This is the place to receive the royal treatment by a staff that really cares about you having a great time. The decor is very very nice. It has a great selection of cocktails, all made with natural fruits. The 'couvert' is among the best you can get in Brazil, with several savory appetizers. The downside is on the actual... More

I had dinner here several years ago when the exchange rate was even more favorable to the US dollar. We opted for a Friday lunch at 83 Reals per person. The entire restaurant is maintained to perfection and yet it is extremely comfortable. We brought a vintage french wine from the US and paid a 100 Real corkage fee. The... More

Felt completely mislead by the compliments for this place. It is at the level of a neighborhood Italian or French place in Europe. Fairly overrated and overpriced. Huge portions with lack of creativity. My grandmother does a better job presenting the food. Service very attentive and nice, almost the only good thing at this place.

What a charming little place!!!! It's a very warm atmosphere, inside a remodeled house, in one of the best neighborhoods of Sao Paulo. I had shrimp with curry sauce, and my father had the same but with champagne and caviar sauce instead. So good we almost ordered another one! Dessert was just as amazing! I told the waiter everytime I... More

A charming upscale restaurant, open for lunch and dinner. Pluses: - Very good service - Good Italian and French recipes - Very good wine list - Charming building Minuses: - Probably as expected for a classy, premium restaurant, it is not the place to go if you want to be surrounded by a hip young crowd.
