Spanish experience in São Paulo

Don Curro is one of the main restaurants in town. The menu is dedicated to paella and other specials from Barcelona, Spain. Allow at least two hours to enjoy all the dishes from "tapas" to the paella. The desserts are also great.

Extremely expensive for what it offer. Trust me! I've tried real good Spanish food and paella. Don't spend your time and money. However I must say service is good. It's a shame, but now I can guess why it was far from full. They should rethink their prices.

Very nice decor, well educated waiters. However, food is just good, not inventive or novel, but extremely expensive for what they serve, and I did not even get to the paella, which costs a bit more than others. With one Sangria jar (r$60), the dinner for 2 got to 360 reais. Food is good but not great, and the place... More

Good place for business and family dinner. A pricy place, but... More

heard about it for years, and finally went. so much to choose from, wound up having only apetizers - but the best ever. Baked oysters to die for! next time going in a group to have the paella.

The restaurant is built around the concept of consistent quality… and they really live to it. The paella is like nothing you have tasted before and the fish in salt crust is to die for.

This is one of the most traditional spanish restaurants in Sao Paulo. Their paella is excellent and it is huge. The menu says it serves 2 but, it actually serves 3 people, easilly. Service was very, very good. Yes, it is on the pricey side but, it is well worth the visit.
