This is a cozy place for big groups (like business dinners) - the staff are very friendly. The food was quite ok as well. Indoor garden with a pond adds to a nice ambience.

It used to be a great place to bring visitors - they had an excelent feijoada buffet on Wednesdays. Unfortunately they replaced it for a bland, small and ugly a la carte serving that is not worth the visit.

Very bad experience, expensive for the service, flys around the buffet, it is not well maintained, the food was not cooked well or overcooked in other cases, the paella was terrible

Had a business lunch here on a weekday when most of the other clientele also seemed to be busniess types. Very pleasant outdoor ambience in a well maintained garden setting with tall, attractive trees and birds hopping about. Not a skyscraper to be seen, which makes a nice change for SP. Normally I find a salad bar is a depressing... More

The "rain forest" decoration is amazing, feelling like on an island in Sao Paulo jungle rock city. Food is very tasty - Wines excellent choice. Sounds good for business, friends, families

I did not expect such a pleasant outdoor seating judging from the entrance of the restaurant. Due to the light rain, we sat indoors, but really enjoyed the view. The food was good with a nice salad bar with some great hot options. You also have a choice of meat entree. I had a delicious grilled fish (Badejo) with grilled... More

Charming restaurant. Great place to hang out with friends or have a date. It's a wooded place which makes it an inviting place in hot days. Food is ok. Bills around US$ 50 per person, no drinks included. On Sundays, you have a buffet (~US$ 45 per person) and kids are welcome.

You will not foresee what is inside the walls when driving down the street. There is a huge patio, with a little lake, big trees, a beautiful ambiance. It is not a small cozy place, it is a big restaurant, a very good place to be with friends for a couple of beers and to let the time pass by... More

One of the few open air restaurants in SP. Decent food, quick service. Ideal for business meals and group meetings.

It works perfectly for a family of three boys with high voltage: 6 years old and twins of 1y and 10 months old. They have a special place for kids with the "aunties" to look after them. For those who find themselves in similar situation...do I have to say more about this restaurant? Although the price is a little bit... More
