This popular local spot is huge and features enormous salad bars and buffets. It looked to be the kind of place that large multi-generational parties go to really chow down. The food was quite acceptable, and abundant.

Rascal has a very pleasant atmosphere, excellent salad bar, good pasta and great service. Unfortunately it is a bit expensive for a weekday lunch. I recommend the "grelhados", as you can also visit the salad bar

I stepped into this venue and made me a good impression: clean, not too noisy and....with a good smell! I choosed to have only the buffet and in my opinion it was th right choice: it is huge, various, and with a good quality of the food offered. the only thing to improve: language skills of the waiters! there were...

How come such good reviews? It's a fast food chain, basically. There's nothing special about it in terms of ambiance, decor, service, food, purpose, etc. It's just a better looking restaurant service industrialized fast food dishes. And so expensive for that!

A large Italian-style eating emporium, beloved of Paulistanos and visitors. Food impeccable, service very good, and general atmosphere delightful. An unmissable experience. We went at lunchtime on a Friday, but it is said to be equally good in the evenings.

These guys took buffet restaurants to another level. The staff isn't very helpful, but you'll always find good food. As any other buffet, it's often busy.

It's a chain but the buffet and pizzas are fantastic. Service is also wonderful. The thick crust vegetarian pizza is my go to. One of my favorite restaurants in Brazil!

There is a wonderful choice of salads, hams, cheeses, pizzas, breads, fishes, olives and so on at the buffet, plus the hot dishes, with several pastas and polpetone. You can go every day of the week and not get bored! There are many addresses in São Paulo, in the Shopping Centers too.

When I go there I always choose the self service buffet there are all sorts of salads, cheese, hot dishes. My number one choice is the green ravioli filled with buffalo cheese. It is not a cheap restaurant but the food choice and quality will not deceive even the gourmets.
