I booked a month or two in advance and utterly indulged in a "once-in-a-lifetime" dining experience. This restaurant is expensive (very!). The full 12-course tasting menu is priced at $R420 and a service charge is then also included. I was happy to pay this for the phenomenal food and experience, though. (Note: An a la carte meal - starter, main... More

Very famous restaurant in São Paulo. The food is good, very good, but it lacks this small touch of talent that turn excellent into brilliant. The service is rather amateurish and should be object of more attention from management. The visual of the place is absolutely not interesting. On top of it all, the prices are too high when compared... More

I drank a glass of Chateau Petrus with an increadible lamb. The egg entrance was amazing too, and the chocolate desert wrap it all up wonderfully. Really worth a visit!

Most probably, the best experience I had so far in Brazilian, especially when it comes to try new Brazilian cuisine, using local ingredients from this endless country. The setting is casual and friendly, service efficient and helpful and the attractive menu makes it difficult for you to choose. Not having time to go through a complete tasting menu, we chose...

The atmosphere is simple and cosy, the starters are all full of surprises and the moqueca de langostinos is wonderful! Great place in SP.

Simply decorated interior, but very warm atmosphere. Interesting wine list with a good selection of by the glass wines. Very nice local dishes with a modern and creative twist (including in the presentation). Excellent service. Overall a great evening.

Perhaps the best meal I had in South America on this visit. The waiter was a bit pushy at first- didn´t want to show me the lunchtime menu but maybe because he didn´t understasnd me. Excellent wine & lovely fresh food- lots of vegetables with the fish- this is rare, well done. Th bread basket is a bit pricey but... More

Had lunch at this fabulous restaurant during our short trip to São Paulo. Everything was truly amazing. We arrived some time after 1pm and did not have to wait at all. We were promptly seated and offered cocktail recommendations. We tried the caju and três limões caipirinhas, both were great but the latter was definitely my favorite. The mixture of... More

Staying in Jardins

Neighbourhood Profile
Jardins
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighbourhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighbourhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
