This is just your good simple and healthy Middle East restaurant with healthy food based in Mediterranean drills and kebabs, salads, and mezze with a Brazilian touch. Everything we had was good and very reasonably priced. Long history and I can understand why, honest, healthy and tasty

Decent place to eat middle eastern food. I'm still not sure what the fascination is with this type of food in Brasil, but it's a nice change from rice and beans. I have had the steak, chicken, and fish shish-kabob and all have been good.

Almanara is always a good option no matter where however this one I believe it is one of the best. Great environment, friendly staff and fast quality food. Mezze is a great way to start. Almanara salad is really good. Rise and lentils is a perfect option. Pineapple with mint juice is great.

This is a restaurant specializing in mediterranean/greek food, and their menu is an odd mixture. My traveling partners ordered the sesame chicken, which was delicious, and I ordered a roast beef sandwich that came on a very flat circle of bread not unlike pita, but not quite pita. It was toasted and tasted okay, but had way too much cheese... More

A great culinary experience is to taste thee food of a Country or Region as is prepared in other Country. This is the case of Almanara. I like Arab food, and have mostly tried it in Mexico, but I had a great dinner in London and now in Sao Paulo. The restaurant is comfortable, the ambient relaxed and the service... More

Had lunch with business client today. Incredible food. Hummus was great, tabule was incredible, kafta was nice. Homemade pita bread was to die for! Highly recommended!

We stumbled on this restaurant by accident on the way to a grocery store near our hotel, and it was a very happy surprise! Excellent Lebanese food, especially the beef kabob! Also great service in a quiet and relaxed ambience.
