Too expensive and not worth it

An cut of meat ranges between 80 to 100 reais per person, no side dishes included. It's a good restaurant but nothing extraordinary. ..so forjme not worh the money. Same thing with the environment: an ok decoration. Service is very good. Food is good.

The steaks are superb, the service is attentive but not intrusive, the wine list first-class, and the price is actually lower than some of the wannabe competitors. I will be back every time I need to hold a business lunch in SP.

This is not a place for quantity food. The touch is the quality of the meat, that comes from farms owned by the same restauranteur. There are many american, argentinian and brazilian cuts, along with excellent side dishes. If you are up to the couvert, don´t exagerate the side dishes, Some of the cuts are huge, you can share, some... More

Here is the place that you will certainly eat one of the best steaks in São Paulo. The service is excellent and the place is very fancy, but you do not think that will be cheap!!

In my opinion, Varanda is one of the best restaurants in Brazil. It has the perfect balance between food and atmosphere, especially for a business lunch or dinner. This is a perfecto spot to try Brazilian food in a nice location. The best "farofa" I tried in Brazil was in Varanda.

I've been to several steak places in Sao Paulo, but this is by far the best if you really appreciate a good piece of beef. If you're into fancy dressings, salads, etc. forget it - this is not the place. This is for steak lovers.
