Restaurants in the centro histórico cater mostly to tourists, and they usually look better than they taste. Expect mostly Brazilian food such as carne seca (lightly salted dried beef), seafood stews, grilled steak with fries and farofa, or deep-fried pastries (empanadas). Farther out, there are a number of good restaurants by the edge of the Lagoa de Jansen.
