Amazingly Delicious

I can't explain the sensation I had here. It was really good and one of the best places I've ever eaten! The variety was really good and the sweets were fantastic! Salad perfect and the tables disposition were worth it

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 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.

Staying in Jardins

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.
