Main restaurant in the hotel. Good food but expensive, especially drinks & wine. Service is excellent.

Very good restaurant in the Intercontinental hotel. Menu is not long, but very good and creative food. Does not taste a chain hotel restaurant, it does have it own personality

I enjoyed breakfast and lunch during my 5 night stay at the Intercontinental Sao Paulo. The food was great but the staff was absolutely outstanding!

I was a little bit frustrated by the quality I was expecting and what was served. The Japanese Food Buffet served last week, on april 8th had to little sashimi, and it was not remarkable sashimi. Sushi was as big as those from foodmart - almost like fast food sushi. The real point is that it was poorly served, and... More

I was quite honestly surprised by the excellence of the Japanese Chef they brought in for a 3 day banquet of exquisite Japanese cuisine.

The salad buffet was reasonable but the main course was completely disappointing: I never saw an Argentinian steak as over cooked, tough, and greasy as the one I was served. It was a very small peace of meat, covered with a sauce that added nothing to the beef, except disguising the grease.

This restaurant is located in the Intercontinental Hotel and completely worth trying. I had breakfast here three days, a lunch one day and dinner one night. I wouldn't say it is remarkable by any means, but the place was consistently good. Service was fine and the pricing a bit on the high side.
