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.

Varanda is a great restaurant, that provides top quality service and steaks. Although I do not consider it the best steak in the city, if you are willing to pay slightly more, you should definitely visit this steak house.

We recently ate dinner at the Veranda Grill during our visit to Sao Paulo for the Brazilian Grand Prix. We started out with caesar salad before indulging in our medium rare Brazilian style strip steak with Brazilian rice as our side. The steak was cooked to perfection and very tasty as was the rice. The service was professional but friendly.... More

The service and food are reasonable (not marvelous, not bad). No different from most Grill restaurants you may go anywhere in the world, with T-bone, Porterhouse, rib-eye etc. The decoration is of good taste and staff are efficient. The rates though are as high as the best restaurants you’ve been.

The quality of the meat and the service is fantastic, I had a medium porter-house that was magnificent. They side dishes are good, the Farofa that came with my dish was fabulous. The wine list can be another attractive. Only "but" is that this is a pricy restaurant, you can end-up payin 100 USD per person.
