good option, tasty and cheap. There is a regular live music on weekends and the place becomes a spot for a late night drink.
  • Nido, Mendonca Furtado, on the riverfront, between Assis Vasconcelos and 2 de Junho. For delicious home made ice cream using regional fruit go to Nido. Try the castanha, the best brazi nut ice cream you'll ever have! Tapioca, graviola, acai and bacuri were excellent too.
  • Peixaria Piracatu, Av. Mendonça Furtado, 174, (91)522-7580. Excellently prepared river fish such as surubim and tambaqui.
