I have been eating this buffet off and on for seven years. This restaurant has what I value most, healthy, fresh, excellent tasting food! I don't dine hear to eat a lot of meat, I come here for the delicious fire roasted bellpepers in olive oil &garlic and the seared ahi/salmon rolled in sesame seeds. Occasionally, at the pasta bar,...

When I stared living in São Paulo, it was one of my favourite places to dine. It offered good service, delicious food and casual ambiance. Over the years, the ambiance remained the same, but the food and the service have changed drastically. They started employing a rapid staff turnover, so instead of having the staff who even greeted me by... More

Had dinner one night after work with my peers. This was the end of a very long day, which actually started the day before flying down from Charlotte, NC (USA) to Sao Paulo (GRU airport). Customer and internal meetings right after I landed on the overnight flight. We went to Rascal's for an early (for my Brazilian peers) dinner, and... More

I love going there with my family, specially because kids at age of my son (3 years) don't pay. In this case the cost benefit is even better! But talking about the food, I have nothing to complain.. great variety, great quality and great execution! Better than a lot of meet houses in SP.

Right by Avenue Paulista. Very large dining area and the service is OK considering the volume. The Chaipirinha was obviously pre made mix and "OK" at best. The selection of dishes was outstanding. The quality was good to very good. Exceptional pasta bar fro Brazilian standards but do not expect what you are used to getting in Italy. Overpriced but... More

First of all it is a buffet but a great one. Fresh quality ingredients + good execution + good service = great time. Every few minutes the wooden oven sends flat breads, warm Italian ciabatta and others. The pastas are cook to order as the beef. The salads are of great variety and are a good reason to visit their... More

I don't like buffets but it's worth making an exception for Rascal. Huge variety of constantly refreshed appetizers and salads. Fast and helpful service. Our selected mains were equally good. All served in an attractive environment I would describe as up market industrial. A busy, bustling place. Worth a visit

Had the opportunity to have buffet at this place. Let start by saying that the selection was excellent. As other reviewers note, it is a but pricey, but well worth it. The salad bar is superb and the warm food station is excellent. During my visit it appeared to be a bit heavy on the pasta but the manager assured... More

We have been going to Sao Paulo one to several times a year for the past 20 years. There are lots of restaurants in the huge city and many have opened restaurants in the States. The one which is my favorite is Rascal, specially the one on Alameda Satos location; phone number 11 3141 0692. There are 9 of them... More

Neighborhood Profile
Jardins
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighborhoods: 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 neighborhood 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.
