Beautiful people, a nice atmosphere. But the food I cannot describe. One of my favorite restaurants, the kobi beef is delicious, the appetizers and everything else is too. The potatoes, the farofa... Simply yummy! Crazy expensive though...

We went to Varanda with a small group for a business dinner. Expectations were high - this place claims that it was continuously getting awards for best meat several years in a row. What can I say? You can not get bad meat in Brazil. Was it any better than in Fogo do Chao or Barbacoa? Definitely, not. But service... More

Argentinian steakhouses have proliferated throughout the world. Most are sad pastiches of a glorious culinary tradition. The last three I went to, including the Gaucho in London, knew very little about meat and served medium ordered meats over cooked. Criminal. Varanda is where it's at. Brazilian meat properly cooked. Absolute heaven!

We went to Varanda Grill expecting to have the best meat in town. It wasn't bad, but it was far from the best. We ordered chorizo with biro biro rice. Chorizo was a little over done and the rice was seriously over cooked. Service was excellent, but at the end, especially at that price, it was ok at best.

This restaurant is worth the minute wait and the price. It is special. The valets parking the sports cars may give you an idea of who goes there but it was the cherry on the sundae on the trip. As a foodie, I was impressed by the authentic Brazilian food. The service was impeccable and delectable. I ate the food... More

For those who like meat this is must. There are other good meat restaurants in Sao Paulo, but Varanda is the best. Just one issue. Very expensive.

Varanda Grill has been around for some years now, offering the best "churrasco" in São Paulo. Not long ago they opened a new restaurant in the very luxurious new Shopping Center JK Iguatemi. The mall itself is worth a visit. You will find the most important brands of the world in this very impressive shopping center. The new Varanda Grill... More

I usually hit this place on my way out of Sao Paolo, and back to Miami. It usually lunch, with good friends and business partners, before I leave, after a couple of weeks in Brazil. Great Food, have not tried the Kobe Beef, I see it as too expensive, and personally, have never been attracted to it. Could be I... More

Although not widely advertized, Varanda is presently the best steakhouse in São Paulo. Different cut's style and great meat. The best wine selection in town, and a sommelier who knows what he is talking about. As a side, try "palmito pupunha".
